ABX Pentra 120 Retic

Overview

  • Fluoro-flow cytomery and Argon-ion laser technology
  • Fully automated reticulocyte analysis
  • Thiazole orange staining
  • Throughput of 120 samples/hour (DIFF or Retics)

Features

ABX Pentra 120 Retic - Concept and technology

  • Methods of measurement: Cytochemistry, impedance, absorbance and flow cytometry (Eosinofix* and LMNE matrix)
  • Reticulocyte profile: Thiazole orange, fluorescence, impedance, Argon-ion laser (Retix* and retic matrix)
  • Balance Concept: Automatic control of the leukocyte count based on 3 independent channels
  • DHSS*: Focused flow cytometry and sequential measurement (impedance and absorbance)
  • Automatic re-run of samples: Selective and programmable (hematology parameters and smears)
  • Rotative mixing of samples: Smooth and efficient
  • Liquid valves* ABX (no pinch valves): Reliability and volume accuracy
