Easy to use analyzer with small sample volume. Instrument use cost is high.
Application Area: Determines Erythrocyte Sedimentation for inflammation detection
"The Roller 20 is easy to use and decreases exposure to samples. Samples are scanned with on-board barcode reader allowing for positive sample ID. Hands on daily maintenance is about 5 minutes. After sales care by distributor Beckman Coulter has been very good with prompt response times to equipment issues. To use this instrument is more expensive than our previous method even though there are no consumables to buy. The cost is incurred by having to buy test cards to load available tests."
Alifax ESR analysers are the only ones capable to provide results in 20 seconds by measuring red blood cells aggregation overcoming the variables and limitations of the sedimentation method.
