New! 2900 biochemistry analyser for rapid testing
YSI is proud to launch its latest biochemistry analyser, the YSI 2900.
The 2900 still uses the presigious YSI immobilised enzyme technology, but has many technical innovations and enhanced features.
Economical and user-friendly, it currently makes accurate one-minute measurements of two compatible chemistries including: glucose, lactate, glutamine, glutamate, xylose, ethanol, methanol, sucrose, galactose, lactose, choline and hydrogen peroxide.
It is light, with a small footprint of just 8" wide by 20.5" deep. Its modular design allows for the future expansion of chemistries.
A noticeable feature of the 2900 is the large touch screen. This intuitive icon driven interface currently offers 8 language versions. It is extremely user-friendly and anybody new can quickly learn from the onboard training videos and operating manual.
There is no requirement for a turntable to run multiple samples as it has an integrated auto sampler, which has the capability for a 1 to 96 well plate, also a separate station for one-off samples. A wide variety of vials, tubes and plates may be used, allowing for smaller sample size 5–65 uL. The 2900 unique chamber design, with short and wide aspiration path, makes it extremely resistant to clogging, even with samples that have a high dissolved solids content.
Flexible data handling and connectivity allows the easy download of data to memory stick, PC or network via USB, Ethernet or RS232 ports.
