To ensure optimum performance, every clinical analyser requires regular maintenance. When faced with increasing staff shortages, this can be a challenge for most laboratories.
The D-100 system requires minimal operator maintenance. Depending on laboratory throughput, this could be as little as once or twice per year.
In comparison, capillary electrophoresis/other HPLC systems require operators to perform maintenance tasks every week, and sometimes every day.
