The study objective was to perform the analytical evaluation of the clinical chemistry analyzer JCA-BM6010/C ( BM6010/C; Sysmex Corporation, Kobe, Japan ). The JCA-BM6010/C is a new high throughput compact and efficient analyzer from Sysmex Corporation. Results were obtained for within-run and between-day imprecision, interference, linearity and comparison with cobas c501 [ cobas c501; Roche Diagnostics ( Schweiz ) AG, Switzerland ]. Altogether 12 analytes including glucose, creatinine, uric acid, total bilirubin, total cholesterol, triglycerides, aspartate aminotransferase ( AST ), alanine aminotransferase ( ALT ), HDL-C, urea, total protein and albumin were tested. Satisfactory precision results were obtained, with most assays demonstrating within-run coefficients of variation of less than 3.3% and between-day coefficients of variation less than 3.7%. The linearity for all assays was acceptable over the range tested. Correlation results were adequate. We conclude that the BM6010/C demonstrates good performance capabilities, making this instrument suitable for a medium - to high - volume laboratory.
