1 System Description
1.1 Overview
The system is a fully-automated and computer-controlled chemistry analyzer
designed for in vitro quantitative determination of clinical chemistries in serum,
plasma, urine and CSF (Cerebrospinal fluid) samples. The Chemistry Analyzer
consists of the analyzing unit (analyzer) and operation unit.

Figure 1-1 Analyzing Unit and Operation Unit

1 System Description 1-1


1.2 System Components
The system has a throughput of 400 tests/hour for single- or double-reagent analysis.
Each working period is equivalent to 9 seconds. Structurally, the system realizes the
three-disk + three-probe + two-mixer scheme, which means one reaction disk, one
sample disk, one reagent disk, two reagent probes, one sample probe, one sample
mixer and one reagent mixer. The two reagent probes aspirate and dispense R1 and
R2, and the two mixers stir S(sample) and R2.The photometric system, which is
composed of gratings and diode array, perform photometric measurement to the
reaction cuvettes that hold sample/reagent mixture. When analysis is finished, the
wash unit cleans the reaction cuvettes during 8 phases.

1.3 Functions
The general working procedure of the system is as follows:

1. All mechanical units are initialized.

2. The reaction cuvettes are washed during 8 phases. After phase 6, water blank
is analyzed automatically.

3. The reagent disk rotates to R1 aspirate position, and R1 probe aspirates


reagent from a bottle on the reagent disk.

4. When washed for 8 phases, the reaction cuvettes are carried to the reagent
dispense position, and the R1 probe rotates to the reaction disk and dispenses
the reagent to a cuvette.

5. R1 is incubated in reaction cuvette for several periods.

6. The sample disk rotates to the sample aspirate position, and the sample probe
aspirates designated amount of sample from specified sample tube.

7. The reaction cuvette with R1 dispensed rotates to the sample dispense


position, and the sample probe dispenses the sample in the reaction cuvette.

8. With sample dispensed, the reaction cuvette rotates to sample mixing position
for stirring.

9. In case of double-reagent tests, when sample is dispensed, the reagent disk


rotates to the R2 aspirate position, and the R2 probe aspirates reagent from
the specified bottle on the reagent disk.

1 System Description 1-3


10. The reaction disk with sample dispensed rotates to the R2 dispensing position,
and the R2 probe dispenses the reagent to a reaction cuvette.

11. With R2 dispensed, the reaction cuvette is carried to the reagent mixing
position for stirring.

12. During each period, the reaction cuvette receives photometric measurement
(absorbance reading taking) when passing by the photometric unit.

13. Triple-/quadruple-reagent analysis is similar to single-/double-reagent analysis


stated above. As for triple- or quadruple-reagent tests, the reaction cuvette
with R2 dispensed will not be washed when passing by the wash unit.

14. The reaction cuvettes in which reaction is finished are washed when passing
by the wash unit.

3.2.5 Connecting Water Unit(Optional)


If the user employs a water unit to supply water to the analyzer, an adapter is
required to connect the irregular outlet tubing of the water unit to the inlet filter (or
water supply module) of the analyzer.

There are three types of outlet tubing for the water unit: 1/4 tubing, 1/3 tubing
and 1/2 tubing. All of these three tubings are made from hard materials.

The Chemistry Analyzer provides three types of adapters, which include M22,
M32 and M42. The three adapters are supplied in 2 respectively together with
two pairs of big and small stoppers.

4.1 Sample/Reagent Probe Unit

4.1.1 Introduction
The sample/reagent probe unit consists of the sample probe, R1 probe and R2 probe
assemblies, which are often called Three-probe Assembly.

The sample probe assembly includes a sample probe, which aspirates sample from
the sample tube and then dispenses it into reaction cuvette. The R1/R2 probe
assembly includes R1 probe and R2 probe, which respectively aspirate R1/R3 and
R2/R4 and then dispense them into reaction cuvettes.

Generally, all of the three probes are capable of detecting liquid level and
obstructions in the horizontal and vertical directions.

Additionally, the probes are also able to limit their mechanical motions or lock
themselves when power failure occurs.

The general workflow of the Three-probe Assembly is as follows:

1. Sample probe assembly: Wash wellSample aspirate positionSample


dispense position on reaction disk/ISE sample entry port;

2. Reagent probe assembly: Wash wellReagent aspirate positionReagent


dispense position on reaction disk.

4.1.2 Components and Structure


The Three-probe Assembly consists of the drive part and the probe arms. See Figure
4-1.

