Abstract

See full text

The automatic analyzer relating to the invention is characterized in that since drive and control of the automatic analyzer and storage of the measuring data are realizable on the IC card, operability of such kind of automatic analyzer is sharply simplified, the system can be miniaturized substantially to a low cost, moreover, in case the automatic analyzer gets damaged, portion and cause of the damage can be found easily and quickly.
