The One Beam with it’s ease of use and it’s remarkable precision, gives the precise information on bilirubin levels and support which the Doctors need. The One Beam allows for a rapid photo-metric analysis of the bilirubin total in the serum (totals of the conjugated and non-conjugated) using a capillary tube as an optical cell.
The bilirubin concentration is determined with a photo-metric measurement at the 455nm and 575nm wavelengths: the first wave length gives important information on the quantity of bilirubin, the second gives an indication of the presence of hae-moglobin, the substance which interferes with accurate measurement of the bilirubin level. Algorithmic mathematical calculation, the One Beam is capable of eliminating the haemoglobin interference factor allowing for accurate results to be of the bilirubin concentration level in the blood. The results are immediately displayed on the One Beam’s LCD screen in mg/100ml, or alternatively in micro-moli per litre.
The One Beam’s important innovation with respect to previous Ginevri models is the use of a single optical beam which illuminates the sample at one single point, achieved using a special system of automatic filters.
