Pictus 700 Overview

The 700 is a fully automated, random access, floor model analyzer. By utilizing a second reagent tray and second robotic arm, the 700 achieves a throughput of up to 720 tests per hour while occupying minimal space. The unit is extremely economical requiring no external water supply, no 220V electrical requirement, and utilizes reusable cuvettes via an on board wash station. This open system is very flexible and can run most general chemistry and drugs of abuse assays as well. The system is very easy to operate and is ideal for medium to large volume laboratories that require flexibility, high throughput and easy use.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.



  • Efficiency – The Pictus 700 incorporates a 95 position patient sample tray reducing the number of required daily runs. It also has programmable auto dilution for out of range tests. The reagents are very stable requiring few calibrations thus saving time and money. The 72 reagent positions (75 w/ISE) and onboard refrigeration allow for many tests to be kept on the analyzer at the same time.
  • Cost Savings – The 700 does not need an expensive water treatment that requires expensive upfront cost and continual purchase of filters. More savings will be realized by utilizing low cost reagentcalibrator and controls reducing the overall cost per reportable result. Furthermore, the extended service pricing is comparatively low versus other models of this type.
  • Easy to Operate – The Pictus 700 utilizes Windows based software for its operation and is very intuitive with barcoding for sample and reagent identification. It also accepts many sizes of primary tubes. Periodic maintenance is minimal and is easy to perform.
  • Space Utilization – The 700, although a floor model, takes surprisingly little space in the laboratory.
