Operator Interfacemicrolab_300_soft_web[1]

  • Easy-to-use
    The simplicity of the software allows a skilled technician to operate the Microlab 300 within an hour. Interactive and intuitive routines lead the operator to the results quickly. The system maintenance instructions are integrated in the software.
  • Onboard Quality Control
    QC results are stored in memory and are easily displayed on the screen. The software calculates the mean, standard deviation and coefficient of variation.
  • Patient Results
    Retrieval of results becomes even simpler with the Microlab 300. A special evaluate patient menu gives the possibility to retrieve measured data very easily. Up to 100 patient result reports are automatically stored.
