Definition : Analyzers designed to assess one or more characteristics related to the processes and/or functions of the human or animal body (i.e., physiology). These analyzers are typically used for in vivo determination of a patient's or research animal's characteristics, performing analysis based on physiology rather than chemical evaluations. Dedicated physiologic analyzers are available to assess a variety of body physiology characteristics, including body composition; aural, visual, pulmonary, and neuromuscular functions; metabolic rate; and peristaltic motility. Dedicated animal physiologic analyzers, which should not be used for human tests, are also available.
