Automated instruments, such as the centrifugal analyzer
, promised to take the time and drudgery out of lab work.
The Analyst(R) is a compact centrifugal analyzer
capable of performing 14 different blood chemistry tests in 8-10 minutes.
Upon his return to Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Burtis became the group leader of the Centrifugal Analyzer
Group in the Molecular Anatomy Program.
Recently, Kessler and coworkers (9,10) introduced a laser-induced fluorescence system coupled to an automated centrifugal analyzer
as a nonimmunologic assay for urinary albumin.
Our 500-bed hospital laboratory was responding inadequately to an increased therapeutic drug monitoring demand with a five-year-old labor-intensive centrifugal analyzer
Some historians of automation might look back to the centrifugal analyzer
as the first challenge to multichannel analysis, but there is now at least one example of this technology that provides a profile of analytes on a single sample (1).
Immunoturbidimetric assays for serum apolipoproteins A1 and B using Cobas Bio centrifugal analyzer
A spectrophotometric assay based on this method, using a Cobas centrifugal analyzer
(Roche Diagnostics), has been in use in this laboratory for the past several years (3).
4) was also adapted to the Monarch 2000 centrifugal analyzer
Automated latex agglutination immunoassay of serum ferritin with a centrifugal analyzer
Enzymatic method for measuring ethylene glycol with a centrifugal analyzer
Each of the assays was repeated eight times with the CCD system, and these results were compared with results obtained using a Multistat III+ centrifugal analyzer
(Instrumentation Laboratory) and a Rainbow 96-well plate reader (Tecan US).
