5. What medical equipment are stored in the clinic?
The AcT 5 diff AL is a new, fully automated bench-top 5-part differential hematology analyzer with automatic loading and sampling. This analyzer delivers accurate test results and a user-friendly software interface in a compact design.
Monocyte, neutrophil and eosinophil populations are dentified, using the absorbance patterns produced by differential cytochemical staining of their granules versus volume.
Lymphocytes remain unstained and the basophil population is analyzed on a separate channel, using volume gating and selective lysis.
The Ac·T 5diff AL improves sample handling by eliminating manual sample loading, which also saves time, lowers operational costs and increases the laboratory’s overall workflow efficiency. It also has an easy-to-use data management system that streamlines data recall and requires less manual manipulation
