Sysmex Corporation (Kobe, Japan) has entered into a strategic alliance agreement with CellaVision (Lund, Sweden) to advance hematology solutions. This collaboration aims to expand Sysmex's product range, including the development of cutting-edge cell morphology analyzers. Together, Sysmex and CellaVision will strive to improve the efficiency and standardization of testing workflows in hematology, enhance the accuracy of cell morphology classification, and provide valuable support in diagnostic processes.

The partnership between Sysmex and CellaVision has spanned 20 years, focusing on hematology, which involves the analysis of blood cells such as red and white blood cells in terms of their count, types, and sizes. This collaboration began in 2001 when Sysmex entered a sales alliance for CellaVision’s cell morphology analyzers. In 2013, Sysmex introduced the DI-60 Automated Digital Cell Morphology Analyzer, a product of its collaboration with CellaVision. This system, when integrated with Sysmex’s hematology analyzers, automates up to the cell morphology analysis stage, significantly streamlining and standardizing testing workflows in clinical laboratories worldwide.

The renewed partnership between the two companies aims to enhance their product offerings, particularly in next-generation cell morphology analyzers. They have agreed to extend their collaborative efforts to advance hematology solutions and maintain their agreement until 2038. Leveraging a stable, long-term collaborative framework, Sysmex plans to utilize its expertise in optimizing testing workflows in hematology, while CellaVision will contribute its advanced digital imaging and analysis technologies. These joint efforts are intended to further improve efficiency and standardization in testing workflows and increase clinical value by providing more precise cell morphology classification to aid in diagnoses.

“We are pleased to expand our alliance with CellaVision since 2013,” said Takashi Ono, Member of the Managing Board and Senior Executive Officer, Managing Director at Sysmex Corporation. “This alliance enables us to further enhance our leadership position in hematology worldwide. We will collaborate wider and deeper to increase value to our customers by portfolio expansion in digital cell morphology.”

"This alliance marks an important milestone in our joint mission to elevate healthcare and evolve microscopy together for a better healthcare journey,” said Simon Østergaard, President & CEO, CellaVision AB. “We are delighted to further strengthen our ties with Sysmex to continue the global adoption of advanced digital cell morphology solutions integrated with the leading cell counter offerings of Sysmex.”
