clinical chemistry

We have over 30 years of experience in this segment
Clinical chemistry is a solid, internationally acknowledged diagnostical method which allows highly quantitative detection of various components in liquids of human origin, e.g. whole blood, serum, urine and spinal fluids. The discipline started in the late 19th century with colorimetric chemical reaction tests and developed to become the nowadays most important discipline in the market of in-vitro diagnostics (IVD). Measured concentration results are analyzed by healthcare professionals for diagnosis of physiological condition of the tested patient.
Typical clinical chemistry tests include standard methods to determine blood glucose (testing for the risk of diabetes or hypoglycemia), electrolytes (e.g. indication of certain metabolic and kidney disorders), enzymes (assessment of specific organ function or damage), hormones (gland function check), lipids (evaluation of heart and liver disease), proteins (e.g. assessment of metabolic or nutritional disorder), and many more.
BIT supports clients in automating a manual clinical chemistry process resulting in higher throughput, standardized procedures, and reliable results at competitive prices.
