Many new systems have developed since the publication of Immunoassay Automation: A Practical Guide in 1992. Dr. Chan's updated guide is a supplement to his earlier volume, not a replacement of it. He discussesthe changing clinical laboratory environment and summarizes automated immunoassay systems. He then goes on to describe each system in-depth, including an introduction, a description of the instrumentation, the reagent, and the performance system.
Provides a general discussion of the changing environment of testing in the clinical laboratory
Offers a summary of automated immunoassay systems
Serves as a practical guide to using the following systems: AxSym, Opus Magnum, VIDAS, Radius, ACS 180, Immulite, ACA Plus, Immuno 1, Coas CORE, Access, AIA 1200DX, AutoDELFIA, O1B, Copalis, and Universal solid phase microtiter plate system.

Dr. Chan's book belongs on the desk of every chemistry supervisor planning to select an automated immunoassay system.
The individual reviews each contain informative sections on assay and instrument design, performance characteristics, possible future developments and end with a summary of the major strengths and weaknesses of the system concerned. Each is individuallyreferenced, well-illustrated, and the schematic diagrams are particularly helpful.
