A discrete analyzer is an automated chemical analyzer in which the instrument performs tests on samples that are kept in discrete containers in contrast to a continuous flow analyzer (SFA and/or FIA).
Discrete analyzers have had a long, successful history in the clinical market, and were introduced into the Environmental and Wine markets about a decade ago.
Like other discrete analyzers, Astoria-Pacific’s Discrete is very simple to operate:
The Operator selects the test(s) he/she would like to run and enters the Sample IDs and any other pertinent information for the analysis
Sample test tubes and reagent bottles are loaded onto the system
The run is started
The system uses its robotic arm, sample needle and syringe to mix samples and reagents in replaceable and inexpensive reaction cuvettes. NOTE: If selected to do so, the system can create a calibration curve from a single stock standard, thereby reducing time and errors related to manual techniques
Once the end point of the reaction is completed, the photometer measures the resultant absorbance
The data is collected by the rAPID software. NOTE: The data can then be exported to your LIMS system or other worksheet
