I would highly recommend the AU480 for small and mid-sized labs.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Drugs of Abuse preliminary testing

"I love this analyzer! My background is with Siemens analyzers so it took some time getting used to the AU software. It is user-friendly and for the most part the maintenance is easy to perform. Hotline response is very good and I have only had a few problems over the past year."

I would highly recommend this instrument for small and mid sized labs.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Clinical Laboratory

"I have been a Beckman Olympus user for over 10 years. We upgraded to the newer AU480 model 2 years ago. I find this instrument very reliable, and it is a work horse. Very little downtime. Maintenance is easy and the instrument is very user friendly. I would highly recommend."

Good analyzer, but improve on the HgA1C testing
Rating: 3.0

  • Application Area:Hemoglobin A1C Testing

"AU 480 analyzer is good, but when it comes to testing HgA1C, it becomes such a difficult analyzer. As a matter of fact, I have had some instances where it produced a different result, making it unreliable for A1C testing. Again, adding the hemolyzing reagent makes it very troubling for me. I wish patient specimen could be tested without the hemolyzing reagent. Other than the concern above, the analyzer is super!"

  • Application Area:Chemistry

"I love, love, love this analyzer! The software took some getting used to, but I can't believe how user-friendly it is! Maintenance is extremely easy. I have had very few problems in the last 2 years I have had this- a call to Hotline is usually all it takes- I only see my Service Guru for the regularly scheduled PMs. "
