Product Overview

High Capacity Automated Wet Chemistry Platform

The AMS Alliance SmartChem® Discrete Analyzer is a wet chemistry platform for automated photometric and electrochemical analysis. SmartChem® consolidates different techniques from your laboratory into a single platform, optimizing your laboratory operation in terms of running samples, calibrations, standards, maintenance, and operator training.

Our tabletop and stand-alone Smartchem® analyzers offer complete analytical solutions with our ready-to-use reagents. They run from 160 to 600 tests per hour and have different loading capacities for samples and reagents.

SmartChem® offers a reliable and convenient walk-away solution to increase your laboratory’s productivity. It allows your staff to concentrate on added-value activities and tasks, while guaranteeing repeatability, traceability, and regulatory compliance.

How it Works

The SmartChem® Series uses direct read photometry, utilizing a true discrete, direct read measurement system and reusable, high-purity optical cuvettes, eliminating compromised sample measurement.

SmartChem® simplifies your laboratory's work in a short series of steps:

  1. Load samples and reagents in your SmartChem®
  2. Set up your test
  3. Load your work program in the SmartChem® software
  4. Launch your programmed routine
  5. Get the results

Additionally, SmartChem® cuvettes are being washed after each use, making them available for the next reaction/measurement and reducing your dependance on consumables and their availability.
