Product Movie

A New Generation of Clinical Chemistry

Safety and Simplicity in Operation, Compactness, Diversity in Tests…. ALL in ONE

DRI-CHEM from FUJIFILM is a dry chemistry analyzer which can perform multiple test parameters of Clinical Chemistry. 
It has a built-in auto-pipetting system, requires no calibration*1 and no water, providing easy preparation and maintenance. The new DRI-CHEM NX500 delivers results using a simple 3-step procedure. With its quick, easy operation and compactness, 
“Real Time and Borderless” Clinical Chemistry is made possible.

Easy operation by touch screen

5.7 inch VGA, 640 5 480. Qwerty touch Key board. Basic Mode / Advanced Mode are available according to user preference. 
(Basic Mode: displays operation procedure for one sample only.   Advanced Mode: displays operation procedure for one sample and measurement status for previous measured samples.) 

No pre-treatment of sample required

Plasma Filter (PF) can cut the turn around time and the pre-treatment process of the sample. It can generate plasma sample by aspirating and separating the whole blood inside the PF within 1 minute. Just set the PF on top of the sample tube and press START.

  • * PF function is available in NX500 only.
  • * TCO2: not applicable

A range of sample tubes can be used

Blood Collection Tube (φ13~16 × 75~100mm) 
FUJI PLAIN TUBE (0.5mL, 1.5mL) 

Accurate and reliable test results from long term and field-proven technology & experience

The FUJI DRI-CHEM slide reagent has high reliability and stability brought by fine chemical technology cultivated through the long history of FUJIFILM in photographic film manufacturing. 
Less variation of results between operators, high result reproducibility and daily precision, 
and excellent correlation with wet chemistry are its remarkable features.

Colorimetric method slide
(Enzymes, General chemistry, and Immunology)

This multilayered slide is composed of dry chemical ingredients needed for the reaction and other functional materials. It quantifies enzymes and chemicals using colorimetric method.

Potentiometric method slide

Each slide comes with an ion selective film electrode for each of Na, K, and Cl. Slides quantify electrolytes in the sample by a potentiometric method.
