Lab accurate glucose and lactate measurement in one test

The Biosen series of glucose analyzers include three different models and are a familiar brand name in laboratories and diabetes clinics.

Biosen analyzers can be manufactured as single channel glucose systems or as dual channel systems that can measure lactate at the same time.

Biosen uses a special chip sensor technology to deliver fast measurements with a high degree of  accuracy at a low cost per test. Due to the long life of the sensor chip the system requires little maintenance, features such as the touch screen and large memory only add to the Biosen analyzer’s user-friendliness.

All Biosen analyzers are supplied with an interface to connect to hospital or lab information systems (LIS). An integrated barcode reader and printer are also available with most configurations.

Biosen can test blood, plasma or serum to provide glucose and lactate values with excellent precision (less than 2% CV) over a wide measurement range.

“My impessions on how easy Biosen is to work with are based on over 5 years experience with 2 devices – Biosen_C-line Clinic and Biosen GP+. Low sample volume, reliable calibration, very convenient to work with touch screen and stand-by mode are only some of the advantages for our daily routine. In my opinion Biosen_C-line devices are a good solution for every clinical laboratory”

Head of Clinical Laboratory MBAL “Sveta Petka Bulgarska”

“Biosen devices are very easy to work with. They can be used everywhere you need them in the hospital –compact and easy to re-locate in the wards. Long-life chip sensors, quick and reliable results”
