The miniiSED® is the newest addition to the ALCOR family of Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) analyzers from ALCOR Scientific. The miniiSED® measurement of ESR is fast, accurate and unaffected by variables associated with traditional methodologies, such as hematocrit. This single position, fully automated ESR analyzer works directly from primary EDTA tubes or BD Microtainer® MAP Microtubes, requires 100 microliters of sample, has an internal barcode reader, and produces stat results in 15 seconds!

This compact fully-automated ESR analyzer utilizes photometric reading to quantify the Rouleaux formation, which is the earliest and most critical phase of sedimentation. miniiSED’s micro-flow cell captures the critical kinetics of RBC in highly controlled testing environment to produce ESR results in 15 seconds. The analyzers results are unaffected by the variables commonly associated with traditional ESR testing methods. Some of these variables include hematocrit, MCV and temperature.

The miniiSED® is the ideal ESR analyzer for emergency rooms, POLs, and small hospital laboratories.

Simply insert the primary EDTA sample tube in the sample entry port and walk away. This ESR analyzer will have results ready for you in 15 seconds instead of 15-60 minutes as when using traditional methods of ESR testing. The miniiSED® has a maximum throughput of 180 tests per hour.

No more graduated pipettes, special cuvettes, duplicate sample tubes, or sample transfer disposables!  No longer generating contaminated waste, miniiSED® offers a decreased cost of ESR testing. In addition using closed-container sampling technology there is no staff exposure to patient sample.

The miniiSED® requires a sample volume of only 100 microliters of whole blood! There is no need to waste time drawing two EDTA tubes or a designated disposable tube. The small sample volume makes the miniiSED® the perfect ESR analyzer for pediatric and geriatric patients. Compatible with BD Microtainer® MAP Microtubes.

The miniiSED® saves you space on the lab bench or in the office. In fact the analyzer takes up about as much room as your office phone.

The miniiSED’s internal barcode reader assures all samples are correctly identified and tracked. The analyzer easily interfaces to LIS systems.
