YSI 2950 Biochemisty Analyzer

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
