Microslides

Ortho Clinical Diagnostics

VITROS XT MicroSlides from Ortho Clinical Diagnostics feature multi-test technology that allows labs to run two tests simultaneously on one MicroSlide. Recently cleared for market by the US FDA, the system pairs tests that physicians typically order together while maintaining quality results. Available test pairs include: triglycerides and cholesterol, urea and creatinine, and glucose and calcium. By pairing commonly ordered tests to be run simultaneously, the microslides help improve performance and productivity in the clinical lab by enabling a higher test throughput without additional or larger analyzers. The miniaturized testing areas on each MicroSlide require a minimal amount of patient blood for each of the paired tests, an important advantage for vulnerable patients or those with venous access issues. Ortho’s VITROS XT MicroSlides are powered by DIGITAL CHEMISTRY technology, available in the VITROS XT 7600 Integrated System, which uses advanced optics to glean significant information from each test.
