respons®940 is an automated random access clinical chemistry analyzer and offers a constant throughput of minimum 400 tests/h, independently whether a mono- or two component reagent is used. Including the optionally available ISE module with additional 240 test/h the total throughout increases to 640 tests/h.


Together with modern software features, pre-programmed applications and carry over evasion lists, respons®940 analyzer delivers high quality results for a broad parameter portfolio.
Due to durable hard glass cuvettes, low reaction volume and maintenance free photometer, this analyzer offers the economic use and reliability required in small to medium sized labs.
