Analyzing

Blood sample is placed in the analyzer

In most cases, an instrument, appropriately called a blood analyzer, analyzes the blood sample. In this picture, the tube of blood is being placed directly into the machine. This particular state-of-the-art analyzer is capable of running batches of samples -- up to 120 samples per hour. In general, chemistry analyzers use serum and/or plasma, and hematology and coagulation analyzers use blood that contains an anticoagulant to prevent clotting.
