The Biosen blood glucose/lactate analysers by EKF Diagnostics are market leading bench-top analysers used by universities, research centres, hospitals, diabetes clinics and professional sports teams around the world.
Simple and easy to use, Biosen blood glucose/lactate analysers have established themselves as the product of choice for most of the UK’s leading Sport Science establishments, with the devices high accuracy and dependable reliability touted as one of the main reasons customers decided to purchase their Biosen device.
Biosen S-Line and Biosen C-Line devices use special enzymatic-amperometric chip sensor technology to deliver fast results and up to 120 results per hour, with a high degree of accuracy and a low cost per test.
Due to the long life of the sensor chip (Glucose: up to 60-days/7,500 tests; Lactate: up to 50-days/6,000 tests), the system requires little maintenance.
Features such as the multi-lingual touchscreen display with step-by-step instructions and large memory (up to 1,000 results) only add to the Biosen analyser’s user-friendliness.
Requiring just a 20 μl sample, the Biosen can test blood, plasma or serum to provide glucose and lactate values with excellent precision (less than 2% CV) over a wide measurement range (Glucose: 0.5 – 50 mmol/L; Lactate: 0.5 – 40 mmol/L). Unlike other blood analyser’s, Biosen samples remain stable for up to five-days (refrigeration recommended).
All Biosen analysers are supplied with an interface to connect to hospital or lab information systems (LIS). An integrated barcode reader and printer are also available with most configurations.
Calibration is performed automatically by the Biosen analyzer. The operator can choose from three different calibration modes:
- at startup
- time account
EKF Diagnostics provides a standard solution to calibrate the system for glucose and lactate testing.
