YSI is proud to launch its latest Biochemistry Analyser, the YSI 2900, Used for making accurate measurements in only one minute of: Glucose, Lactate, Glutamine, Glutamate, Xylose, Ethanol, Methanol, Sucrose, Galactose, Lactose, Choline and Hydrogen Peroxide.


The 2900 has many technical innovations and benefits: no turntable required; 1 to 96 position auto sampler; Clogging resistant; multi-language touch screen and many more. Food applications include processing and quality assurance of potatoes; potato snacks; preserves; sugar and fruit.

The 2900 Analyser is Light and slim line, with a small footprint, and its modular design will allow for future expansion of chemistries. Currently it will measure two compatible chemistries simultaneously. Its user-friendly, multi-language touch screen comes with comprehensive help and training videos, making it easy to learn initially and useful for future staff turnover or retraining. Do it yourself maintenance is also facilitated with the help of videos, meaning less down time.

The 2900 is economical to buy and run – it does not require reagent packs, just the reagents the user needs for testing. There is no additional cost of buying a separate turntable, as it has an integrated auto sampler, which will handle from 1 to 96 positions, as well as a separate station for one-off samples. A wide variety of vials, tubes and plates may be used, allowing for smaller sample size 5 – 65 uL.

The 2900’s unique chamber design, with short and wide aspiration path, makes it extremely resistant to clogging, even with samples that have a high dissolved solids content,

Flexible data handling and connectivity allows the easy download of data to memory stick, PC or network via USB, Ethernet or RS232 ports.

If you would like to find out more about the new YSI 2900 or arrange for a demonstration, please call the UK office on +44 (0)1252 819844 or contact
