The 9180 Electrolyte Analyzer is designed to quickly and accurately conduct whole blood electrolyte testing in the laboratory or point of care. The six electrodes in the 9180 Electrolyte Analyzer measure sodium, potassium, chloride, ionized calcium, lithium with the use of the reference electrode. The 9180 Electrolyte Analyzer features interchangeable electrodes, a single SnapPak for all configurations, economy standby modes, and a sealed waste container.
Electrolyte results can be obtained from just 95ul of whole blood, serum, plasma, acetate or bicarbonate dialysate, or pre-diluted urine using a simple Yes/No dialog.
Several kind of sample container - collection tube, syringe, capillary or sample cup, Roche Microsampler - can be presented to the instrument probe for sampling. All reagents, as well as waste, are sealed in the convenient SnapPak container. The 9180 Electrolyte Analyzer monitors the amount of remaining reagent and prompts the user to insert a fresh SnapPak container when required. As a safeguard, a built-in sensor ensures that SnapPak has been correctly installed.
The analyser is fully automatic.
A two-point calibration is carried out every four hours and a one-point calibration with each test, ensuring precision and conformity to even the most stringent regulatory requirements. Reagent remaining in the SnapPak container is displayed for user reference with each calibration. To conserve reagents and maximize efficiency, the 9180 Electrolyte Analyzer can automatically enter stand-by mode during idle periods.
The 9180 Electrolyte Analyzer gives you a choice of seven different, interchangeable electrolyte configurations to fit your immediate and future testing needs. To change the configuration, all you have to do is substitute the electrode and recalibrate. There is no need to change reagents or replace any tubing.
Low maintenance is one of the hallmarks of analyzers, and the 9180 Electrolyte Analyzer is no exception. With its long-life, zero-maintenance electrodes, single-pump design and fluidic path, routine service is kept to a minimum. Reagents and waste are sealed in the SnapPak container, eliminating the need to change individual bottles or handle bio waste.
