600W power supply runs immunoassay blood analyser

A manufacturer of in-vitro devices (IVD) has selected the Artesyn LCM600 AC-DC power supply from Advanced Energy for its next generation immunoassay analyser with the aim of making the latest medical advancements more cost-effective for the world’s laboratories.

Immunoassays are biochemical tests which measure the presence or concentration of a substance, including blood analysis, providing information for diagnostic, monitoring or compatibility purposes.

The medically-approved* Artesyn LCM600 series provides a reliable, high-quality power supply at a reasonable price. The result is a high performing blood analyser with a throughput of up to 500 tests per hour with the first report available in just 30 minutes and an intuitive, simple design.

The Artesyn LCM series AC-DC power supplies from Advanced Energy are available in a range from 300 to 3000 watts and have built a reputation for outstanding quality and high efficiency at a competitive cost.

LCM series power supplies accept operating inputs between 90 Vac and 264 Vac (85-264 Vac for the LCM600 series). All output voltages can be trimmed to a percentage of their nominal value (±10% or ±20% depending on the model), which means that almost any output voltage between 9.6 and 57.6 V can be provided by LCM series power supplies.

Current sharing capability allows multiple power supplies to be connected in parallel for higher power applications. Variable-speed ‘Smart Speed’ fans draw on software controls developed by Advanced Energy to match fan speed to the power supply’s cooling requirement and load current. Digital control enables the LCM family to be rapidly and cost-effectively modified to suit the exact needs of your application.

* Models tested according to the medical standard IEC 60601-1-2 4th Edition.
