Comparability of the cooling effect of Peltier thermoelectric elements in a chemiluminescence analyzer under extreme climatic conditions

  • In this work, the comparability of the cooling effect of two Peltier elements from different manufacturers is investigated for cooling the reagent module of a chemiluminescence analyzer. The temperature inside the reagent module is measured and evaluated at several positions. In this study, two different types of verification tests are performed under extreme climatic conditions. On the one hand, in a specific functional “cold start test”, the temperature in the reagent module is measured and evaluated to determine whether the measured temperatures are within the specified temperature range after the specified time. In addition, the performance of the Peltier elements is also evaluated. On the other hand, as an unspecific regression stress test, a “smoke test” is performed that is mainly designed to allow identifying unpredictable events. While processing a long and complex work list, any deviant system behavior can be detected. Again, the temperature inside the reagent module should not exceed the specified temperature range.
