“There is strong demand for a small benchtop with a comprehensive menu. Space is tight, and the more you can do on a small footprint the better. Having drug screening reagents along with general chemistry tests to perform comprehensive metabolic tests as well as special chemistry tests is a game changer for clinical laboratories that might not have space or large equipment budgets,” adds Phil Shugart, CEO of Carolina Liquid Chemistries, a veteran owned small business (VOSB) that has been manufacturing and supplying clinical laboratories with general chemistry reagents since 1994. Mr. Shugart continues, “Historically, the menu the DZ-Lite c270 offers would have to be performed on much larger floor model chemistry analyzers with high costs and a lot of maintenance. Now, a small clinical lab can run both special and general chemistries along with drug screening tests on the DZ-Lite c270. For larger clinical labs, it makes a lot of sense to use the DZ-Lite c270 as both a dedicated special chemistry analyzer and as a backup or extra capacity for their general chemistries or a dedicated drug screening platform.”

The DZ-Lite c270 distributed by Carolina Liquid Chemistries is a fully-automated, open system, benchtop analyzer with throughput up to 270 tests/hour, 36 reagent positions, and 30 sample positions. With its compact footprint and fast performance, this analyzer can be used in all types of clinical laboratory settings such as reference laboratories, hospitals, physician offices with clinical labs, pain practices, addiction centers and more.
