Excellent analyzer that meets international guidelines and delivers promised results.
Application Area: ESR analysis
"Device is very easy to use. It performs ESR as per approved CLSI guidelines in a very short time duration. Results are accurate and reproducible, matching with manual Westergren reference. Although the equipment is very sturdy and has minimal service need, a high Annual Maintenance Contract charge does not match with the service visits needed. Also, needed documentary support for assisting in lab accreditation process. Example: Multi site validation studies at different reading time, comparison with manual and other unrelated automatic analyzer. Lastly, the basic price of equipment and ESR tubes is very high. Even though this device meets international guidelines, it is still too expensive for a test like ESR, where clinical utility of results do not justify such high investment."
