The technology behind random access analysers involves flexible optical systems which can measure absorbances for one reaction at different scheduled times, and for several reactions performed simultaneously at different wavelengths. Optics control involves light sources (continuous and flash mode), indexing of monochromatic filters, injection-moulded plastic cuvettes, optical fibres, and polychromatic analysis.
