TCL Analyzer™ is a bench-top analyzer of oxidative stress.
TCL Analyzer™ can be applied both in lipid-soluble and in water-soluble samples.
TCL Analyzer™ Schematic View
A sample of body liquid, typically 50 microliter, is dropped into the device, spread as a bio film, dehydrated, and heated to a predefined temperature (typically 80° centigrade). Emission of photons from the sample biofilm is counted by an optical photo-detector (photomultiplier) for a predefined amount of time (typically 5 minutes).
The calculated parameters—representing the oxidative stress status of the sample and its oxidation susceptibility—are then displayed and stored for further evaluation.
