Key Features and Benefits

  • ReliableThe long lifetime diode laser, diagnostic flagging system, and cap recognition feature ensures optimal performance at all times and prevents sampling errors.

  • User friendly - A large, color touch screen allows easy, fast, and efficient operation. The integrated barcode reader provides safe and rapid sample processing either manually or via an optional 100-sample capacity autoloader. This hematology analyzer features a logical multi-lingual operating menu and the Windows-based software enables easy connection to a host computer and printers. Results are displayed with 2 histograms and 2 scattergrams to provide maximum patient information.

  • EfficientThe 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. In addition, the analyzer has a 100,000-result database capacity.

  • Space saving The Abacus 5 hematology analyzer is one of the smallest 5-part differential analyzers, requiring minimal bench space. This makes it an ideal system for use in space-restricted environments such as clinics and small to medium laboratories.

  • Cost Efficient The Abacus 5 uses only 3 reagents to perform an analysis, plus a small volume of cleaner, thus providing a 5-part differential result at a very competitive price. In addition, this hematology analyzer requires minimal maintenance, thus reducing its operational downtime.

  • Case Study Book Case Study Book is available for perfect interpretation of scattergrams.