4 Units and Modules 4-1


The drive part supports the probe arm and drives the arm to move vertically or
horizontally, so that the sample probe and reagent probes move among different
positions.

The drive part includes the horizontal movement structure and vertical movement
structure. Both structures have stepper motors, synchronous belt wheel and
synchronous belt. Integrated with a bracket, the two structures finally drive vertically
or horizontally the probe arm via the 12 shaft.

The probe arms are composed of the sample/reagent probes, liquid level detection
board, arm cover, arm base, 130 arm, etc, which are integrated by the arm base and
130 arm.

Besides the structural difference, the three probe assemblies differ from each other
in the horizontal motor bracket and also the horizontal and vertical sensors. See

4.5 Mixer Unit

4.5.1 Introduction
The mixer unit includes the sample mixer assembly and reagent mixer assembly.

Both mixer assemblies are equipped with a mixer, which is used to stir the liquid in
reaction cuvette.

Additionally, the mixers are also able to limit their mechanical motions or lock
themselves when power failure occurs.

Working positions of the two mixer assemblies: wash well reaction disk.

4.5.2 Components and Structure


Due to different functions and movement timing, the two mixer assemblies differ from
each other in the arm structure, 12 shaft, sensor stop plate, limit structure,
horizontal motor bracket, and sensor.

The mixer assembly consists of the drive part and the mixer arm. See Figure 4-33.

The drive part supports the mixer arm and drives the arm to move vertically or
horizontally, so that the mixers move among different positions.

The drive part includes the horizontal movement structure and vertical movement
structure. Both structures have stepper motors, synchronous belt wheel and
synchronous belt. Integrated with a bracket, the two structures finally drive vertically
or horizontally the mixer arm via 12 shaft.

The mixer arm consists of a mixer, motor, enclosure, etc, which are integrated by the
arm base.

The main difference between the two mixer assemblies is the locations of the stop
collars on the horizontal motor brackets. See Figure 4-34.

4.6 Photometric Unit

4.6.1 Introduction
Chemistry analyzer is a typical precision instrument which features in optics,
mechanics, electronics and logarithm. The spectrophotometer is one of the key
components of the instrument and determines directly the precision and accuracy of
measurement by the system.

The system employs the reversed optics of holographic concave flat-field gratings.
The holographic concave flat-field gratings are used for optical dispersion and
imaging. It can not only simplify the optical design to compact the optical structure,
but also eliminate the stray light. A combined light passing through the entrance slit
projects on the PDA(Photodiode Array) via the concave flat-field gratings. One or
multiple light-activated elements on different positions receive the monochromatic
light at certain wavelength. During operation, the photometric system controlled by
the computer receives the electric signals produced by the light-activated elements
of corresponding wavelength and then converts them into absorbance. In case the
spectrum is defined, the absorbance at multiple wavelengths can be calculated
quickly.

FWHM(full wave at half maximum): 8nm2nm
Wavelength accuracy: 2nm

we conclude that the difference between the maximum and minimum
absorbance is no greater than 0.01A.
We employ the concave flat-field gratings for optics and the photodiode array to
receive light signals.

4.6.2 Components and Structure


The system applies the holographic concave flat-field gratings and PDA(Photodiode
Array) for photometric measurement. See the figure below. The front lens converges
the light beam sent from the tungsten-halogen lamp to the reaction cuvette via the
fiber bundle. The light beam passes through the reaction cuvette and then converges
at the entrance slit via the lens group 2. The gratings divide the light beam from the
entrance slit and then converge them to the slit array. Finally the PDA behind the slit
array converts the light signals into electric signals and then outputs them.

4.6.3 Adjustment of Photometer


4.6.3.1 Adjusting Photoelectric Waves and Collecting Position
 Connecting an oscillograph:

Photoelectric collecting position can be determined by analog signals and AD start


signals that are collected using an oscillograph. Therefore, the probe of the
oscillograph should be connected to the specified signal test point.

Open the shielding box of AD collection board (See Chapter 6), connect two probes
of the oscillograph to the AD start signal(RC and GND) and analog signal of channel
1(VG1-VG12), then connect the earth terminal to the ground. (Only the earth
terminal of one probe should be connected to the ground.)The channels, wavelength
and test points are listed in the following table.

The voltage at the 12 wavelengths before AD conversion is tested using a multimeter.


The probes of the oscillograph should be connected as follows. TP12(AGND) is the
reference point.

Setting up the oscillograph:

The two probes of the oscillograph can be any of the 4 channels and now supposed
to be channel 1 and 2, which should be configured to make the oscillograph qualified
for photoelectric test.

