Diatron, which develops, manufactures and markets hematology analyzers, and clinical chemistry analyzers, showcased its latest products, the Abacus 5 and Aquila hematology analyzers, at MEDLAB 2017, the world’s largest laboratory exhibition and congress in the Middle East.
One of the world’s top hematology analyzer manufacturers, the Hungarian company’s product range also includes hematology reagents, hematology control material, clinical chemistry analyzers, clinical chemistry reagents, and clinical chemistry controls.
At MEDLAB 2017, held at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre, UAE, from February 6-9, 2017, Diatron showcased the most advanced model in its range of hematology analyzers, the Abacus 5, which utilizes patented laser-based optical measurement technology developed by the company. The Abacus 5 provides a complete 26 parameter report, including optical determinations of the 5-part WBC differential count. It offers open and closed tube sampling options and has a throughput of 60 samples per hour in either stat or autoloader mode. The Abacus 5 hematology analyzer is one of the smallest 5-part differential analyzers available in the market and requires minimal bench space, thus making it ideal for use in space-restricted environments such as clinics and small to medium laboratories.
Diatron also exhibited Aquila, a 3-part differential hematology analyzer that can be used in any testing location and application where high quality CBC results are desired. The Diatron Aquila provides 3-part differential hematology results using less than 20 μl of whole blood and can operate in a closed or open tube mode. The system has a throughput of up to 60 tests per hour, and its compact size and unique on board reagent pack means that it requires little work and storage space. The Diatron Aquila can easily be moved from testing site to testing site and has an optional battery pack to support mobile testing needs and/or un-reliable main power supply locations.
