Speed and accuracy made simple with the new YSI 2950
YSI is excited to introduce its newly launched 2950 into its product portfolio, as part of the 2900 Series of biochemistry analysers. The 2900 Series of instruments can measure a wide range of important chemistries, sugars and nutrients for the bioprocess, biopharma, biofuels and food and beverage markets.
The YSI 2900 Series is a flexible, modular platform with a range of configurations, options and accessories to meet laboratory needs. The base platform is the YSI 2900 with the 2950 platform being configurable with up to 3 sensor modules capable of measuring up to 6 chemistries from glucose, lactate, glutamine, glutamate, xylose, ethanol, methanol, sucrose, galactose, lactose, choline, glycerol and hydrogen peroxide, plus ISE measurement of ammonium and potassium.
Fast and accurate results are available in 1 minute or less, with integrated auto sampler, unique anti-clogging design, flexible sampling and connectivity. Calibrator and buffer bottles have optional reagent level sensing and the 2900 Series can accept a wide range of sample holders, including any standard 96 well, 4, 8 and 24 place test tube holders and microcentrifuge tubes. Evaporation of volatile analytes like methanol and ethanol is not a worry – the sipper needle is capable of piercing and sampling from a range of films available to seal 96 well plates.
The large, icon-driven touch screen and on-board training videos make operation simple and the screen is programmable in a number of foreign languages.
