General

Which is the difference between Semiautomatic and Automatic Versions?

The Semiautomatic version was thought for laboratories that process a few quantities of samples day and the calibration is made manually. For Automatic version the reagents are connected directly to the analyzer and the calibration is automatically made, this version was thought for laboratories that process more than 15 samples per day.

Is Diestro Multilanguage?

Yes. The user could choose between these languages: French, spanish, english, Poland and Portuguese.

What kind of sample could be measure by the analyzer?

The sample could be measured directly from the primary tube with: Whole blood, Urine, Serum, Plasma, biological substances (sweat).

What is the function of the USB output?

It is to Update software, connect a printer or LIS system.

Could the analyzer be connected to LIS?

Yes, it could. The analyzer could be connected to any quality management systems.

Does autosampler works with an Automatic Basic unit?

No. The autosampler only works with Automatic Plus version, because the cabinet has to be conditioned to connect the autosampler.

What is it included with the analyzer?

The analyzer includes: a Quick start guide, Quality control sheet, 1 ISE urine 150 ml, 1 Trilevel 3 x 20 ml, 2 Sodium Conditioner, Manual CD, Capillary adaptators, Power supply, Cable to connect to the earth, Kit cable, Peristatic tubing and a fill port cleaner.

Consumables

What the fill port cleaner is?

It is a sort of sponge which protect and clean the needle.

How often do you recommend to use a Diestro Trilevel?

We recommend to pass the control every day before start working, and check that everything runs well with the measurement. It is the same if you make the control with Trilevel or Diestro Control. (the second one is for a single use, and it could be more expensive).

How often do you recommend to use a Diestro Control?

We recommend to pass the control every day before start working, and check that everything runs well with the measurement. It is the same if you make the control with Trilevel or Diestro Control. (the second one is for a single use, and it could be more expensive).

No, everything have be storage or transported between 5°C and 35°C except the Diestro Trilevel Control which need to be stored in the fridge once it is opened.

Options

In which analyzers could accept the internal barcode?

All, except semiautomatic basic, internal barcodes is always an option never included.

What kind of external barcode could be connected?

Any standard model with connection PC2.

Can I upgrade an analyzer after buy it?

Yes, at any time. By generating a code in the instrument and send it to us. We will proceed to generate a new code and give it back to you to enter into the instrument. Then you will have to put the new electrode, and then the new ion is ready to be measure.
