    Abstract: An automatic analyzer that allows appropriate setting of analytical parameters which incorporate batch-to-batch variations in reagents. The analytical parameters consist of fixed parameters and variable parameters. The fixed parameters include a reagent-dispensing quantity, a sample-dispensing quantity, measuring wavelength, and the like, each of which becomes a pivot for measurement of a sample, and parameters to be used are selected from an item code and bottle code assigned to a reagent bottle. The variable parameters include a linearity check value, a prozone check value, reaction limit absorbance, technical limits, first standard solution absorbance, variation allowable absorbance, and the like, each of which is associated with sample-measurement result checks. The automatic analyzer reads bar code information from the reagent bottle and adopts variable parameters of a corresponding version with the item code, the bottle code, and batch information relating to the reagent, as a key.
