A clinical chemistry analyzer is used to determine concentration of metabolites, proteins, sugars, and electrolytes in samples of bodily fluids, such as plasma, serum, urine, and others. It is a device where samples are first inserted in a slot or tray, then tests are programmed through a keypad, and results are displayed on a screen. An analyzer diagnoses and treats fatal diseases, such as diabetes, HIV, cancer, hepatitis, thyroid problems, and others. Clinical conditions of liver function, kidney function, and hemoglobin levels can be determined with the help of an analyzer. Technological advancements in clinical chemistry analyzers enable users to obtain accurate results in less duration.
