The CA-660* is a compact, fully automated coagulation analyser. It combines proven and successful characteristics – such as the optical detection technology and the reagent system of its predecessors – with new features. In addition to routine testing, it also offers specialty coagulation testing such as D-dimer and von Willebrand Factor activity. It therefore provides a complete patient profile. It serves as a great primary analyser for low-volume haemostasis laboratories. Or as a powerful backup instrument in larger labs. The CA-660 has been designed in line with our advanced Silent Design concept, is of solid construction, hard-wearing and robust. And with its reliable performance, it will support you day in, day out, for years to come.

* In certain countries the CA-650 model is available instead of CA-660. Apart from different detector wavelengths adapted to the reagents used only in those countries, both models are identical.


Strong performance, high quality results

The CA-660* performs all the main clinically important clotting, chromogenic and immunological analyses. This means you can also perform a wide range of specialty testing to further investigate haemostatic disease status and perform fibrinolysis tests.

The CA-660 offers added clinical value and identifies D-dimers precisely and fully automatically. This makes it easier to monitor patients and rule out critical conditions in a wide range of coagulopathies. This test is often used for excluding deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. It is also useful for managing the increased risk of thrombosis in HIV patients undergoing retroviral treatment. With the CA-660, your results can now contribute even more to patient care by relating them to disease prognosis.

Simplify your daily laboratory work

Thanks to a colour LCD touch screen and an integrated barcode reader, the CA-660 is safe and easy to use. Automated sample identification makes sure the right tests are performed on the right samples. It also eliminates the need for sample batching, which reduces the turnaround time. The device also offers optimised turnaround times for D-dimer analyses and calibrations and because it’s so easy to use, it helps minimise the risk of errors.

Maintenance requirements are low, which ensures the system operates efficiently with little downtime. Integrated reagent cooling increases on-board reagent stability. And thanks to a range of sensor functions, the system is particularly safe to operate.
