Semi-automated instrument from the Max Generation

Stago UK continues to expand the range and functionality of its Max Generation series of haemostasis analysers with the STart Max, its latest semi-automated instrument. The redesigned system takes the robustness of its predecessor, the STart 4, and delivers greater functionality and practicality alongside a new, streamlined design in line with the current Max Generation family.

Semi-automated analysers are seen in laboratories of varying sizes, suitable for those which handle only a small volume of coagulation tests or used as back-up for the larger Max Generation instruments. However, they are increasingly seen to have a role to play alongside fully automated optical systems as an alternative method for their problematic samples.

“Problem samples can affect workflow and throughput, especially with laboratories facing high-pressure performance targets,” said product manager Yannig Querel.  “As the STart Max is unaffected by HIL interferences, it helps the laboratory maintain turnaround times if problem samples can be switched to a compact but speedy ally like the STart Max.”
