Abstract:

A six-channel discrete-sample analyzer the RPT-720 capable of analyzing clinical specimens at the rate of 120 samples per hour is described. The machine is designed for an electrolyte battery consisting of sodium, potassium, chloride, bicarbonate, calcium, and phosphate. The machine uses ultramicro quantities of serum averaging around 29 microliters of sample per test. The basic principle of operation is use of a peristaltic pump to transfer sample and reagents from the sample turntable to the reaction turntable. Author
