Altair™ 240 Automated Benchtop Chemistry Analyzer


The Altair 240 is the ideal solution for labs, doctors’ offices, clinics and veterinary labs in need of a benchtop chemistry analyzer.

The Altair 240 is the ideal solution for any lab in need of a benchtop chemistry analyzer.  The analyzer is supported by a full-range of bar-coded, liquid-stable, ready-to-use Stanbio Chemistry reagents and at less than a meter in length the unit fits easily into most laboratory benches.

With positions for 43 reagents and the ability to configure open channels if needed, the Altair 240 provides a comprehensive solution tailored to meet the demands of your laboratory.

The Altair 240 automatically reads and manages barcoded reagent bottles and primary sample tubes. Most reagents have 30-day on-board stability to minimize waste.

The built-in cuvette washing system also allows you to reuse cuvettes, lowering operating costs for your lab.

  • Set up patient samples and order tests with ease
  • View work sessions in real-time, check reagent test levels and perform STAT procedures
  • Call up results ‘by patient’ or ‘by method’ at the touch or a button
  • View QC results quickly, using Levey-Jennings plots on three levels of controls

Automated performance

The Altair™ 240 Benchtop Chemistry Analyzer automatically reads and manages barcoded reagent bottles and primary sample tubes. Most reagents have 30-day on-board stability to minimize waste. The intuitive Windows®-based software screens make learning and operating the analyzer quick and easy.

Fast and efficient

The Altair™ 240 Automated Benchtop Chemistry Analyzer can run up to 400 tests per hour with an optional Ion Sensitive Electrode (ISE) module; it will also run 240 tests per hour without the ISE module. Dual reagent probes translate to higher throughput and faster patient turn-around time. The increased efficiency of reusable cuvettes allows lower operating costs for your lab.

Touchscreen software

The intuitive touchscreen allows you to easily program work lists, perform actions inside working sessions and view results.
