ABX Pentra 120 Retic SPS

Overview

  • Microsampling of 50 µl whole blood from primary tubes.
  • User-definable smearing criteria.
  • Choice of staining protocols.
  • Validation station with cytology atlas.
  • Up to 120 samples/hour.

Features

ABX Pentra 120 Retic SPS 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
  • Wedge smear tape cartridge: Optimized slide preparation and no contamination.
  • Dedicated slide staining wells : No contamination and minimum dye consumption.
  • Liquid valves* ABX (no pinch valves): Reliability and volume accuracy
