automated analyzer

A chemical instrument to perform assays with a minimum of human intervention.

batch analyzer

An automated chemical analyzer in which the instrument system sequentially performs a single test or multiple tests on each of a group of samples.

continuous flow analyzer

An automated chemical analyzer in which the samples and reagents are pumped continuously through a system of modules interconnected by tubing.

discrete analyzer
