Created by HORIBA Medical |

HORIBA Medical is proud to announce that its Yumizen hematology analyzers have won the 2023 Medical Device Network Excellence Award in the category for Environmental, Innovation, and Product Launches. 

A recently updated compact instrument range, comprising the Yumizen H500 (open and closed tube sampling options) and the Yumizen H550 (autoloading) is a winner in the Innovation and the Product launch categories. The analyzers are suited to a wide range of environments from small labs to clinics and blood banks.

These new products boast impressive performance, providing whole blood 20 µL sampling and delivering 60 complete blood counts per hour with 37 parameters. In addition, the autoloading version provides with 40 tube autonomy plus continuous loading and STAT mode. 

The operator interface is ergonomically friendly with clear color-coded menus. The products can also be supported remotely via Yumicare connectivity which provides confidence for continuing service provision. 

In addition, the range offers optional infectious screening flags for Malaria and Dengue, making the analyzers effective as mobile screening tools in endemic regions. 

Across its Yumizen product range, HORIBA Medical has developed reagent technologies which rely on lower numbers of reagents and smaller volumes.  For example, the Yumizen H2500 high-throughput, multi-parameter instrument requires only 6 reagents, compared to an industry standard of 8-15. The Yumizen H500 and Yumizen H550 models need only 3 reagents. Furthermore, the Yumizen H2500’s reagents contain less methanol and fluorescent dyes than equivalents, making them help to protect the environment and human health. 

Laurent Araud and Mandy Campbell, International Hematology Product Managers commented: "Our Yumizen hematology instruments. have been designed to meet and exceed customer needs for new technology and environmental challenges while maintaining affordability for a wide range of laboratories and clinics worldwide. These awards are a fantastic endorsement for our product ranges and a tribute to the dedicated hematology teams at HORIBA Medical. We are delighted to receive them".
