Analysers

GL5

The GL5 analyser can be used in Clinical Research applications for a range of our direct enzymatic-rate chemistries in one compact instrument the offers excellent reproducibility and speed.

For a relatively small additional capital cost over the Analox range of single parameter analysers the GL5 comes pre-programed for Glucose, Lactate, Cholesterol and Alcohol plus one spare channel which can be used to run other Analox single-point-calibration oxidase chemistries.

Application Areas

  • Diabetes monitoring & research
  • Clinical pathology
  • Alcoholism research
  • Sport science/Exercise physiology
  • Routine biochemistry

Operation

After calibration with a standard of the selected metabolite, the single injection of sample is all that is needed to obtain a result and prepare the analyser for the next analysis.

Sample injection via an accurate positive displacement pipette triggers the complete analytical cycle and a hard-copy result is printed within 20 seconds.

Analytical Perfomance

  Precision Accuracy (Method Comparisons) Linearity
Glucose C.V. of 1.0% @ 5 mmol/L (plasma) Method comparison vs Hexokinase y (Analox) = 0.985x - 0.14 mmol/L, r = 0.999, n = 156 30.0 mmol/L (540 mg/dl) for 10 µl samples
Lactate C.V. of 2% @ 2.5 mmol/L Method comparison for whole blood vs YSI 23L: y (Analox) = 0.98x + 0.055 mmol/L, r = 0.9991, n = 56 10 mmol/L (ca. 90 mg/dl) for 7 µl samples
Alcohol C.V. of 2.5% @18.5 mmol/L (ca. 85 mg/dl; whole blood) Method comparison for whole blood (neutralized PCA extract) vs GC: y (Analox) = 1.039x + 0.28 mmol/L, r = 0.991, n = 27 43.0 mmol/L (ca. 200 mg/dl) for 5 µl samples
