Abstract

The ‘aca’ system comprises an automatic clinical analyzer (‘aca’) and a repertoire of analytical methods for performing a variety of discrete chemical analyses of body fluid samples. Introduced in 1968, this was the first system to automate bichromatic clinical analyses. The system employs various differential absorbance techniques, including the bichromatic technique described in this chapter.
