For use in mid-to-high volume laboratories, the instrument features advanced technologies that include high-definition signal processing and multi-angle light scatter; these produce ten times more data than traditional haematology analysers, the company reports. ‘Moving parts are minimised to increase instrument reliability and technologist safety. The DxH 800’s modular design and small footprint make it the ultimate scalable solution for the LEAN lab.’
Cynthia Collins, group vice president of Cellular Analysis at Beckman Coulter, added: ‘The UniCel DxH 800 will transform the haematology lab with unparalleled quality of results, innovative efficiency solutions and revolutionary scalability, reinforcing Beckman Coulter’s place at the forefront of cellular analysis.’
The UniCel DxH 800 begins where the LH 700 series left off, Beckman Coulter points out. ‘Like the LH series, Decision Rules are a notable factor in the analyser’s success, only the UniCel DxH 800 takes decision criteria to the next level by reducing the need for manual review and eliminating the need for manual intervention during repeat or reflex testing. Directed by innovative software, samples are automatically pulled back to the aspirator without operator intervention.’
With its many innovative and proprietary technologies the new instrument also promises to significantly reduce the need for manual intervention. ‘For example, the Specimen Transport Module (STM) allows samples to move through the analyser by magnetic force without the need for a track or additional software,’ the manufacturer explains. ‘It is configured with no exposed moving parts, making the UniCel DxH 800 one of the most reliable and safest haematology instruments available.’
