Solutions you can trust in the most challenging conditions

Providing effective support in acute care settings means your equipment must perform flawlessly. Our VITROS® Assay Menu, coupled with our innovative proprietary enabling technologies, offers a full STAT menu and unique assays for the ICU and emergency departments. Giving doctors and clinicians the confidence they need to make fast, effective treatment decisions.

Testing solutions designed to help you meet your unique challenges


Proprietary dry chemistry testing technology that ensures accuracy and precision due to its interference filtering Spread Layer design and optimized processing steps using a multi-layer design. Its stable, dry format enables a long performance and calibration stability.


Enhanced chemiluminescence detection technology enables wide dynamic ranges and improves light signal output. Delivers excellent immunoassay sensitivity and precision with fewer unnecessary dilutions, repeats and redraws.


Automatically detects endogenous interferences and identifies sample quality concerns without the need for additional reagents and with no impact on throughput, protecting patients and providing confidence in results with less intervention.

24/7 critical testing availability

VITROS® Systems are always ready with no standby mode, priming, washes or reagent hydration.

Rapid sample turnaround time

Delivers real-time process monitoring, including sample indices, with fully documented traceability to protect result integrity and minimize workflow disruptions. Provides smooth, effortless and transparent reporting of diagnostic checks throughout sample and assay processing.

Automatic sample tray with intelligent sampling order

Balance processing demands and keep your samples moving.
