Make a Better Choice with the YSI Biochemistry Analyser Selection Guide

In 1921 Frank Bunker Gilbreth introduced the world’s first flow chart at the American Society of Mechanical Engineers meeting.

The flow chart soon became indispensable as a tool in many fields including YSI’s Development Team, when creating the Product Selection Guide for the YSI 2900 Series of Analysers.   The reason for this is the sheer variety YSI offer with their 2900, 2900M and 2950 models of Biochemistry Analyser, all thanks to their modular base and their proprietary immobilised enzyme electrode technology.

The YSI 2900 Series is now configurable with up to 3 sensor modules capable of measuring up to six chemistries from Glucose, Glutamine, Glutamate, Lactate, Xylose, Ethanol, Methanol, Sucrose, Galactose, Lactose, Choline, Glycerol and Hydrogen Peroxide. Plus additional ISE measurements of Potassium and Ammonium are possible.

This is a lot of choice, which is terrific for the scientist, but as some chemistries have mandatory partner chemistries, while other chemistries must be run alone, a guide is very useful and this is what YSI have provided.

The YSI Biochemistry Analyser Selection Guide has been designed to ensure that you choose exactly the right combination of chemistries and modules for your application needs. The guide starts with the Chemistry Compatibility Chart that informs you about the three different classes of chemistry combinations possible: (1) The chemistries that can be run with other named chemistries, (2) The chemistries that MUST be run with another chemistry and (3) chemistries that MUST be run alone.

YSI’s informative flow chart, based on an initial decision of whether you need to measure ammonium and potassium, takes you through a series of ‘yes’ and ‘no’ choices to select the instrument and module combination that you require.

For example, if you don’t want to measure ammonium or potassium and you want to measure 2 chemistries, with no plans to measure more, but you do want to monitor or control a bioreactor, then the YSI 2900M is your ideal instrument.
