Í SED Advanced Rheology Technology iSED’s micro-flow cell captures the critical kinetics of Red Blood Cells in a highly controlled testing environment. Utilizing a very small sample - 100 microliters - the iSED captures the impact of the most critical phase of the early-phase in the phenomenon of RBC sedimentation, the so-called Rouleaux formation, to produce ESR results that are unaffected by the variables commonly associated with traditional ESR testing, such as mixing of the sample and temperature. Most importantly, Í SED results are not affected by the HEMATOCRIT.
revolution not evolution
perfect ESR results in seconds Imagine performing an ESR test that does not require batching, sample splitting, special cuvettes, duplicate primary tubes or manual sample handling of any kind. For the first time ever, ESR testing is a continuous feed, “pass-through” workstation where sample tubes are processed as fast as they arrive and returned immediately for transport to the next laboratory workstation. iSED’s innovative technology ELIMINATES everything that historically made ESR one of your most difficult tests to perform and has transformed it into one of your most simple.
about alcor scientific inc. alcor scientific has dedicated significant research efforts to the improvement of the testing of erythrocyte sedimentation rate and other blood rheology phenomena. esr is “what we do.” working with partners around the world, alcor has consistently led the market with innovative solutions to automate esr testing and reduce the inherent variability of the test. alcor was one of the first esr providers to offer random access, multi-channel systems for high volume laboratories. alcor has taken the lead with dedicated human-based qc products and inter-laboratory data management. all of this past experience has resulted in iSED®, the most advanced esr analyzer ever designed.
one-step operation Simply insert the primary tube and walk away. SED
Ă? drastically changes the way ESR is performed. Once the most cumbersome test to perform, ESR is now the simplest.
No more duplicate tubes! No more sample splitting! No more expensive ESR tubes! No more QNS!
EXCLUSIVE Seditrol® On-Board Quality Control iSED takes the Quality Control of the ESR procedure to the next level. iSED utilizes barcoded, bi-level Seditrol human-based controls that remain on-board and ready for testing 24/7. Auto-QC parameters are user selectable for your convenience and are based on your laboratory’s unique requirements. Auto-QC is fully integrated into all aspects of iSED’s operation. The system tracks QC product stability, QC results and trending data. iSED is even intelligent enough to pause patient samples if QC results are out-of-range.
• 30 Day On-Board Controls • Automatic QC Daily
