Warranty and Service Information

Easy-to-Use Keypad, On-Screen Prompts - All tests are clearly enumerated on the keypad for fast, easy test selection - there's no guess work caused by "hidden" function keys. Computer prompts appear on the screen to conveniently step the user through testing. Default settings are preprogrammed but can easily be changed, if desired. (Instructions for changing parameters are provided).

State-of-the-Art Photo Optics - Four Independent photo-optic detection sources read all samples, regardless of turbidity. Samples can be read in duplicate or in single.

Computerized Features, On-board Quality Control - Cascade M-4 stores standard curves and calculates patient results, INRs and aPTT ratios. Quality control tasks are easy because Cascade M-4 can calculate mean, SD and CV, plus plot and print Levy-Jennings QC charts.

Compact, Lightweight - With a benchtop footprint smaller than 14" wide by 14" deep and a weight of approximately 21 pounds, Cascade M-4 is sized to fit any lab. Compact size, dependability and versatility make Cascade M-4 an excellent choice as a primary analyzer for smaller laboratories or as a backup unit for larger coagulation analyzers.
