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.
Medical Research - YSI analyzers measure glucose and lactate in blood, plasma, serum and cerebrospinal fluid. YSI 2900 Series Analyzers are 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.
