Diatron (Budapest, Hungary), a provider of hematology and clinical chemistry analyzers, will be exhibiting various products, including its newly available Aquila 3-part differential hematology analyzer, at MEDICA 2017.
Specifically designed for the de-centralized laboratory and near-patient testing, the Aquila (60 samples/hour throughput) has low reagent consumption (<12ml), requires only a small sample size (20ul) and has a unique on-board reagent pack (sufficient for approximately 200 measurement cycles). It features a large touch screen, an intuitive user interface, an optional back-up battery pack and extended connectivity options. The low instrument reagent consumption, coupled with its on-board reagent pack, ensure that the shipping, storage and usage of reagents deliver enhanced ease of use as well as significant cost reductions.
The small analyzer requires little bench space and can be used in various testing locations, including small laboratories and in point-of-care applications, where high-quality complete blood count (CBC) results are desired.
