Bioprocessing - YSI analyzers measure important nutrients like glucose, glutamine, and methanol; and can monitor the level of potentially harmful byproducts like lactate and ammonium. Biopharma uses YSI rapid electrode-based measurements to both monitor and control processes.
Clinical Research and Diagnostics - YSI analyzers measure glucose in blood, plasma, and serum; and lactate in blood, plasma, and cerebrospinal fluid. The YSI 2300 STAT Plus is an in vitro diagnostic device. It is used extensively for glucose measurement in diabetes research and glucometer manufacturing settings; and for lactate in exercise physiology and athlete training programs.
Food & Beverage - YSI analyzers measure selected key ingredients and byproducts in process settings and in quality assurance laboratories. Among the analytes are glucose, sucrose, lactose, starch, choline, glutamate and ethanol. In food spoilage applications lactate and ethanol levels provide quantitative evidence of unwanted microbes.
