Environmental Analysis with the EasyChem 200
The EasyChem 200 is a high throughput discrete analyzer designed for labs looking to optimize automation and minimize costs.
It has a 60 sample capacity carousel and 27 cooled reagent positions. It can run up to 720 tests unattended at a max rate of 200 tests per hour.
Each sample can be tested for for multiple parameters and results can be exported into Excel, LIMS or to a shared drive.
No scientific background is required. The software is easy to use. Worklists can be created quickly. Once the instrument has been programmed, the operator is free to attend to other duties around the lab.
Every EasyChem 200 comes preprogrammed with standard EPA methods for wastewater, drinking water, surface water, seawater and soil. Additional methods are available upon request.

Daily operation of the EasyChem 200 is simple. Worklists can be programmed in under 5 minutes. Simply enter your sample information and select which chemistries you would like performed. Press play and the EasyChem 200 will run unattended for up to 720 tests.
Calibrations curves can be generated from a prepared standard. The EasyChem 200 can auto-dilute based on a preprogrammed concentration to ensure your results. All calibration information is automatically saved for traceability and can be exported into reports for auditing purposes.
The EasyChem 200 has up to 27 reagent positions. The reagent tray is refrigerated to extend the life of the reagents. Each tests uses microliters of reagents which can be a large cost savings over traditional flow instruments or manual testing.
The feature that sets the EasyChem 200 apart from other discrete analyzers is its integrated wash station. After a test is performed, the sample cuvette undergoes a 5 stage cleaning and QC. This eliminates the need for reusable cuvettes which can save the operator thousands of dollars each year compared other popular analyzers such as those offered by Seal or Thermo.
