Analyzers, Laboratory, Body Fluid, Lactate

Definition : Laboratory analyzers dedicated to measure lactate in the body fluids (usually in plasma, serum, whole blood, or cerebrospinal fluid). Most lactate analyzers use amperometric methods (electric current is measured through an electrochemical cell, while a constant electric potential is applied to immobilized enzyme electrodes). These analyzers are used in the clinical laboratory (and also in STAT labs) to determine lactate acidosis and assess other disorders, such as cerebrovascular accidents and decreased liver perfusion.
