QBC STAR Tube

The difference lies in the QBC STAR Tube. It is flexible enough to use for both venous or capillary samples. Unlike other systems, when performing a finger stick you can use the QBC STAR Tube as the single vehicle for collection and analysis. 

The dry reagents contained within the tube facilitates testing and analysis safely and accurately without the liquid reagents and liquid biohazardous waste of impedance systems. The clinician simply fills the QBC STAR Tube with the blood sample and places it in the instrument. 

After analysis, the QBC STAR Haematology System displays nine clinically significant parameters, both on the LCD screen and on a hard copy printout for your records.