The peak value of a normal signal is 5V. Both channel 1 and 2 should be adjusted to
2V, so that the photoelectric wave can be observed easily. Ensure the coupling mode
of the two channels is DC. Set up proper sampling interval to get waves easily. Set
the sampling mode to AUTO. See the figure below:

4.6.3.2 Adjusting Lamp Brightness and Photoelectric Collecting


Position
1. Enter the Reaction Disk Unit screen of the system test and maintenance
software (See Chapter 9), select Reset Reaction Disk, and then turn on the lamp.
See the figure below.

2. Use the multimeter to check if the voltage at the light source assembly terminal is
within 11.8-12.0V(lamp brightness is approximately within 233-237). If not, select the
Parameter tab and then select Reaction Disk Unit in the Unit field, adjust the lamp
brightness until satisfied. (The greater the parameter, the higher the voltage) After
adjusting the parameters, turn off the lamp and then turn it on so that you can get
adjusted voltage.

4 Units and Modules 4-35


Figure 4-42 Adjusting Light Source Brightness

3. Add 180l water to cuvettes No.55-60 to ensure flat waves.

4. First test the waves at 340nm, set up the Circles to 1 and (cuvette)Position to 1,
and then select the Rotate and Measure button.

Figure 4-43 Reaction disk rotates and measures

5. When the oscillograph displays the complete waves circularly, press STOP on the
oscillograph. The waves are frozen and stop going.

6. Find the waves for the five cuvettes in which water is dispensed. (In order to find
the waves easily, water should be dispensed to cuvettes No.55-60). Generally, the
five waves of the cuvettes with water are higher and flatter than those of other
cuvettes.

If the waves are flat, the yellow waves refer to AD start signals (In a bundle of
collected signals, the rightmost means 340nm and the leftmost means 800nm), and
the red waves refer to the photoelectric analog signals.

4-36 4 Units and Modules


Figure 4-44 Photoelectric wave 2

Check if the AD start signal at 340nm is in the middle of the photoelectric analog
signal (See the figure below). If yes, the photoelectric collecting position is correct.

Figure 4-45 Photoelectric wave 3

If the AD start signal at 340nm is in the decreasing part of the photoelectric analog
signal instead of its middle (See the figure below), the photoelectric collecting
position is not correct and must be adjusted by moving the coder sensor of the
reaction disk left or right.

4 Units and Modules 4-37


After the 340nm channel is adjusted, connect the probe 2 to VG12 of channel 12,
check the waves and collecting position of 800nm in the same way as 340nm. Make
sure that all AD start signals are in the flat part of the photoelectric analog signals.

Check if the waves of all channels are flat according to the step mentioned above. If
not, the pre-amplification board may go wrong and the optical assembly should be
replaced.

Figure 4-46 Abnormal waves

4.6.3.3 Adjusting Signal Gain of Photoelectric Unit


The purpose of adjusting signal gain is to adjust the water blank to a proper value
when the light is too strong.

Precautions for signal gain adjustment:

1. The lower limit of the light intensity alarm is calculated by the gain parameter of
340nm. The lower limit value is increased based on the gain increasement, which
causing the Weak light alarm cannot be released effectively by adjusting the gain.
(The calculated threshold value can be queried through Maintenance  System
Maintenance  Light Source Setup.)

2. The signal gain of the photoelectric unit has been configured properly before the
analyzer leaves the factory. When an alarm occurs indicating weak light, replace the
lamp instead of adjusting the signal gain. After replacing the lamp, check the new
lamp by executing Cuvette/Lamp Check on the Daily Maint. page of the operating
software.

Steps:

NOTE
Before testing the photoelectric gain, make sure that the lamp has
been on for at least 5 minutes; otherwise the lamp is not steady.

4-38 4 Units and Modules


1 Select the Photoelectric Unit tab of the Test and Maintenance Software, check if
the AD values for water blank of cuvettes No.55-64 are greater than 63000.

2 If the AD value exceeds the range, select the Parameter tab and then select Main
Unit in the Unit field, select Inquire to view the gain parameters of each channel
(When the gain parameter increases, the corresponding AD value will decrease),
adjust the water blank AD value of each channel within 47000-49000.

4.6.4 Replacing Optical Assembly


If the optical assembly can no longer work as promised, perform the following
steps to replace it:

1. Remove the upper and front panels of the analyzer.

2. Remove the reaction disk.

3. Remove the upper plate of the AD housing; unplug the pre-amplification-AD


collection cable from the AD collection board, and unplug the parallel port
connector from the bottom of the AD housing assembly; remove the AD
housing assembly.

