A2O

Milti-Sample Automated Osmometer

The A2O from Advanced Instruments is a fully automated, multi-sample osmometer that incorporates over 50 years of applied technology experience in the field of freezing point osmometry. The A2O combines a functional design, exceptional analytical performance, and an intuitive software control package that is both powerful and elegantly simple to operate. Every aspect of the A2O has been intelligently engineered to fully automate osmolality testing with ease and simplicity. It is ideally suited for today’s busy laboratories, which are being asked to achieve more results, faster — yet with fewer resources.
