Pentra MS CRP

Overview

  • 5 DIFF + CRP on the same platform
  • Micro-sampling on whole blood: 5 DIFF mode : 26μL / 5 DIFF +CRP: 35μL
  • Cytochemistry, Impedance (real cell volume measurement) & Optical (analysis of the internal cellular structure by measuring light absorbance) - DHSS* Technology.
  • Perfect homogenization of blood samples with reagents - MDSS** Technology.
  • CRP:Latex Absorbance measurement  at  660nm Wavelength with Hematocrit correction

Features

Ready and easy to use CRP reagent

  • Throughput: Up to 60 samples/hour
  • Reagents: Only 4 onboard reagents and 1 diluent
  • Perfect differentiation of the 5 WBC sub-populations with DHSS* Technology
  • 3 histograms for RBC, BAS/WBC and PLT together with the 5 DIFF Matrix.
  • Basophils counted through specific channel
  • High resolution matrix includes the determination of 2 additional subpopulations (% and #): Atypical Lymphocytes (ALY***) and Large Immature Cells (LIC***)
