Laboratory Chemistry Analyzers: Kalstein Model Technical Characteristics

Advances in technology have enabled the relentless improvement of laboratory chemistry analysis devices. The globally renowned brand, Kalstein, is at the forefront of this evolution, providing high quality diagnostic equipment for medical laboratories. This review will focus on four models of Kalstein chemistry analyzers: YR05114, YR05115, YR05116 and YR05123.

Models YR05114, YR05115, and YR05116: A Precise Look at Biochemistry

Kalsteinโ€™s YR05114, YR05115, and YR05116 are must-have devices for any laboratory that aspires to perform rigorous biochemical testing. These models feature a kinetic, endpoint, two-point test mode. The main difference between the three models lies in the number and wavelengths that each offers.

The YR05114 model offers 5 wavelengths (340, 405, 505, 560, 630 nm), while the YR05115 and YR05116 models have 7 wavelengths with different values respectively. These wavelengths allow the detection of specific biochemical elements.

All these models stand out for their internal as well as external absorbance accuracy (0.0001 Abs, internal 0.00001 Abs), low repeatability variability (CV < 1%) and data storage capacity (โ‰ฅ10000). In addition, they implement an incubator with three preset temperatures (37 โ„ƒ, 30 โ„ƒ, 25 โ„ƒ) in each model with a remarkable accuracy of ยฑ 0.1 โ„ƒ.ย

Model YR05123: A Complete Stand-alone System

The Kalstein Model YR05123 is a fully automatic chemistry analyzer system and is an ideal choice for laboratories that desire high throughput with minimal manual intervention. This model utilizes different test modes, including kinetics, endpoint, fixed time, turbidimetry and absorbance. These additional test modes add versatility to the biochemical tests that can be performed.

This model has 8 wavelengths (340, 405, 450, 510, 510, 546, 578, 630, 700 nm) and is capable of performing up to 120 tests per hour. In addition, it offers a calibration and quality control position along with 54 reagent positions. Notable for its ability to reuse up to 81 sample cuvettes, this means it can handle a large volume of samples efficiently.

Technical Features in more detail

In both the YR05114, YR05115, YR05116 and YR05123 models, the sample volume that each model can handle ranges from 0 to 3000 uL, although a minimum of 500uL is recommended for optimal operation.

The analysis unit of these models is a flow cell made of 32 uL quartz glass, with a 10 mm optical path. The choice of quartz glass ensures long life, corrosion resistance and the ability to withstand extreme temperatures, all crucial features in a laboratory.

Final Focus: Data Management and Absorbance Accuracy

Another noteworthy feature of these Kalstein chemistry analyzers is their breadth of data storage-they have the ability to store more than 10,000 data points. This feature is valuable, especially in high-throughput environments where data collection and analysis are crucial.

Similarly, these analyzers stand out for their absorbance accuracy, being able to measure with an accuracy down to 0.00001 Abs. This accuracy makes them extremely reliable tools for any laboratory.

In conclusion, Kalstein laboratory chemistry analyzer models offer a wide range of options and with their accuracy, efficiency and versatility, they are equipment that every modern, rigorous laboratory should consider.
