The Helena C-Series is a family of compact, semi-automated, photo-optical coagulation systems designed to perform clotting, chromogenic and immunoturbidimetric assays using plasma.

Detection principle:

  • Photo-optical
  • 1, 2 or 4 channel laser optics utilising 405nm wavelength
  • Suitable for icteric and lipaemic samples
  • Auto-start triggered by reagent addition


  • Clotting
  • Chromogenic
  • Immunoturbidimetric

Sample processing:

  • Integrates easily with bar-code scanner for automated patient ID and intelligent data-management software
  • 6, 12, or 24 sample incubation positions
  • Micro-volume testing — minimum test volume of 75μl

Main features

  • Double determination and mean value generation
  • STAT profile for up to 4 tests
  • Autosense optics allow true results without negative interferences from icteric or lipaemic samples
  • Low intra-assay and inter-assay CVs for all instruments in the normal and pathological range (PT, APTT CVs: <2%; FIB CV: <3%)
  • Integrates easily with barcode scanner for automated patient ID and intelligent data-management software
  • Stir-bar and ball free reaction vessels are supplied as single and double micro-cuvettes for fast and effective sample handling
  • Easy to maintain and clean, guaranteeing almost zero service requirements and a long product life with optional and cost free updates
  • Micro volume testing for excellent reagent savings and a low cost per test
  • Reagent stir position with magnetic stir bar
