Hematology analyzers are used to count and characterize blood cells for disease detection and monitoring. Most manufacturers combine technologies such as electrical impedance, flow cytometry or fluorescent flow cytometry with innovative uses of reagents to produce proprietary methods.
For optimal results, Siemen’s ADVIA 2120 hematology system uses peroxidase staining, the gold standard for differential testing. This primary methodology also provides a secondary total white cell count that acts as an internal QC check to monitor sample integrity. Designed for medium- to large-volume laboratories, this analyzer with Autoslide streamlines workflow by eliminating the majority of manual steps commonly performed to maximize productivity.
This bench-top hematology analyzer uses a combination of light scatter, cytochemical staining, and nuclear density on two independent channels to measure the total and differential white cell counts. Operating with a cyanide free method for hemoglobin measurement, the analyzer features a new user interface. The system can also routinely analyze biological fluid samples in addition to blood.
The device maximizes the effectiveness of costly platelet transfusions with accurate results the first time-even at very low platelet levels. It simplifies maintenance with Unifluidics™ Technology through reduced fluidics, eliminated pinch valves, and automated daily cleaning.
The system features:
- Throughput of 74-120 samples / hour
- Extended linearity of 400 x 1000/µL that minimizes the need for dilutions
- Specific cytochemical differentiation of myeloid and lymphoid cells
- Reduced differential reject rates
- Unique six-parameter differential with LUC population that provides additional clinical information
- Sample Capacity 150 (15 Racks with 10 tube capacity)
With direct measurements of intracellular hemoglobin, the unit provides sensitive and specific RBC morphology for accurate and early detection of disease states.
Reliable lab equipment suppliers offer refurbished models of ADVIA 2120 at reduced rates that is as good as a new one. The models are often provided with 90 day parts warranty and undergo thorough inspection to ensure better performance. They are also repaired and reassembled to meet original manufacturer specification. Certain vendors also offer reagents, controls, consumables and service contracts for most models.
