  • Online QC Data Management and peer data 

iSED uses advanced Rheology Technology. It captures the impact of the most critical phase of the early-phase in the phenomenon of RBC sedimentation, the so-called Rouleaux formation. This is the critical phase of the ESR because the size of the red blood cell aggregates is directly proportional to the ESR values which increase according to the presence and intensity of inflammation. The technical innovation of the iSED consists of measuring directly the aggregation of the red blood cells while the traditional ESR methodologies measure indirectly the aggregation of the red blood cells.
iSED has a 3 minute mix cycle as required by CLSI and a unique patented technology that gives an ultrasonic pulse to break apart the blood cells before testing after the sample is mixed.
  • iSED aspirates the sample and places it in a temperature controlled reading cell where it receives an ultrasonic burst to ensure a “perfect” disaggregation of the red blood cells. Then the iSED measures the aggregation of the cells by taking 500 reading of the complete aggregation reaction profile.
  • iSED measures the first portion of what the Westergren method measures and this is the cause of the final Westergren result.
  • The algorithm extrapolates what is going to happen in 60 minutes like Westergren.

  • Photometrical rheoscope

General Product Information
Q. What is the test time after mixing?
A. 20 seconds for blood samples and control solutions.
Q.How much sample is used in testing?
A.100 microliters for blood and controls (500 microliters of dead volume is required).
Q. What is the minimum sample volume?
A.500 microliters.
Q.What size EDTA tubes are required?
A.13X75 mm or 13X72 mm.
Q.How long is the mix time?
A.iSED mixes samples for 3 minutes (180 rotations) before testing as recommended in the CLSI guidelines.
Q.How many samples can run at the same time?
A.iSED has a 20-position sample wheel with continuous feed that accommodates single or multiple samples in whatever order they are received. An open position is always available.
Q.What is the linear range? How does it compare to the competition?
A.iSED range is 0 to 130. 
Q.If new samples are placed after testing has started for initial samples does the mix or test time change for the samples that are already in progress?
A. iSED is intuitive and continues testing for samples that are in process. All samples only go through a 3 minute mix and 20 second test time.
