Microplate washers are used to control the procedure of washing experimental samples arranged in plate-based formats. Compared to manual alternatives, advanced washers improve the speed and accuracy of many washing procedures. They are used in many applications such as ELISA, cell-based assays and microsphere-based assays. There are suitable washers for every lab’s needs - from [...]
State-of-the-art medical laboratory equipment can provide rapid and accurate testing services, but is very expensive. Small and medium-sized labs and those with budget constraints simple cannot afford such instruments. Leasing lab equipment is a convenient and practical alternative to buying it outright. This option allows them to meet the increased demand for testing and stay [...]
Every medical laboratory needs to maintain a quality management system to provide accurate, consistent test results. Transitioning to an Individualized Quality Control Plan (IQCP) is expected to be a major area of focus for laboratories in 2015. The CLIA Individualized Quality Control Plan (IQCP), a risk-based, objective approach to performing quality control testing was introduced [...]
In medical laboratories, electrolyte analyzers are used to measure the amount of specific electrolytes in blood or urine. Doctors order such tests as part of a regular physical exam or to check if a particular medication was effective in managing a patient’s electrolyte levels. There are different types of models available to meet different volume [...]
