Solid state chip-based Lactate and/or Glucose Analyzer (No membrane)!
Lactate and/or Glucose,
depending on chip sensor used.
- Better sample handling: A 20ul capillary is inserted into a pre-filled reaction capsule. This capsule is then shaken and dropped into the sample tray for automatic analysis.
- Speed: 10 second per analysis, 40 seconds between samples.
- High throughput: Up to 100 samples per hour, multiple sample trays may be pre-loaded.
- No sample deterioration: Sample is stable up to 12 hours without refrigeration.
- Low operating cost: Low consumption of consumable supplies. Sensor lifetime is 50 days or approx. 6000 tests.
- Mobile use possible with optional AC:DC power adapter

See also "Assessment of blood lactate: practical evaluation of the Biosen 5030 lactate analyzer" Davidson et al, Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise.
For more demanding sample throughput models are available with a sample tray that holds 63 samples.
The Biosen lactate analyzers have received all European approvals but have not been submitted for US FDA approval, which means in the US they can only be sold for teaching, laboratory and research applications, not for clinical use.
