This device appears to be in good condition and operational. It passes it the self-tests and maves into programming mode smoothly. There are no cracks or obvious faults externally. The display and keypad are undamaged and the power supply is operational. The condition of the battery was not checked, however it is sufficient to function without charging on power up. I can find very little about the TAS on the net. What I did see appears to indicate this system was developed in the late 1990s and was produced into the mid 2000s. It appears Bayer may be producing the RapidPoint TAS based on this instrument.
From what I can see: this analyzer is a lightweight, all solid state, microprocessor controlled system for monitoring coagulation and fibrinolysis. The analyzers keypad allows an operator to enter patient ID, operator ID, set Quality Control performance intervals, define Quality Control ranges and prohibit testing patient samples unless Quality Control as been successfully performed through the QC Lockout function. The TAS has an internal memory capable of storing up to 1000 patient results. Each test results includes patient ID, test type, sample type, date and time of test, lot number, analyzer serial number. An RS232 serial port allows for interface with a printer.
