POLESTAR Announces Launch of New Data Pro Plus(TM) Chemistry Analyzer for Physician-Office Laboratories

Next Generation Instrument Specifically for Physician Office Laboratories Debuts at Annual Meeting of the American College of Physicians

SAN DIEGO, April 20 - POLESTAR today announced the launch of the Data Pro Plus(TM), the next generation chemistry analyzer for physician office laboratories. Manufactured by Thermo Scientific, the Data Pro Plus will be exclusively available in the United States from POLESTAR, the leading resource for physician office laboratories. The instrument is on display in the POLESTAR booth (#1406) at the Annual Meeting of the American College of Physicians, taking place in San Diego, Calif., and is now available for purchase and delivery.

The Data Pro Plus represents the next generation in state-of-the-art chemistry analyzers and was specifically designed to be the ideal instrument for office-based laboratories. The instrument's compact bench top design, easy-to-use interface and moderate price point make it a versatile and cost-effective option for office-based labs. It offers a throughput of up to 230 tests per hour, on-board reagent inventory management and unlimited storage capacity for patient and control data.

"With the availability of the Data Pro Plus, physician office laboratories have a terrific option to improve the efficiency and cost effectiveness of their current lab," said Tim Hanahan, Distributor Sales Manager for POLESTAR. "The technological advancements of this instrument, coupled with its moderate price, can also help facilitate the shift to office-based testing for physician practices that have been reluctant to bring their chemistries in office."

POLESTAR will sell the Data Pro Plus direct to physicians and through its network of affiliated distributors. The instrument will also be available to POLESTAR SMARTLab(SM) customers, POLESTAR's full-service managed laboratory solution.
