Technology and Equipment

State-of-the-Art Technology for Optimal and Accurate Results

The Nephrology Laboratory at Cincinnati Children's features state-of-the-art technology for optimal and accurate results. We only accept the best in our machinery — the highest quality, the latest releases, and the most comprehensive hardware available in today's medical manufacturing.

Siemens BN II Nephelometer

The BN™ II System is an easy-to-use, reliable nephelometric analyzer that offers a broad range of protein assays. With assays available across multiple sample types, you can conveniently assess numerous disease states such as gammopathies, kidney diseases, neurology, and chronic alcohol abuse—on just one system.

Integrated Chemistry System

The integrated chemistry system combines chemistry, STAT and specialty testing on a single, compact, easy-to-use system. With throughput of up to 400 photometric tests per hour (up to 800 with ISEs), increased onboard testing, reduced sample volume and easy operation, the AU480 delivers efficiency for laboratories around the world.


The Diasorin uses  a “Flash” chemiluminescence technology (CLIA) with paramagnetic microparticle solid phase based and offering the broadest test menus in the industry, including numerous specialty tests.

LIAISON® systems, improve the efficiency in many immunoassay laboratories due to it's innovative features, such as high throughput and continuous loading of samples, reagents and consumables in a user friendly fully automated analyser.

Dynex DSX and DS2 Elisa Systems

The DSX and DS2™ automated ELISA Systems are computer-controlled microplate processing system that fully automates ELISA assays. The systems automate the sample distribution, incubation, reagent addition, washing and detection phases of microplate assays. It is intended for use in clinical, research and industrial laboratories.

MESO QuickPlex SQ 120

The QuickPlex instrument offers affordable access to high-performance electrochemiluminescence immunoassays. This compact system has been engineered for reliability, ease of use, and low cost of ownership. The combination of rapid read times and the ability to perform multiple, simultaneous tests on a single sample increases productivity, saves sample, and delivers results quickly. The QuickPlex instrument has a wide menu of commercially available assay kits and a full line of components and reagents for developing your own assays.

BioTek™ Synergy™ H1 Hybrid Multi-Mode Monochromator Fluorescence Microplate Reader

Flexible monochromator-based detection with high performance dichroic-based filter detection. BioTek Synergy H1 Hybrid Multi-Mode Monochromator Fluorescence Microplate Readers with its monochromator optics supports top and bottom fluorescence intensity, UV-visible absorbance and high-performance luminescence detection.