4. Remove the back cover; use a hex wrench to loosen the M3 retaining screw
that fixes the fiber bundle on the light source assembly; then unplug the fiber
bundle.

5. Loosen the three screws that fix the heat chamber; raise the heat chamber
with one hand and lift up the optical assembly with the other hand so that the
front lens assembly is disconnected from the heat chamber.

6. Install the new optical assembly following the above steps reversely.

Precautions:

1. Cap the fiber bundle terminal that is removed.

2. After removing the old optical assembly, place it in the installation package
together with the fiber bundle, and then bring the package back or send it to our
company for servicing.

4.7 Wash Unit

4.7.1 Introduction
In order to use the reaction cuvettes repeatedly, the system is integrated with the
wash unit, which is used to:

Wash reaction cuvettes;


Drain the waste liquid in reaction cuvettes;
To prime and empty the fluidic tubing;
To preheat wash solution and deionized water.

4 Units and Modules 4-39


4.7.2 Functions
A reaction cuvette containing analyzed liquid passes successively the washing
positions 1-8. The wash unit includes 8 aspirate probes (Pd1-Pd8) and 8 dispense
probes(Pc1-Pc8), which are respectively located above positions 1-8.During
washing process, the corresponding solenoid valve is turned on before the wash
probes lower down, and then the dispense probes dispense wash solution in
corresponding cuvettes while lowering down. During the dispensing process, the
dispense probes also act as the overflow probes. Then the corresponding solenoid
valve is turned on and the waste liquid is discharged into the high-/low-concentration
waste tanks.

The following figure shows the structure of the wash unit and the detailed procedure
for washing cuvettes.

Figure 4-47 Structure and work flow of wash unit

The cuvette washing process is introduced below.

1. When the cuvette containing analyzed liquid reaches position 1, the reaction
liquid is aspirated by Pd1, and then Pc1 dispenses wash solution to the cuvette.

2. In the next period, the cuvette is carried to position 2. Pd2 aspirates the wash
solution, and then Pc2 dispenses wash solution to the cuvette.

3. In the third period, the cuvette is carried to position 3. Pd3 aspirates the wash
solution, and then Pc3 dispenses deionized water to the cuvette.

4. In the fourth period, Pd4 aspirates the deionized water, and then Pc4 dispenses
deionized water in the cuvette.

5. In the fifth and sixth periods, step 4 is repeated. When Pc6 dispenses wash
solution in the sixth period, the reaction disk rotates, carrying the cuvette to the
lamp site for photometric measurement. Whether the cuvette is washed clean is
determined by the measuring result(water blank).

6. In the seventh period, Pd7 aspirates the deionized water. This operation is
repeated in the eighth period. Pd7 and Pd8 are equipped respectively with a
wipe block on their ends. A very small space exists between the inside cuvette
and the wipe block, therefore, the water drop on the cuvette wall can be wiped

4-40 4 Units and Modules


so that the cuvette is dried.

7. The solenoid valve is turned on to drain the high-/low-concentration waste liquid.

4.7.3 Structure and Installation


General structure of the wash unit

The wash unit is composed of wash probes, wash probe driver and collecting
board. The wash probes are fixed on the wash probes driver via retaining srews.

5 Hydropneumatic
System

5.1 Introduction
1. The fluidic system of system includes the sampling system and washing system.

2. The sampling system is equipped with three probes, two mixers and three
syringes. The sample syringe is 100l and the two reagent syringes are 500l.

3. The inside and outside of the three probes and the outside of the two mixers are
washed via pressure driving. The inside of the three probes are cleaned with
deionized water.

4. Wash well: Inner diameter of waste tubing is 0.5. There are five wash wells and
7 normal waste liquids, which include reagent refrigeration waste, reaction disk
overflow waste, etc.

5. The reaction cuvettes are washed in 8 phases: 1) Phase 1-2: Cuvette is washed
with wash solution; 2) Phase 3-6: Cuvette is washed with deionized water; 3)
Phase 7-8: Cuvette is dried and wiped. During washing process, the wash
solution and deionized water are dispensed into cuvettes by pressure, and the
waste liquids are removed and drained by vacuum.

6. Water supply: An external water supply module or water unit is provided to


supply water. Therefore, requirements of water pressure and flow are imposed
on the water supply device.

