Analyzers, Point-of-Care, Whole Blood, Lactate

Definition : Point-of-care analyzers dedicated to measuring lactate in whole blood. Some point-of-care lactate analyzers can also measure lactate in plasma, serum, or cerebrospinal fluid. Most of these analyzers use amperometric methods (i.e., electric current is measured through an electrochemical cell while a constant electric potential is applied to immobilized enzyme electrodes). These analyzers are used in critical care units and emergency rooms, for sports medicine and exercise physiology, to determine lactate acidosis, and to assess other disorders such as cerebrovascular accidents and decreased liver perfusion.
