Diatron (Budapest, Hungary) introduced its new high throughput, 5-part differential hematology analyzer with continuous loading autoloader for the first time at the MEDICA 2019 Trade Fair held in Düsseldorf, Germany from 18-21st November. The MEDICA is the world's largest medical trade fair for medical technology, electromedical equipment, laboratory equipment, diagnostics and pharmaceuticals.

Diatron, a global provider of hematology and clinical chemistry analyzers, also showcased its P500 flagship clinical chemistry analyzer, and the Diatron KleeYa, an open, flexible CLIA platform, and demonstrated the Aquila 3-part diff hematology analyzer from its current hematology product portfolio.

The Diatron Aquila 5Dretics is the smallest and most compact cap piercing 5-part differential hematology analyzer with a maximum throughput of 80 tests per hour. It has a low reagent consumption (<30 ml), requires a small sample volume (40 ul) and has a continuous loading autoloader, making the walk away system convenient for all customers. It uses only two reagents as it is a fully optical system, resulting in low reagent consumption and making it more cost-effective. The Diatron Aquila 5Dretics requires little bench space (32 cm W x 30 cm D x 37 cm H without autoloader) and features a large touch screen, an intuitive user interface and a protected reagent pack system with unique connection

At the 2019 edition of MEDICA, Diatron also showcased its P500 flagship clinical chemistry analyzer. The P500 is an ergonomically designed, user-friendly system that offers a high level of automation and delivers assured result quality. The cost-effective, walkaway system is intended for medium throughput usage, providing results for 215 tests per hour on a typical sample mix. Also showcased at the event was Diatron KleeYa, a highly flexible, fast and sensitive random access chemiluminescence platform that provides a unique approach to the use of different bead-based chemiluminescence technologies, offering superior assay performance and providing ease of use with cost containment. The open platform system features a unique trigger cartridge technology that allows the use of both flash and glow detection technologies, along with unique stackable reaction cuvettes to eliminate system handling errors and reduce shipping and storage space.

Additionally, Diatron demonstrated the Aquila 3-part diff hematology analyzer which offers a throughput of 60 tests per hour, requires a sample size of only 10µl, and consumes less than 10ml of reagent per test. It is equipped with an onboard reagent pack sufficient for approximately 200 measurements and includes a touchscreen, intuitive user interface, optional backup battery pack, and extended connectivity options.
