Alternate or modified Westergren methods to measure erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) have been adopted by laboratories worldwide. These methods offer reduction in analysis time and improved operator safety.
The iSED Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate analyzer is an alternate automated sedimentation rate analyzer which reports sedimentation rate in mm/hr. The iSED uses photometric rheology to measure the aggregation of red cells during the early phase of erythrocyte sedimentation. After measuring the aggregation directly, the iSED produces an ESR results in mm/hr. The iSED reports results which have been correlated with the Westergren method.
