The technical innovation of the iSED® fully-automated ESR analyzer consists of directly measuring the intensity of the red cell aggregation which is responsible for Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR).
Unlike traditional ESR methodologies that measure the aggregation of the red blood cells indirectly, the iSED measures it directly and expresses the values in mm/hr.
Seditrol® is a bi-level quality control, manufactured from human blood used to monitor the performance of erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) procedures. Seditrol® is used to monitor the performance of the laboratorys analyzer and the quality of the technique, as well as the effect environmental factors such as temperature, bench top vibration and sample suitability may have on the quality of the test results.
Seditrol® is used in the same manner as the patient sample.
No refrigeration required (storage at room temperature between 18°C-30°C)
