AU5800 Clinical Chemistry System

The Fastest AU Analyzer Ever.

The AU5800 series is the newest addition to Beckman Coulter’s AU chemistry portfolio, representing the highest throughput and fastest chemistry analyzers in the AU family. With true random access capabilities and a throughput ranging from approximately 2,000 tests up to an impressive 9,800 tests per hour, the AU5800 is available in four different scalable models, positioned for the high-volume core hospital laboratory to the ultra-high-test volume commercial laboratory market segments.


Anchored around a set of core features that set the AU systems apart from the competition, the AU5800 series continues to follow high standards of AU reliability and maximum uptime with even more flexibility. Hardware consumables, reagents and operating software are standardized across the AU family to minimize training requirements and streamline inventory management.

The AU5800 is engineered for connectivity with Beckman Coulter’s Power Processor which allows for the integration of chemistry, immunoassay and clinical information systems. Additionally, PROService* connectivity provides a remote instrument diagnostic solution that enables the Beckman Call Center and Field Service Engineers the remote transfer, monitoring and analysis of data from connected Beckman Coulter Systems.

The comprehensive AU test menu consists of more than 125 convenient, bar-coded, liquid reagents that are standardized across the entire AU family of chemistry systems. The AU5800 employs three transportation lanes for intelligent sample management and a bypass lane provides flexible options for sample transportation by processing STAT samples and critical repeats prior to routine sample racks.

Sample Dispensing

  • Sample clot and liquid level detection
  • Sample and reagent probe crash protection

Two Optional High-Speed ISE Units

  • Single ISE with a maximum throughput of up to 900 tests/hr
  • Dual ISE flow cell with a maximum throughput of up to 1,800 tests/hr
  • Robust, long-life electrodes: warrantied for 6 months or 40,000 tests
  • Electrodes can be replaced individually
  • No preconditioning needed; electrodes are ready-to-use

Intuitive Graphical User Interface

  • Easy navigation with touch screen graphics, color coded alerts and tab functions
  • Direct menu page access via one click is possible
  • Customizable user menu
