Video Making Accuracy Easy

With 98.5% uptime, small sample volume requirements, intuitive software and low reagent consumption, the small-footprint DxH 500 simplifies workflow for physician office and low-volume laboratories.

Spend time with your patients, not your analyzer 

  • Maximize uptime with built-in reliability, automatic start-up, efficient reagent usage and easy reagent replacement
  • Free up time to focus on higher value activities with the ability to change all three reagents in less than five minutes 
  • Use 50% less reagent, consume reagents half as fast, and take less time changing and restocking reagents with the analyzer’s efficient approach 

Leverage single-sample precision 

  • Obtain accurate results with samples as small as 12 μL of blood  
  • Save time by repeating testing on the same sample without another draw

Improve laboratory efficiency 

  • Enable fast analysis with the analyzer’s unique fluidic design  
  • Conserve valuable bench space with the DxH 500 analyzer’s small footprint and integrated computer  
  • Reduce operational complexity with the simplified user interface, which enables any command to be performed in three touches or less  
  • Advance your efforts to go paperless with the analyzer’s bi-directional LIS Interface 

Reduce operating costs  

  • Reduce disposal costs with cyanide-, azide- and formaldehyde-free reagents  
  • Lower electricity bills with the DxH 500’s efficient power handling
