Analyzers, Laboratory, Hematology, Coagulation, Manual
Definition : Laboratory blood coagulation analyzers that require the human manipulative effort (e.g., manual insertion of reagents and samples) in all the steps of each test; most analyzers require previous centrifugation of the sample to obtain plasma samples. These analyzers include an incubation cuvette or test tube, a heating block, a manual pipette, timing devices, and a clot formation detector (e.g., photometric); some analyzers may be connected to printers, recorders, and/or data-processing devices. Manual blood coagulation analyzers are used as primary instrumentation for small volume tests or as backups for automated or semiautomated coagulation analyzers.
