The system can be configured with up to different assays including Ion Selective Electrode ISE analysis of sodium, potassium, and chloride with up to 65 different reagents onboard. Individual assay time is a maximum of 10 minutes.

Quality control using Levy-Jennings and Westgard rules used and on-board data storage is on the hard drive of the SCC. Operational modes include random, continuous access and priority processing. Endpoint and rate reactions are calculated using absorbance measurements that are converted into concentration units.

Absorbance measurements are made using a diode array detection system. Integrated Chip Technology ICT for electrolyte determinations consists of an integrated module using ion selective electrode technology.

The c uses permanent, rectangular glass cuvettes in a temperature controlled water bath containing 1. The instrument holds 11 cuvette segments. Each segment contains 15 individual cuvettes. The light path length for the cuvettes is 5 mm.

A cuvette washer is used to distribute diluted alkaline and acid solutions during the cuvette wash process. Dual mixers are used to mix the sample and reagent in preparation for final analysis.

Two refrigerated reagent supply centers are incorporated for on-board storage of reagents. A 32 position sample carousel is used to process priority patients, calibrators and controls. The carousel is cooled to provide additional calibrator and control stability. Sample carriers are used to transport patient samples throughout the system. Each carrier has a capacity of five samples.

The RSH is used to move the carriers to the proper position for sampling. Sample pressure monitoring circuitry is incorporated for clot and bubble detection on the sample pipettor. An alert is issued when a clot or bubble is detected providing the operator the opportunity to rerun or check the quality of the sample. The reagent pipettors do not have pressure monitoring. The chassis and external cover are stripped and or sanded and painted. All tubing, with the exception of some Teflon tubing if found to be in excellent condition are replaced.

Next the instrument will be re-assembled, inspected and put thru the same verification procedures as the instrument went through initially at the factory, including clinical background check, carryover testing, precision, calibration and three levels of control testing.

In the end, a certificate of quality assurance will be attached to the report of all test result and diagnostic testing and a refurbish record will be created for each instrument. Reagents, controls, and consumables may be available. Service contracts may be available.
