The system provides unique combined blood count and CRP results from small blood volumes in 4 minutes.
Horiba Medical has launched the Microsemi CRP haematology analyser.
Developed by HORIBA Medical in Japan, ‘emi’ means ‘smile’ in Japanese and stands foreasy to use, maintenance free and intelligent.
After a successful release in Japan, this unique instrument is now available in Europe.
This compact addition to the Micros range simultaneously provides a complete blood count (CBC) and C-reactive protein (CRP) from just 18 ?l of blood - all in just 4 minutes.
The Microsemi CRP provides information of great clinical value enabling quicker and more accurate medical decisions to ultimately reduce hospitalisation times and patient costs.
Its CRP analysis allows the screening of patient samples to detect the presence of inflammation caused by bacterial infections, or other treatable inflammatory disease.
Measurement is possible immediately after blood sample collection, making this analyser the ideal choice for emergency testing situations. The Microsemi CRP can also be used to assess infection and inflammatory conditions that require progressive observation.
Furthermore, its micro-sampling capabilities are ideal for paediatric blood analysis, requiring just 10µL for CBC and 18 µL for CBC CRP, and can be used with capillary, as well as venous blood samples.
Comprehensive and efficient on-board software, colour touch screen, alongside fast and easy access to results adds to the Microsemi CRP’s success.
Design features have created an environmentally-friendly model (using a non-cyanide reagent for haemoglobin measurement) that is incredibly compact, lightweight and quiet. The Microsemi CRP is easy to use and does not require specialised staff.
