Reliable results and wonderful analyzer!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Analyze solutes in a solution

"The Osmo1 is a wonderful instrument. You can rely on the results. When testing in duplicate the results are always within 2 of the original results. The analyzer is simple to use and maintain. I have used an analyzer like this for 15+ years and have never had an instrument related failure. Advance Instruments offers the supplies that a medical laboratory scientist needs to perform linearities, quality controls, and set standards for this analyzer. There is no reconstituting the reagents associated with this analyzer. This saves time. The ease of use of this analyzer is also a plus."

Good little instrument.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Hospital laboratory for osmometer orders - serum and urine

"Ease of use: very easy to run but the calibration takes forever and cannot use other controls beyond Advanced Instruments' ones. This is why I cannot give 5 stars. After sales care: No problems here - tech service is very good. Value for money: Reliable, easy to take cvare of the instrument."

Great product!
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Community hospital laboratory - serum/plasm/urine

"The Osmo1 was very easy to set up. Instructions were easy to follow. I like that the printer is incorporated into the analyzer and that the consumable boxes have sensors that count down the number of tips left. Very easy for staff to use."

Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Analyze urine and serum osmolality in a clinical setting

"Great customer service, the FSE was knowledgeable and personable. The analyzer, which was an updated version of our previous osmometer, provides ease of use, updated technology, and produces accurate and reproducible results. The Osmo1 single sample micro osmometer makes maintaining regulatory compliance simple."

Advanced Instruments has set the bar high!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Hospital laboratory

"This instrument is a valuable tool within our facility. The set up was extremely easy. There are a lot of features for programming if you require passwords for individual users or if you just want any lab personnel to be able to run a sample. I like that I can decide how to set it up. Maintenance is easy to perform, it is not time consuming, or something you need to dig out the manual for complex instructions. The supply pack has a sensor in it so when consumables need to be replaced it will auto-update the supplies and alert when supplies are >50 onboard. I had my doubts with the sensors on the pack but we have only had one faulty sensor and the company response was amazing. They gave the option of sending me a new sensor that I could place under the current pack or offered to send a new consumable pack. Customer service is something we all value, especially when working in the lab and in a rural laboratory. This company is outstanding. I look forward to doing business with them for many years to come."

"I am the technical specialist for the area. The ease of use and small sample volume needed are what has impressed me the most. Also the programming ability.

The instruments allows us to produce not only a quality result but we do it the most efficient way possible."

Solid osmolality performer 24/7.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Hospital - Patient serum and urine osmolality

"The Osmo1 follows in the footsteps of its predecessors like the 3250. The introduction of barcode scanning and touch screen has provided better functionality and connectivity. The device has rock solid performance and uses the same supplies as the 3250. Advanced Instruments is definitely the market leader when it comes to osmolality measurement with accurate results for patient clinical use in a 24/7 environment."

A high quality instrument, accurate results, easy to use!
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Solution testing

"The Osmol 1 osmometer is a very simple to use osmometer. The instrument is reliable, robust, accurate and very fast at collecting data. Our department have been using it for over a year and a half and I have never experienced any big issue with it. We ran into a couple of user issues from our end while installing the instrument but tech support were easy to reach, helpful and were able to walk us through the issue within minutes. Overall it is a high quality instrument, accurate results, easy to use."
