Nova Biomedical has introduced an economical, automated chemistry analyzer that it says provides rapid, accurate measurement of glucose and lactate in cell culture and fermentation media. According to the company, the BioProfile Basic 2 Automated Chemistry Analyzer is intended to replace competitive glucose/lactate analyzers with state-of-the-art technology and consistent, reliable glucose and lactate measurement.
BioProfile Basic 2 offers all of the advanced features of Nova BioProfile analyzers with more comprehensive test menus, including:
- Automatic, one-button operation
- Fast, 2-minute analysis
- Automatic 2-point calibration
- Choice of manual, batch, or automated sampling
- OPC-compliant for data transmission and process control
Nova Biomedical literature says the BioProfile Basic 2 is affordably priced to meet the budgetary requirements of institutional and industrial research labs and production facilities alike, and its long-life biosensors and reagent packs minimize maintenance and operating costs. Further, BioProfile Basic 2 is easily field-upgradeable to the BioProfile Basic 4, which adds glutamine and glutamate to the test menu.
