YSI 2950

YSI has earned a reputation as the Gold Standard in bio-analytical instruments with highly accurate sensors and rapid results. 
The key to generating analyte-specific results in 60 seconds or less is YSI's innovative biosensor technology. Using the inherent specificity of enzymes for a single target analyte, YSI's proprietary immobilized enzyme electrodes allow a rapid, accurate and largely interference free measurement to be made in about a minute. The unique fluidics and chamber design resist clogging - even at high cell densities. 
Combining trusted measurement technology with the latest in automated sample handling, the YSI 2950 furthers YSI's legacy of expertise in the following applications: 
  • Critical bioprocess monitoring and fermentation control  
  • Biofuel production and research 
  • Clinical blood chemistry 
  • Food and beverage processing 
Fully modular and with a range of upgrades available, the YSI 2900 and 2950 Series feature an intuitive graphical user interface and a touch screen display, making 2900 series analyzers the easiest to use and most cost effective way to measure the following chemistries in a wide range of matrices: 
  • Glucose 
  • Lactate 
  • Glutamine 
  • Glutamate 
  • Ammonium 
  • Potassium  
  • Xylose 
  • Ethanol 
  • Methanol 
  • Sucrose 
  • Galactose 
  • Lactose 
  • Choline 
  • Glycerol
