How It Works

A True Discrete, Direct Read Measurement System

The SmartChem® 450 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 dependence on consumables and their availability.