7. Waste: Plastic hollow tubing is employed to collect the waste liquid. The waste
tubing should be installed at certain height so that the waste liquid can be
drained by gravity. Waste drainage: Low-concentration waste is drained to the
sewer using the waste pump; while high-concentration waste is drained to an

5 Hydropneumatic System 5-1


external high-concentration waste bucket that is equipped with a liquid level
sensor.

8. High-concentration waste is produced during Phase 1-3 for cuvette washing.

9. Drive source: The reaction cuvettes are washed automatically by air pump
driving.

10. The reaction cuvettes are washed with wash solution A and B, which are diluted
automatically.

11. The system uses three types of compressed air: 25psig (for draining waste
liquid), 10psig (for supplying water and wash solution), and 5psig (for supplying
concentrated wash solution). The waste liquids are aspirated and drained by
vacuum within -50k--86kPa (15-25inHg).

12. Before washing cuvettes, the deionized water and diluted wash solution A/B are
preheated to 30-37.

13. A separate solenoid valve is provided to wash the outside and inside of three
probes and the outside of the two mixers.

14. Wash solution diluting is performed using a buffer. When the low-concentration
waste is used out, the liquid level sensor alarms. When the system receives the
alarm signals, it turns on successively the valve for driving concentrated wash
solution, valve for driving concentrated wash solution B and valve for controlling
deionized water. Then the wash solution is diluted according to the dilution ratio
that has been configured.

15. The wash unit is able to divides the wash solution. During washing, the
deionized water is preheated and divided into 4 parts and then dispensed into
reaction cuvettes.

16. The pneumatic module is located on lower right of the analyzer in the form of
drawer, which can be pulled out for 500mm.

5.9 Water Supply Module(optional)
The water supply module pressurizes the water source and enables the
deionized water to enter into the analyzer easily.

Figure 5-13 Schematic diagram of water supply module

As shown in the figure above, the water supply module consists of five
components: 1. power supply; 2. diaphragm pump; 3. pressure switch; 4. inlet
valve(inside analyzer); 5. water tank inside of analyzer.

The internal water tank pressurizes water and supplies it to the wash unit of the
analyzer. Moreover, the water tank possesses liquid level detection device to
detect the water in it. When the water in the water tank is run out, the detection
device sends a signal to turn on the inlet valve 4, and water is supplied. When
the water tank is refilled full, the detection device sends a signal to turn off the
inlet valve, and water supplying is stopped.

The pressure switch 3 is controlled by the pressure that it detects, which can be
configured as needed. Suppose the ON pressure is P1 and OFF pressure is
P2(P1<P2).When the pressure of the tubing that is connected to the pressure
switch is greater than or equal to P2, the pressure switch is OFF; otherwise the
pressure switch is ON. If the pressure is within P1 and P2, the pressure switch
keeps unchanged. Suppose P1<P<P2, when the pressure is equal to P2, the
pressure switch is OFF. If the pressure decreases from P2 to P, the pressure
switch keeps OFF until to P1. Similarly, if the pressure increases from P1 to P,
the pressure switch keeps ON until to P2.

The power supply 1, diaphragm pump 2 and pressure switch 3 are connected in
series and constitute a closed circuit. The diaphragm pump 2 is powered by
power supply 1 and controlled by the pressure switch 3.When the pressure
switch 3 is ON, the circuit is connected and the diaphragm pump 2 is started;
otherwise, the circuit is disconnected and the diaphragm pump 2 is stopped.

See the figure above. The external water tank contains purified deionized water,
which is passed via inlet tubing to inlet connector of the water supply module and
then to the analyzer via outlet after being pressurized.

The drainage module pressurizes and discharges the waste liquid from the
analyzer.

Figure 5-15 Skematic diagram of drainage module

The liquid floater sensor inside the waste buffer, upon the amount of waste in the
buffer, sends control signals to the PCB, which then turns on or off the waste
pump accordingly.

Air filter can drain the liquid automatically; the liquid in oil mist separator and mist
separator must be drained manually by following the steps below:

1) Make sure the analyzer is standby or powered off and the pressure is released
completely/

2) Pull out the drawer; place a small container under the oil mist separator as shown
in the figure below. Loosen the black knob at the bottom of the oil mist separator.

3) When the liquid in the oil separator is drained completely, tighten the black knob.

4) Follow the same steps to drain the mist separator

5-36 5 Hydropneumatic System


Note
When the liquid is drained, the knob must be tightened to keep the
air tightness of the assembly, otherwise the pressure of the analyze
may become abnormal.

Location: Hydropneumatic drawer assembly.

Function: Remove the water or oil mist in pressure or vacuum air.
