Scientific Principle :
Electrical resistance for cell counting (WBC, RBC, Plt) and sizing (Plt,RBC).
This is combined with optical absorbance of cyanmethemoglobin for hemoglobin.
The technology combines to give a full CBC with 3 part differential in just under one minute.
Sample Handling :
Blood samples must be collected in EDTA tubes. The following sample sizes are required:
Direct mode : 125 µL whole blood
Sample saver mode : 60 µL whole blood
Pre-dilute Mode : 80 µL whole blood
Dilution system :
In order to maximise performance and reduce instrument down-time a high precision ceramic
shear valve and computer controlled reagent dispenser are used. Automatic rinse inside
and outside of the sample probe prevents carryover and reduces risk of transmission
of blood borne pathogen to operators.
Minimum 60 samples per hour in direct sampling mode
System Software :
The Excell 16/18 uses powerful but user friendly software. Every operator request such as counting, retrieveing results from the memory, QC calibration or printing is only a few key strokes away.
Patient identification : 9 digit keypad entry
Patient data storage : 200 results with histograms
Report format : User selectable
Calibration : Automatic or manual
Units : The user can select MKS, SI, SI modified, or Chinese
Patient normal range : User defined
Patient action limits : User defined
Quality Control :
A comprehensive onboard QC package allows optimal monitoring of system performance. The Excell 16/18 allows two lots with three levels each. Up to one result for each level per day for 100 days or a maximum of 300 results for each lot can be stored onboard. QC data can also be viewed in a monthly Levy-Jennings plot. A log of QC data with automatic calculation of mean, SD and CV can be printed.
Operation alerts : Excell 16 / 18 users get full feedback on operation of the system and sample being analyzed with a range of diagnostic alerts.
Maintenance : To monitor maintenance of the system a maintenance log is available.
Language : Multi language capability.
