Point of Care Testing

Point of care testing allows medical staff to perform real-time testing in the doctor’s office or at home. This contrasts with traditional medical laboratory testing that needs to be shipped out to a central testing center and take days to get results. Bringing testing and diagnosing closer to the patient is all an effort to improve healthcare. 

Temperature stability within the point of care testing device is the key to achieve reliable results. Because conductivity varies when blood temperature changes, blood sample’s temperature must be accurately controlled.

Heating and Cooling for Liquid Chromatography Systems

Introduction

High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is a technique used for analysis of liquid mixtures by separating, identifying, and quantifying their constituent components. Liquid chromatography normally operates with smaller amounts of material and seeks to measure the relative proportions of analytes in a mixture. R&D laboratories in the pharmaceutical, food science and oil industries use these instruments for product development or reverse engineering.

Thermoelectric Cooler Assemblies for Reagent Storage

Introduction

Maintaining a temperature well below ambient, and monitoring this temperature carefully, are critical to extending the shelf life of reagents used for in vitro diagnostics. Most reagents require refrigeration and would spoil within hours at room temperatures. Reagents can degrade and become contaminated by microbial growth, which can affect test integrity results. Reagents can also be negatively impacted if they undergo too many freeze and thaw cycles.

Cooling for Centrifuges

A centrifuge is a laboratory device using centrifugal force to separate liquid mixtures. To separate fluids, the centrifuge spins samples at a fast rate, resulting in heavy components to migrate away from the center axis and lighter components to migrate towards the axis. Centrifuge devices are widely used tools in food processing and medical research for cellular, genetic and protein analysis. When designing laboratory and medical centrifuges, several design challenges must be considered. 

Peltier Cooling for Refrigerated Centrifuges

 

Introduction

Centrifugation is a process that separates mixtures through centrifugal force. Centrifuges are commonly used in food processing and medical research for protein, genetic and cellular analysis. In medical laboratory settings, centrifugation involves spinning medical samples at a fast rate to filter or concentrate substances based on differing densities. Dense components migrate away from the center axis, while less dense components migrate towards the axis.
