The instrument has a pre-programmed microprocessor which controls assay steps and data processing. Test identification, timing and calibration curve are stored in the barcode of each test cuvette. Once the cuvette label activates the microprocessor, it controls and guides all assay steps and converts the sample absorbance values into concentration units.
The QuikRead go photometer consists of a measurement well, three LEDs and light detectors. The photometer has been designed and calibrated for both photometric and turbidimetric measurements.
Touch screen display
The user interface is based on an easy-to-use touch screen display. It is managed by touch buttons which appear on the screen. It also provides the user with messages and prompts for performing each assay step, gives test results and shows error messages.
