Bringing large-scale haematology benefits to smaller labs
16 Feb 2021
Beckman Coulter has launched the DxH 560 AL, a tabletop analyser, designed to reduce the time and resource constraints faced by small to mid-sized laboratories.
With the analyser’s auto-loading functionality, closed tube aspiration and walkaway capabilities, users can continually add up to 50 samples, provide safety against blood-borne pathogens and spend less time on manual instrument tasks. Compactly designed, the DxH 560 AL uses ~30% less counter space than other analysers in its class.
The DxH 560 AL delivers results in 60 seconds or fewer, and is suitable to use with difficult-to-draw patients (infants, oncology and elderly) as it only needs a 17 μL sample – less than a drop of blood. It also features customisable user login, paperless data management and fully traceable automated timeouts to guard personal health information.
Peter Soltani, PhD, senior vice president and general manager of haematology at Beckman Coulter, said: “With proven performance and low-cost to operate, the DxH 560 AL includes the analytical strengths and data management capabilities of high-throughput analysers in a small footprint.
“The industry-leading functionality and auto-load capabilities of the DxH 560 AL enable smaller labs to reap the same efficiency and productivity benefits as their larger counterparts without blowing the budget.”
The DxH 560 AL is part of Beckman Coulter’s DxH 500 series of small footprint tabletop haematology analysers, including the recently launched DxH 500 and the award winning DxH 520. It builds on the organisation’s strength in haematology innovation and complements its broad spectrum of haematology analysers, including the award winning DxH 690T** for mid-volume, DxH 900 for high-volume and DxH connected workcell solutions for ultra-high-volume facilities.
