Gold standard ESR

Does your laboratory perform Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) tests and are you looking to automate this process? If so, the Starrsed ST is the obvious solution. Starrsed is the world's only product line that allows laboratories to perform ESR tests that are fully in agreement with the Westergren Method (the Gold Standard). The Starrsed ST is entirely automated and standardized, which makes it easy to use for every employee in your laboratory. The Starrsed ST achieves the highest degree of reliability in testing, leaving you and your operators available for other tasks in the laboratory.

Westergren Sedimentation Method
One of the oldest and most frequently requested blood tests is ESR. It has not changed fundamentally in the way it is carried out since Westergren described it in 1921. In 2011, the International Council for Standardization in Hematology (ICSH) and the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) defined the Reference Method for ESR to be the Westergren Method; the Gold Standard. The objective of ESR testing is to measure inflammatory state. The Westergren Method measures both infections related to infectious diseases and chronic inflammatory conditions. In addition to being very reliable, the Westergren Sedimentation Method is also amongst the cheapest laboratory tests available.
