Clinical Research and Diagnostics
YSI’s glucose and lactate analyzers have been recognized standards for the diagnostic measurement of blood glucose and/or lactate for more than 25 years. YSI invented and marketed the first commercially successful immobilized enzyme electrode for whole blood glucose in 1975. Originally marketed to the hospital stat lab, the YSI 2300 STAT Plus found wide use in diabetes research, exercise physiology, and a variety of related applications. The combination of accuracy, precision and speed for a whole blood glucose measurement remains unmatched in the analytical device market. Today, more than 80% of the glucometer manufacturers use the YSI Analyzers as their blood glucose reference method. The YSI 2300 was ideal not only for diabetes research studies in human and animal models but also for cells in culture.
The YSI 2900D accurately measures glucose levels in whole blood, plasma or serum; lactate levels in whole blood, plasma or cerebrospinal fluid. The YSI 2900D is Designed to not only measure glucose only, lactate only, or both simultaneously. It can be configured to measure several other chemistries, such as Glutamine and Glutamate, Ethanol, Choline, and others.
