ORTHO VISION® Max Analyzer

ORTHO VISION® Max Analyzer

Imagine a lab where you can add samples on the fly without interruption, process STAT and routine tests, conduct reflex testing, screen against selected cell panels, and run titration studies for serial dilutions – all on the same instrument. That’s exactly what you get with Responsive Automation, a transformational approach designed to help you virtually eliminate the waiting games you used to just accept as part of the job.

Benefits & Features


Dynamic Workflow Management

  • Customize features according to your lab’s unique needs and accommodate unpredictable workflows – all while reducing the need for batch testing.
  • Most diverse testing menu on the market today goes beyond types and screens by automating and standardizing the full range of immunohematology testing.*
  • Handles a wide variety of sample tubes down to 300 μl. 
  • Custom programming for user-defined protocols so you can define, create, validate and implement assay protocols for specific disease states.


Unique Scheduling Intelligence

  • Continuous access means you can load on the fly and prioritize STAT requests while the system continues to handle full test volumes.
  • Minimum four-hour walk-away time while fully loaded and up to 24 hours of productivity let you dedicate resources to other important tasks.
  • Real-time sample process monitoring for precise time-to-completion information.
  • Everything works together to provide continuous workflows.
  • Minimized need for batching.



Clear results, whenever and wherever you need them

  • Patented imaging system delivers results at a high resolution for consistent, accurate and specific results.
  • Virtual collaboration means you can review results from anywhere you have an Internet connection.
  • ID-MTS™ Gel Cards feature industry-accepted column agglutination technology (CAT). 
  • Accurate and standardized results – even with weak reactions – allows lab professionals to perform at higher levels and improve decision-making.
  • Proprietary safety technology verifies documents.


Simple to use with multiple security features

  • User-friendly interface provides a wide range of informatics to help you monitor the performance of your instrument.
  • Safety checks and alert system allow the instrument to work independently while flagging the operator when intervention is needed.
  • Proprietary INTELLICHECK® technology and advanced image verification ensure the accuracy of diagnostic checks.
  • e-Connectivity™ Technology provides secure, real-time, two-way interactive connection for 24/7 remote data tracking.
  • Self-service features help increase uptime by allowing you to perform many of the required maintenance activities, such as probe changes, yourself. 
  • Full traceability, operator notification and exception documentation.
