Aberystwyth University: Why we bought the Randox RX daytona+

Aberystwyth University: Why we bought the Randox daytona +The first quarter of 2014 has seen Aberystwyth University purchase and install Randox’s RX daytona+ clinical chemistry analyser. Researcher Dr Kenton Hart discusses his research interest along with how the daytona+ suited the laboratories requirements.

Tell us a bit about your research

The Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences at Aberystwyth University is focused on improving animal performance and reducing the impact of animal agriculture on greenhouse gas emissions. Our work is linking dietary manipulation, via the use of additives or novel crops, to metabolic processes.

Our work is funded by BBSRC, Welsh Assembly Government, European Grants and Commercial clients.

Why were you looking for a new system?

As more of our routine studies are focused on metabolic and biochemical processes it has become increasingly more interesting and essential to be able to analyse blood metabolites of veterinary interest. Our work is linking dietary manipulation, via the use of additives or novel crops, to metabolic processes.

The need to progress our analytical capability is always at the forefront of planning and we are pleased to have purchased a daytona+.

What made you choose the daytona+?

The daytona+ suited our laboratory due to its ability to run multiple chemistries on 40 samples simultaneously.

Given the wide choice of available chemistries and the option to create our own tests using open channels the daytona plus met all our requirements.

How will you use the daytona+?

We are progressing with our own method of validation for the daytona plus based on non-available chemistries and hope to be able to inform Randox of our achievement.

Line

The Randox RX daytona+ is a fully automated, random access, benchtop analyser. Its comprehensive and flexible test menu allows the consolidation of a wide range of routine and esoteric tests including routinely run chemistries, specific proteins, veterinary tests, therapeutic drugs and drugs of abuse on one easy to use platform.  For more information, please visit: www.randox.com/rx-daytonaplus or email: marketing:randox.com.
