Piccolo Xpress®

Quick, easy and accurate on-site chemistry test.

Compact and easy to use, the Piccolo Xpress® is a fully automated analyser that transmits essential parameters and delivers results in no time.

No sending of samples and no long waiting time: analysis results are immediately available - this saves time and optimises logistics. In addition, the Piccolo Xpress® does not require any sample preparation. Daily checks are performed using the iQC ™ system, which automatically performs and assesses over 100 quality checks for each sample.

As the device does not come into direct contact with blood or the reagent, it requires practically no maintenance. The color touch screen and simple menu tracking ensure intuitive operation of the system - requiring minimal user training.

Single-use discs already contain the dilution medium and different combinations of chemical reagents to measure up to 14 parameters per disc, making this device a true Point of Care system. From 100 μl of whole blood with lithium heparin, plasma or serum, the Piccolo Xpress® provides precise biological results for the daily routine.
