Clinical chemistry analyzers, also referred to as biochemistry analyzers, can generally be separated into two categories: Analyzers using standard chemistry and analyzers employing integrated clinical chemistry analysis.

Clinical diagnostics diagram

The most common analytical method used for clinical chemistry analysis is photometry—when the sample is mixed with a reagent to produce a color reaction. The second most common test method in analytical chemistry is ion-selective electrode (ISE) measurement.

Integrated analyzers combine photometric testing with immunoassay capabilities. Many immunoassays incorporate monoclonal or polyclonal antibodies that bind drugs and metabolites using a specific affinity for an epitope. These systems improve productivity and efficiency in laboratories and clinics that need to carry out both types of method analysis. Combining the methods also minimizes manual steps and processing, improving on research and point-of-care diagnostics.

Modern clinical chemistry analyzers are highly automated to ensure minimal manual processes, improved safety, and reduced risk of cross-contamination.

Analysis Speed, Accuracy & Cost-Efficiency

Advances in automation have led to a new generation of clinical chemistry systems with cutting-edge software and hardware solutions. These systems offer research and clinical laboratories high-throughput capabilities and reportable, cost-effective, accurate results.

Moreover, clinical chemistry systems and analyzers improve patient care, workstation consolidation, workflow efficiency.

Closed & Open Systems

Some companies offer dedicated systems for use with specific kits; these are known as closed systems. Others offer open systems, which can be used with several different assays and require careful calibration and validation of parameters by the user.

Modern clinical chemistry analyzers offer tests for various specific analytes, such as proteins, electrolytes and enzymes, and general chemistries. Furthermore, analyzers provide a selection of different measurement technologies, which typically include:

  • Absorbance photometry
  • Turbidimetry
  • Ion-selective potentiometry
  • Latex agglutination
  • Homogeneous EIA (Enzyme Immunoassay)

Lastly, these systems can analyze a range of sample types that include:

  • Serum
  • Urine
  • Plasma
  • Cerebrospinal fluid

Analyzer Specifications

It would not be unreasonable to expect a large, modern, automated chemistry analyzer to include the following technical specifications:

  • Random access capabilities: the ability to access an element at an arbitrary position in a sequence in equal time, independent of sequence size.
  • Qualitative checks for hemolysis, lipemia, and icterus.
  • Liquid level sensing, crash protection, clot/clog detection, and short sample detection.
  • Auto dilution and automatic reflex/repeat testing.
  • STAT functions: either simultaneous sampling, or ability to interrupt a sample run.
  • Sophisticated software that can be connected to LIS/LIMS.
  • Bi-directional interface

Clinical Chemistry Analyzer Leases that Meet Your Needs

Founder-Friendly Leases

Our lease agreements are founder-friendly and flexible, helping you preserve working capital, strengthen the cash flow of your business, and keep business credit lines open for expansions, staffing, and other crucial operational expenses and business development opportunities.

2-5 Year Lease Lengths

Leases range from 2 to 5 years. Length will depend on several factors, including how long you want to use the equipment, equipment type, and your company’s financial position. These are standard factors leasing companies consider and help us tailor a lease agreement to fit your needs.

Your Choice of Manufacturer

We don’t carry an inventory. This means you’re not limited to a specific set of manufacturers. Instead, you can pick the equipment that aligns with your business goals and preferences. We’ll work with the manufacturer of your choice to get the equipment in your facility as quickly as possible.

Maintenance & Repair Coverage

Bundle preventive maintenance and repair coverage with your lease agreement. You can spread those payments over time. Easily maintain your equipment, minimize the chances something will break down, repair instrumentation quickly, and simplify your payment processes.

End-of-Lease Options

At the end of your lease, you have multiple options. You can either renew the lease at a significantly lower price, purchase the machine outright based on the fair market value of the original pricing, or call it a day and we’ll come the pick up the equipment for you free of charge.

No Loan-Like Terms

Our leases do not include loan-like terms, which can be restrictive or harmful in certain situations. We do not require debt covenants, IP pledges, collateral,  or equity participation. Our goal is to maximize your flexibility. When you lease with us, you’re collaborating with a true business partner.

In-House Underwriting Process

Our underwriting is done in-house. You can expect quicker turnaround, allowing you respond to your equipment needs as they arise. We require less documentation than traditional lenders and financiers and can get the equipment you need in operation more quickly.
