Analyzers, Laboratory, Multitechnology

Definition : Laboratory analyzers designed to perform tests using techniques such as immunoassay, molecular assay (e.g., DNA and RNA determinations), and clinical chemistry (e.g., enzymatic assays). These analyzers include a multiwell (typically 96 wells) plate; measuring systems, frequently using flow-cytometry techniques; a laser radiation source used to identify each individual microsphere thus allowing multiple simultaneous assessments; an electronic processing unit; and a display. Multitechnology analyzers using microsphere techniques typically apply one of several combinations of fluorescent dyes (e.g., Texas Red) to each sphere for a unique spectral identification of the microsphere sets, facilitating many simultaneous assays using a single sample volume. The analyzers can perform simultaneous tests in the same well using small-volume samples; they are used in clinical laboratories and for pharmaceutical research.
