OPTI LION™ Electrolyte Analyzer
- Provides fast accurate results for electrolytes, ionized calcium and pH.
- Runs samples of whole blood, plasma and serum.
- Uses innovative optical technology.
- Requires minimal maintenance—no fluids or electrodes.
- Lab-quality results
The OPTI LION™ Electrolyte Analyzer provides lab-quality results with zero standby cost. The single-use consumable is only used during a measurement and safely locks waste inside.
- Low maintenance
The innovative optical fluorescence technology of the OPTI LION analyzer eliminates electrodes, and its unique sensor construction prevents lipid/protein build-up. In addition, the single-use cassette does not require a fluidics system, eliminating tubing maintenance.
- Reusable controls
The OPTI LION analyzer has reusable quality-control cassettes to eliminate the cost associated with performing daily liquid quality control.
- Measured pH and ionized calcium along with sodium, potassium and chloride
The OPTI LION analyzer measures pH and ionized calcium in the same single-use cartridge that also measures sodium, potassium and chloride simultaneously, providing a more complete picture of the patient’s status.
The OPTI LION™ Electrolyte Analyzer uses ready-to-use single-use cassettes that let you test for a range of blood gas parameters:
|E-Plus||pH, Na+, K+, Cl–, Ca++|
|E-Lytes||Na+, K+, Cl–|
HOW TO USE.
The OPTI LION™ Electrolyte Analyzer is easy to run:
The user-friendly touch screen, with simple menu navigation, can be used with minimal training.
Automated sample aspiration reduces pre analytical errors and training.
Measuring pH allows for measured and normalized ionized calcium.
Running the OPTI LION analyzer:
Scan the cassette bar code
Open the cassette packaging and place the cassette into the sample measurement chamber and close the cover
Attach the aspirating tube.
Aspirate the sample. When sample aspiration and measurement is complete, the results will automatically appear on the screen
