  • Automate the analysis of WBCs, RBCs and PLTs
  • Create digital scans of any interesting specimen
  • Compact design with small footprint


Slide Handling

  • Accepts slides with ground edges, clipped, round or square corners
  • Order ID for slides entered either manually or using an optional barcode reader
  • Slides are loaded one at a time
  • Analyses slides with blood smears
Immersion Oil

  • Manual oil dispensing
Quality Control

  • Cell location accuracy test for the verification of hardware and stain quality
  • Built-in smear check
