Today Siemens Healthcare introduces the ADVIA Chemistry XPT System1 and ADVIA Centaur XPT Immunoassay System2 at the 2014 AACC Annual Meeting and Clinical Lab Expo, Chicago, July 27-31. The newest in the company’s portfolio of chemistry and immunoassay instruments for the central laboratory, these systems are designed to enable continuous and simple operation, facilitate delivery of high quality, rapid results, and work seamlessly with automation in high-volume laboratories.
“Faced with ever-increasing workload demands, our customers need easy-to-use solutions that enhance workflow and quickly provide the results,” said Franz Walt, CEO, Chemistry, Immunoassay, Automation and Diagnostics IT Business Unit, Diagnostics Division, Siemens Healthcare. “The ADVIA Chemistry XPT System and ADVIA Centaur XPT Immunoassay System are new central laboratory analyzers designed to meet these requirements.”
Each system features versatile technology that will enable a broad range of testing to assist clinicians in disease screening, diagnosing and monitoring. Additionally, easy operation will be supported with harmonized, intuitive software, large touchscreens and Siemens Remote Service diagnostics.
A fast system for the high-volume laboratory with a throughput of up to 2400 tests per hour, the ADVIA Chemistry XPT System achieves predictable turnaround times through a combination of micro-volume technology and aliquot retention. Sample aliquots are readily available onboard for testing and retesting; there is no need to return the tube to the system. The system also includes VeriSmart Technology, a combination of hardware and software checks to help ensure high-quality results.
The ADVIA Centaur XPT Immunoassay System is designed to process up to 240 tests per hour, upload test definitions on demand, and provide uninterrupted processing even when loading and unloading samples, reagents and supplies. The system is intended to require very little maintenance. Its user interface features powerful, easy-to-use software with extensive data management capabilities, and intelligent software algorithms are designed to support laboratory management of results by automatically providing effective diagnostic testing strategies.
Both systems are automation-ready, and can be connected to Siemens’ Aptio Automation, the company’s latest track-based automation system. They require no additional robotics, and utilize point-in-space technology which allows for sampling directly from the automation track. Also, the ADVIA Chemistry XPT System and ADVIA Centaur XPT Immunoassay System can be connected to the company’s CentraLink Data Management System, which streamlines workflow across automation, IT and instruments, and Siemens Remote Service (SRS).

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

Technology innovation is the driving force behind modern business and enterprises must respond by increasing the speed and efficiency of software delivery. The challenge is that existing enterprise applications are expensive to develop and difficult to modernize. This often results in what Gartner calls "Bimodal IT," where business struggle to apply modern tools and practices to traditional monolithic applications. But these existing assets can be modernized and made more efficient without havin...
