A biochemistry analyzer, also known as a clinical chemistry analyzer, is used to measure metabolites present in biological samples such as blood or urine. The study of these liquids makes it possible to diagnose many diseases. An example of the use of this type of analyzer is the measurement of urinary creatinine to assess the filtration capacity of the kidneys.
When choosing a biochemistry analyzer it is important to take into account whether assay automation is required, the specificity of the reagents and the level of accuracy of the measurements. It is also important to consider capacity (maximum number of samples analyzed at the same time).
Please note that some models are designed for veterinary use.
