Chatsworth-based Iris International Inc., a manufacturer and marketer of automated IVD urinalysis systems, said Thursday that it entered into a contract with the Mayo Foundation for the company's full line of products.


Under terms of the four-year contract, which carries a one-year extension option, Mayo Clinic will utilize iQ200 Systems and iQ Body Fluids Modules, consumable products, reagents and service agreements at its outpatient and inpatient facilities in Rochester, Minnesota; Jacksonville, Florida; and Scottsdale and Phoenix, Arizona. Mayo provides clinical care to more than half a million people each year.


"Large medical and clinical laboratories require high-throughput analyzers with an extensive, highly accurate and flexible test menu due to time pressures, extensive workloads and stringent clinical requirements," said Chief Executive Cesar Garcia in a statement. "The iQ200 high-speed analyzers are designed to meet these needs with fully automated walk-away capability and clinical data consolidation directly to the laboratory information system."
