Every minute counts when waiting for accurate diagnostic test results to guide critical care decisions, making today's clinical lab more important than ever. In fact, nearly 70 percent of critical care decisions are driven by a diagnostic test[1].

As the world's older population increases at an unprecedented rate, and with chronic diseases on the rise, global testing volumes are significantly rising. At the same time, health systems are facing pressure to perform testing as efficiently as possible with limited staff and space, while also reducing costs. So, how can labs operate more efficiently to better serve patients and positively shape the future of healthcare?

Enter Alinity, Abbott’s state-of-the-art, harmonized family of systems for clinical diagnostics that provides screening ability for immunoassay, clinical chemistry, point of care, hematology, blood and plasma and molecular diagnostics. The Alinity system is poised to change the industry's testing paradigm through efficiency, speed and...

Leading-edge healthcare systems are recognizing the added value their own core laboratories can play in becoming more of a clinical decision engine, helping physicians interpret results and ask questions to ultimately help diagnose patients accurately and faster. Alinity is the latest cutting-edge diagnostics technology and the enabler that helps free up lab departments to consult more with their clinicians and hospitals. 

Developed based on thousands of insights from clinicians, scientists, lab technicians, and healthcare executives, Alinity is designed to be intuitive, uniform across the lab, and to provide better ROI.

With a smaller, more streamlined footprint, Alinity makes it easier for lab technicians to perform their jobs faster and with more accuracy as it is:

  • Intuitive and easy-to-use, with an integrated, uniform interface across instruments making it quick to learn and easy to use for all lab personnel
  • Continuously accessible and able to run any test at any time, including separate “lanes” for STAT samples that need immediate processing, with the ability to replace reagents without stopping the instrument, improving lab productivity
  • Error-proof, with proprietary lock-and-key reagent bottles so reagents can only fit in designated positions, helping safeguard against erroneous results

Abbott is leading the way in health technology to help people live better lives. Learn more about Alinity and how the new era of diagnostics testing is changing the healthcare paradigm at abbott.com/alinity.
