Hematology analyses are routinely performed both by large clinical hospital laboratories on fully automated, high-throughput analyzers as well as by smaller physician’s office laboratories on stand-alone analyzers. As clinical laboratory tests form the basis for patient diagnosis, analyzer accuracy and precision are equality important independent of sample scale or clinical setting.
Swelab Lumi – reliability when it counts
Swelab Lumi is a hematology system intended for the smaller laboratory (Fig 1). The analyzer provides information on 29 parameters for the CBC, including red blood cells (RBC) and platelets (PLT), hemoglobin (HGB), as well as a 5-part differential count of the WBCs.
Swelab Lumi employs well-proven measurement technologies. The analyzer uses impedance for RBC and PLT counts, while the WBC differential is conducted by laser-based flow cytometry. HGB is determined spectrophotometrically.
