Tarrytown, N.Y., USA. Bayer HealthCare, Diagnostics Division, a member of the Bayer Group (NYSE: BAY - News), has announced the worldwide availability of its ADVIA Centaur XP Immunoassay System.

ADVIA Centaur XP system is a fully-automated, high-throughput immunoassay system enabling hospitals and reference laboratories to perform up to 240 tests per hour to keep pace with peak load times.

"Our aim is to better serve our customers by offering more analytical platforms, more assays and improved connectivity and integration," said Tony Bihl, President of Bayer Diagnostics. "The addition of ADVIA Centaur XP system to Bayer's portfolio provides additional ease-of-use, automation, and expanded capabilities for significant impact on productivity in a laboratory, while improving patient care."
