Testing the Roche Cedex Bio Systems
The Cedex Bio Analyzer and recently launched Cedex Bio HT Analyzer were developed to improve in-process monitoring during fermentation. The Cedex Bio HT Analyzer, designed for high-throughput applications in process development, performs up to 320 tests per hour. Cedex Bio HT Analyzer results are perfectly consistent with results produced by Cedex Bio Analyzer. The technology using proven Roche instrumentation platforms excels with increased sensitivity and reproducibility in expanded measurement ranges, compared to currently used instruments (Table).
An automated dilution capability extends the measurement ranges and significantly reduces operator-caused variability. No manual dilution is required before applying samples to Cedex Bio Analyzers. A variety of photometric assays (e.g., LDH [lactate dehydrogenase], IgG [immunoglobulin]) and ion selective electrodes (e.g., sodium, potassium) are combined in one instrument and allow flexible test ordering for individual samples.
