Is the VS2 a "one test at a time" system?

No. The VS2 offers a variety of assays in a number of preconfigured panels for the utmost flexibility, while requiring only seconds of hands-on time, and providing the lowest possible operating costs.

Do I need a separate instrument for electrolytes or blood gases?

No. The VS2 offers Na+, K+, tCO2, and Cl- which can be run on the same unit, test procedure, and sample.

Can the analyzer detect a flawed or defective rotor?

Yes. The VS2's extensive Intelligent Quality Control (iQC) detects any flaw or potential anomaly in the rotor. Abaxis also provides a Performance Guarantee covering manufacture defective rotors. (This does not include cancellations or assay suppressions due to improper rotor storage, operator error, or poor sample integrity.)

How many species can the VS2 store for reference ranges?

In addition to cat, dog, and horse, the VS2 includes pre-determined specie labels for entering your own reference ranges, and also provides 99 open labels for adding further species.

How many result records can the VS2 hold?

The VS2 stores the results of the last 5000 rotors run. Thereafter, the VS2 replaces the oldest record with the most recent.
