LM5 Lactate Analyser

The LM5 measures lactate in both Clinical Research and Industrial, Commercial & Biotechnology applications

Application Areas

  • Clinical pathology
  • Sport science/Exercise physiology
  • Biotechnology and pharmaceutical analyses
  • Food & beverage analyses


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 25 seconds.
