In recent years, high sensitivity measurements that use chemiluminescence in the detection system have become the mainstay for immunoassay of infection markers, tumor markers, hormones, etc. Considerable shortening of the measurement time has also been achieved to make the testing efficient.

Sysmex launched an automated immunoassay system HISCL-2000i  ( Sysmex Corporation, Kobe, Japan ) that comprises an analyzer and reagents capable of rapid high sensitivity measurements with very small sample volumes. I shall describe here an outline of the HISCL reagents, referring to the principle and characteristics of the measurement.
