Abaxis VS2 Chemistry Analyzer FAQ

Do you sell rotors/ testing profiles for the VS2 Chemistry Analyzer?
No, we do not sell the rotors that are used with the Abaxis VS2 analyzer. VetScan profiles are conveniently packaged as single-use plastic rotors. Please contact the manufacturer or your distributor to purchase these consumables.

What general maintenance should I perform on my VS2 Chemistry Analyzer to ensure it will continue to function properly over time?
You should frequently clean or replace the filter that covers the fan in the rear of the unit to avoid overheating.

Before loading a rotor into the tray you should always wipe down any residual fluid from the surface of the rotor. When the rotor spins up to speed, any residual fluid that remains on the rotor can splatter onto the optics that analyze results, causing the machine to report errors.

Can I use my VetScan to communicate with my lab management software?
Yes, please check with your practice management software supplier for updates/details.

Is the power supply rated for my country?
Yes it is, no adapter is needed.
Power Supply Specs: 100-240 volts AC, 50-60 Hz; or 12 volts DC

Does the VS2 require calibration?
No, the VS2 does not require calibration as it is self-calibrating each time a rotor is used.
