New Haematology Analysers Minimise Microscopy Slide Reviews
Product News Sep 10, 2019
HORIBA UK Ltd, Medical has announced the publication of scientific studies which demonstrate the performance of its new HELO high throughput fully automated haematology platform on body fluid and pathological samples. HORIBA’s Yumizen® H2500 and H1500 automated haematology analysers within the HELO platform deliver enhanced precision for complete blood counts and white blood cell (WBC) differential testing, with body fluid analysis included as standard. This could improve diagnosis, minimise unnecessary manual microscopy slide reviewing and enhance laboratory workflow, as highlighted by two recent scientific evaluation studies.
The first study was undertaken by Nantes University Hospital (CHU de Nantes) focusing on the need for automated analysis of biological fluids for robust and reliable results reporting; this focused on the automated body fluid analysis cycle on the Yumizen H2500. The second study, undertaken by the Institut Bergonié Comprehensive Cancer Centre compared the flagging performance in the WBC differential of the Yumizen H1500/H2500 to a routine analyser.
Commenting on the successful outcome of the studies, Mandy Campbell, HORIBA Medical said, “These evaluation studies undertaken by recognised authorities in haematological analysis, demonstrate the excellent performance of our new Yumizen H1500/H2500 automated haematology analysers with both body fluid and pathological samples. Body fluid analysis is available as standard on these analysers which have been shown to enhance diagnoses and lower film review rates to improve laboratory workflow.”
