Sysmex America, Inc. (Lincolnshire, IL, USA), a diagnostic solutions company offering hematology, urinalysis and flow cytometry testing technology, exhibited its expanded line of products and services at the 71st AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo.

At AACC 2019, Sysmex demonstrated its products, processes, automation, quality, and best practices in clinical laboratory management. Sysmex showcased its highly automated and flexible PS-10, which is designed for complex laboratory-developed tests and routine flow cytometry applications, providing clinical laboratories with a new level of workflow efficiency and confidence in accurate results. The PS-10 automates sample preparation, alleviating primary operational bottlenecks in busy clinical flow laboratories, as well as eliminating variability between operators. The PS-10 also offers standardization for antibody cocktailing and reduces the amount of manual transferring of samples performed by laboratory staff.

The company also demonstrated its complete blood count (CBC) analyzer, the XN-20, a complementary system to the XN-10, but with an additional analysis channel. The White Precursor Cell (WPC) channel, which provides improved differentiation of abnormal WBC populations, adds further efficiency for laboratories. Also on display at the tradeshow was the UN-2000, Sysmex’s first fully automated urine particle counter and digital imaging system that provides laboratories with a highly standardized and efficient process for urine sediment analysis, one with less manual intervention and greater accuracy. Using fluorescence flow cytometry, the UN-2000 reduces time consuming hands-on review, delivering highly accurate particle quantitation and differentiation through walk-away loading, standardized criteria with high reproducibility, quantitative measurement and automated validation helping the review of the technologist.

In software solutions, Sysmex demonstrated its quality management system BeyondCare Quality Monitor for Hematology (BCQMh), which streamlines the end-to-end process of running controls and reviewing results, leading to improved analyzer productivity. The web-based quality control and calibration verification management program uses evidence-based quality control. Sysmex also highlighted it powerful software solution Caresphere Laboratory Management (LM) for monitoring quality, productivity and efficiency data, enabling labs to optimize their performance. Bringing together crucial elements such as turnaround times, rerun ratios, analyzer conditions and performance metrics, Caresphere LM provides at-a-glance metrics and status updates designed to give labs the information they need without having to search through multiple software systems. Whether managing one site or many, accessing statistics and calibration data is made simple with Caresphere LM.
