Dave Fisher on the changes underway for imaging.
This month's roundup of the latest industry products.
The ABX Pentra 60 C+ is a highly compact and cost-effective bench top hematology analyzer from HORIBA ABX with outstanding technical capabilities.
Frequently used in satellite or smaller laboratories and clinics, as well as being used as a competent back-up system in larger laboratories, the Pentra 60C+ can process up to 60 samples an hour and is able to provide five-part differential analysis (DIFF), plus atypical lymphocytes and large immature cells.
The Pentra 60C+ incorporates HORIBA ABX-patented Multi Distribution Sampling System (MDSS) and Double-Hydrodynamic Sequential System (DHSS). The 26-parameter, fully automated analyzer is capable of closed tube micro-sampling from whole blood, requiring sample volumes of only 30 µl for a Complete Blood Count (CBC) and 53 µl for DIFF. This unique feature allows exceptional results with all sample types (Pediatric, Oncology etc.).
The Pentra 60C+ is provided with a workstation to view results as they are processed as well as providing the essential audit trail for quality control, calibration, service and maintenance, reagents and patient record archives.
HORIBA ABX designed the Pentra 60C+ with reduced maintenance in mind, using only five onboard reagents and with quality control and reagent management systems, the system requires minimum intervention. Additionally, the Pentra 60 C+ has no compressor, providing whisper-quiet operation.
