The miniiSED™ is the newest addition to the iSED® family of Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) analyzers from ALCOR Scientific. The miniiSED™ measurement of ESR is fast, accurate and unaffected by variables associated with traditional methodologies, such as hematocrit. This single position, fully automated ESR analyzer works directly from primary EDTA tubes or BD Microtainer® MAP Microtubes, requires 100 microliters of sample, has an internal barcode reader, and produces stat results in 15 seconds!
This compact fully-automated ESR analyzer utilizes photometric reading to quantify the Rouleaux formation, which is the earliest and most critical phase of sedimentation. miniiSEDs micro-flow cell captures the critical kinetics of RBC in highly controlled testing environment to produce ESR results in 15 seconds. The analyzers results are unaffected by the variables commonly associated with traditional ESR testing methods. Some of these variables include hematocrit, MCV and temperature.
The miniiSED™ is the ideal ESR analyzer for emergency rooms, POLs, and small hospital laboratories.
