Introduction Automation of patient blood analysis is becoming more and more inevitable. Automation is not only required in routine clinical chemistry and haematology, but can also conver great benefit in the immunoassay laboratory (1). Because of their around-theclock availability, automated systems should be easy to handle and as flexible as possible to enable all laboratory personnel to work with them at all times. Availability of random access together with the use of primary tubes, using bar code labelling and connection with the administrative host computer, plays a crucial role in the automation process. In our view, there are at present (May 1993) two important random access automated immunoassay analysers available in the Netherlands, the ACS-180 (Ciba Corning Diagnostics, Mefield, MA, USA) and the AIA-1200 (Tosoh Corporation, Tokyo, Japan, represented in Europe by Eurogenetics, Tessenderlo, Belgium). Because of the need for immunoassay automation in our laboratory, and in the context of the above-mentioned requirements, we decided to evaluate these two analysers. For this purpose we monitored precision, recovery, and the correlation between both systems and the routine method. Eur. J. Clin. Chem. Clin.
