Piccolo Chemistry Analyzer

LAB ACCURATE BLOOD CHEMISTRY ANALYSIS IN REAL TIME
The Piccolo Xpress is a portable clinical chemistry system designed for accurate, on-site patient testing.
The Piccolo allows healthcare providers to perform routine multi-chemistry panels using 0.1cc of whole blood, serum or plasma. The system uses patented reagent discs that contain up to 15 chemistry tests.
Care providers simply pipette the sample into the disc, insert the disc into the analyzer and results are printed or transferred to an LIS/EMR in about 12 minutes. No operator intervention is required.
The Piccolo Xpress employs on-board continuous intelligent Quality Control (iQC) to monitor the analyzer, reagent reactions and sample to ensure the highest quality and accuracy in results.

THREE SIMPLE STEPS – LOAD SAMPLE, INSERT DISC, READ RESULTS
Operating the Piccolo Xpress chemistry analyzer could not be any simpler.
With just 100 microliters of whole blood, serum or plasma; the Piccolo provides lab-accurate chemistry results in minutes. Using a series of disposable, single-use, all-inclusive reagent discs; care providers can diagnose, monitor and treat their patients more efficiently than through traditional reference laboratory means.
Step 1: Add Sample
Simply collect 0.1cc of whole blood, serum or plasma, and transfer it to the self-contained reagent disc. The single use, disposable disc contains all the reagents and diluent necessary to perform a complete fixed
multi-test panel.
Step 2: Insert Disc
Follow the touch screen commands. Place the disc into the analyzer drawer, enter requested information and the Piccolo Xpress does the rest. In approximately 12 minutes, results
are ready!
Step 3: Read Results
Complete panel results including patient demographics, chemistry concentrations, reference ranges, sample integrity indices and iQC are available on the full color display, printed on a self-adhesive print out, transmitted to an external printer, computer or LIS/EMR system. The Piccolo Xpress analyzer will store on-board up to 5000 patient and quality control results

ABAXIS IS MORE THAN A MANUFACTURER,
WE’RE YOUR LAB PARTNER
Where other providers often leave questions unanswered, Abaxis stays with you.
We realize that the responsibility for in-house lab results and the resulting patient diagnosis and treatment is not trivial. While the physical operation of the Piccolo is very easy, and the results are lab-accurate; managing lab results, record keeping and good laboratory practices may need more practice. Abaxis technical service representatives will provide ongoing proactive support for your in house laboratory, and will help you keep it running in tip-top shape.
Your initial installation training can generally be handled over the telephone or internet, and each Piccolo includes an introductory DVD to answer general questions. Your Piccolo sales representative can also be on-site to assist with the training and installation. We make sure that all your operators are able to successfully operate the Piccolo and follow good laboratory practices.
Additionally, our technical service representatives will call you to answer questions and ensure optimal operation after your installation and training – on days 3, 10, 30, 60, 90 and 120.
No other manufacturer goes to this length to ensure your continued satisfaction. Exceptional customer service is our mission because lab-accurate results are more than our product offering – it’s core to the care you deliver.
