Piccolo Xpress®

Chemistry Analyzer

The Piccolo Xpress® chemistry analyzer allows healthcare practitioners to perform routine multi-chemistry panels using 0.1cc of whole blood, serum or plasma. That’s only 3 - 4 drops. The system uses patented single-use reagent discs which contain up to 14 chemistry tests.

Step 1: Add Sample

Simply collect 100uL of whole blood, serum or plasma and transfer it into the self-contained reagent disc. The disposable, single-use disc contains all the reagents and diluent necessary to perform a complete multi-test chemistry panel.

Step 2: Insert Disc

Follow the touch screen commands. Press “Analyze Sample”, then place the disc into the analyzer drawer. Enter the requested information and the Piccolo Xpress does the rest In approximately 12 minutes, the results are ready!

Step 3: Read Results

Complete panel results including patient demographics, chemistry concentrations, reference ranges, sample integrity indices and iQC® are available on the full color display, printed on a self-adhesive roll-tape, transmitted to an external printer, computer or LIS/EMR system. The Piccolo Xpress stores up to 5000 patient results.
