Starrsed TL

A very small footprint and all functions integrated within a single instrument. This is what the completely redesigned Starrsed TL has to offer. It is extremely versatile, because it can be integrated into almost any track system in the world. It provides the highest possible ESR test capacity with an absolute minimum of handling. Maximum automation, yet still able to run an emergency sample.


RR Mechatronics has a long and successful track record in automating Westergren ESR tests. The first ESR instrument dates back to 1987, whereas the integrated Interliner, currently known as the Starrsed RL, was introduced in 2000.

Today’s laboratory deals with high volumes of tests and the pressure to keep costs low. With this in mind, RR Mechatronics has invested significantly in the development of instruments that offer so-called Total Lab Automation (TLA). The Starrsed TL offers hematology labs the world standard for track oriented ESR-automation.

The Instrument

A very small footprint and all functions integrated within the instrument. This is what makes the completely new design of the Starrsed TL so special. The Starrsed TL measures ESR by means of the proven method already used in the Starrsed RS and RL. Like its siblings, the Starrsed TL has incorporated the Westergren method without compromise. It combines the accuracy of this gold standard with maximum reliability and throughput.

The crux is the addition of a pick&mix unit that is fully integrated into the instrument design. The unit picks tubes from a given point-in-space on the connected track that runs through the lab. This allows for the highest possible ESR throughput volumes with the absolute minimum of handling. Despite maximum automation, lab technicians are still able to take back full control of the instrument to slip in one or more emergency samples.

It truly is a really high performance and versatile instrument, specifically designed to meet the needs of state of the art Laboratories.

The instrument is compatible with all common types and brands of tracks.
