Electrolyte Analyzers – for Easy and Accurate Electrolyte Analysis

by Jeremy Linder Lab Equipment Supplier
Electrolyte analyzers help in accurate measurement of electrolytes such as Na+, K+, Li and Cl- present in whole blood, serum, urine, and plasma.  

Electrolyte analyzers are essential devices in all types of clinical laboratories and research settings. These analyzers measure electrolyte levels in the human body to detect metabolic imbalances and measure renal and cardiac function. These laboratory devices measure components such as  Calcium (Ca+), Sodium (Na+), Inorganic phosphorus (PO4-), Bicarbonate (HCO3-), Potassium (K+), Chloride (Cl-), and Magnesium (Mg+) in whole blood, serum, urine and plasma.  

Leading clinical laboratory equipment suppliers offer premium models of electrolyte analyzers integrated with high-end testing features to deliver precise test results. Featuring fully automated operation, these electrolyte devices are equipped with extensive QC and patient data storage capability. Most models are provided with a thermal printer to hold permanent data of each test along with test results, date, time, sample number and mode. Some of the other prominent features include - 

* Time-saving calibrations

* Operational flexibility

* Easy operation

* Quick change of analyte

* Precise control of calibrator volumes

* Low maintenance

* Accurate test results

Top Models of Electrolyte Analyzers  

Time is a critical factor as far as electrolyte analysis is concerned. Accurate sample analysis ensures timely assessment of various disorders. This requires laboratory professionals to use top quality electrolyte analyzers. Here are some of the top models of electrolyte analyzers – 

* Medica EasyLyte Na/K - This fully automated, microprocessor controlled system measures various combinations of sodium & potassium in whole blood, serum, plasma, or urine. It uses current ISE (Ion Selective Electrode) technology to make electrolyte measurements. Integrated with state-of-the-art electronics and innovative ergonomic design, this model includes automated sampling feature and extensive QC and patient data storage capability. The optional “EasySampler” feature provides automated batch sampling of serum, plasma, or diluted urine. 

* Roche / AVL 9130 – Regarded as a perfect solution for performing electrolytic analysis, this analyzer provides a fully automatic operation and occupies lesser counter space. It features a built-in thermal printer that holds permanent data of each test (including date, time, test results and sample number and mode). Some of the other prominent features include – microprocessor-controlled technology, interactive dialog program, time-saving calibrations, disposable electrodes and ease of operation. 

* IL 943 – Manufactured by Instrumentation Laboratory, this electrolyte analyzer is a flame photometer which is useful for measuring potassium, lithium and sodium concentration in serum, plasma, and aqueous solutions. It can run STATs tests (results can be obtained in 40 seconds) and is capable of performing tests on nearly 100 samples per hour. Operator guidance; data, fuel and air monitoring; and instrument diagnostics are other computer controlled functions that are available with this device.

* Medica EasyElectrolytes – Featuring a unique electrode design, this laboratory equipment measures Na+, K+, and Cl- in whole blood, serum, urine, and plasma. All the measured results are displayed and printed in 35 seconds on a 55 µL serum sample. A simple yes/no prompted display messages guide the user through analyzer operation. In addition, a modular design makes maintenance easy. 

* Roche / AVL 9180 – Ideal for use in healthcare centers, physician offices, laboratory settings and point-of-care units, AVL 9180 is the ultimate solution for performing electrolytic analysis from whole blood as well as plasma, urine dialysate, serum or aqueous standards. The analyzer is easy to use and fast and accurate sample analysis within one minute.
