Abstract

See full text

An automatic chemical analyzer for the analysis of physiological samples. A scanning monochromatic spectrophotometer may be used to determine the absorbance of the sample under control of a central processing unit. Outputs from one of several ion selective electrodes may also be selected by the system. The information obtained from the measurements is stored in memory or ouputted to output devices. Information about the test parameters may be read from an optical bar code associated with the test kit for the particular chemical analysis.
