STart Max coagulation analyser
Easy-to-use coagulation analyser for the needs of small laboratories
Diagnostica Stago STart Max is a four-channel, semi-automatic coagulation test device designed for a small laboratory and suitable for assays based on coagulation time measurements (e.g. PT/INR, APTT, fibrinogen). The device has 16 incubation places for samples and two for reagents.
Patented measuring method
To ensure high-quality results, the STart Max Analyser utilises a proprietary measurement method patented by Diagnostica Stago in which sample coagulation is measured completely mechanically. The procedure is the same as for other Stago coagulation analysers, and it is not sensitive to optical artifacts such as lipemia, jaundice or haemolysis.
Handy and carefree
With its graphical touchscreen, STart Max is easy to use. Behind the menus, you can find results archives, method calibration and QC statistics. The initiation of a coagulation reaction is reproducible and accurate due to a separate start pipette. The optional barcode scanner makes it faster to read sample identifiers and add them to the device memory. The results are transferred electronically to the LIS system as with larger laboratory equipment.
The greatest advantage of the device is its infinite ease: when not needed, you can place it out of the way for a long time without the need for further calibration or maintenance. The device is practically maintenance free.
