Greensboro, NC (April 15, 2022)Carolina Liquid Chemistries Corp. now offers photometric chloride, potassium, and sodium electrolyte blood test kits for use on the CLC Family of clinical chemistry analyzers: the CLC6410, CLC1600, and CLC800. These test kits are cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and categorized under the Clinical Laboratories Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA). Chloride, potassium, and sodium are part of comprehensive biochemistry testing and are critical tests. Medical laboratories traditionally use Ion Selective Electrodes (ISE) for electrolyte testing. These laboratories can now utilize either ISE or a moderate complexity photometric method. The ability of these instruments to test for electrolytes using either ISE or photometric method gives medical testing facilities such as hospitals, reference laboratories, and large group practices additional options at a time of uncertainty in the worldwide supply chain.

“These photometric chloride, potassium, and sodium test kits give medical laboratories another way to perform critical electrolyte testing on the same instrument,” says Philip Shugart, CEO of CLC. “They can now perform these electrolyte tests using the same photometric process they use for other biochemistry tests.”
