The emergency samples are processed first. The machine also allows the installation to automatically re-run the test (automated rerun), which runs under the protocol (automated reflex).
  • The RSH has a signal light system to notify the operation status of the sample
  • The sample aspirator is attached with a sensor to detect blood clots, air bubbles to ensure accurate sample suction, improve the reliability of the test.
  • Reagent probe incorporates a sensor that detects the reagent level, and can detect air bubbles forming in the reagent using pressure sensing technology; thus improving the test's reliability.

Sharing a variety of sample containers of the ARCHITECT family and sharing chemicals of the biochemical machines in the family, of which more than 90% is in liquid form, used immediately, encoded in two dimensions (containing information test name, lot, expiry date, test number, calibration curve).


5. Parameters: capable of analyzing many different types of tests


ARCHITECT c8000 is an open Biochemistry system with the ability to install 200 different test channels.

The Abbott Company offers more than 100 biochemical tests including conventional biochemical tests, specific proteins, drug concentration monitoring tests, toxins and drugs; and some other tests (See list of tests)


 1. Sample distribution center uses Robot mechanism (RSH - Robotic Sample Handler) with special design to improve sample processing efficiency.


  • Robot arm is capable of lifting the sample tray up, rotating the sample tray and transporting it to the barcode reader or transporting it to the sample suction position. Hence ARCHITECT c8000 is capable of prioritizing the transportation and handling of urgent samples, re-run samples, and diluted samples. At the same time, the machine also allows the setup to run tests in groups and according to a protocol.
  • Samples are processed continuously, can put samples on the machine or take samples out randomly, continuously.
  • The intuitive signal lights make it easy for examiners to see the active status of the sample.
2. Method of measuring FlexRateTM helps to expand the linearity of enzyme quantitative assays
  • Abbott's enzyme quantitative tests with the FlexRate measurement method allow an additional linear range expansion, 12 times more than similar tests from other companies, thus:
  • Reduced 89% need for sample dilution compared to other biochemical testers.
  • Speed up the test
  • Reduce costs due to dilution
3. Abbott's exclusive Integrated Chip Technology (ICT - Integrated Chip Technology) provides high quality ion-selective membrane electrolyte testing and simplest maintenance:
  • For fast and accurate electrolyte analysis results, only 15µL of sample is needed
  • Reduce Technician's work with automated maintenance and simple replacement (less than 5 minutes).
  • Each chip can run 45000 tests (15000 tests for each type of Na, K, Cl) thus reducing the cost of the test.
4. Electrostatic pressure stirrer improves the reliability of test results
  • The stirring rod is controlled by electric current to create a vibrating effect, thus minimizing the formation of air bubbles in the reaction solution.
  • Simple design minimizes maintenance work.
5. Technical cleaning cuvette SmartWashTM: Ensuring confidence in test results.
  • The 8-step washing process ensures efficient, clean rinsing of the fixed glass cuvettes
  • With SmartWashTM, the examiner can set the wash mode for each type of test, allowing maximum speed of testing and minimal cross-contamination between cuvettes.
  • The cuvette test automatically shows the quality of the cuvette before running the test.
6. Sample and reagent needle washing design with needle washing mode to limit cross contamination
  • The sample and reagent probe are attached to a shock-resistant suspension spring system.
  • The suction needle is coated with a special Teflon non-stick material
  • The active wash cup eliminates all remaining components that adhere to the inside, outside and the tip of the needle, thereby minimizing cross-contamination between samples.

The research program shows the level of cross contamination of the c8000 reaches less than 0.1 parts per million

The combination of anti-cross-contamination technology with RSH sample dispenser efficiency ensures test speed is not compromised if multiple tests are run in combination or with Immunology
