Beckman Coulter (Brea, CA, USA) has launched the new DxH 560 AL, a tabletop hematology analyzer geared to reduce the time and resource constraints faced by small to mid-sized laboratories.
With the analyzer'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 analyzers in its class. The DxH 560 AL delivers results in 60 seconds or less, and is the ideal instrument to use with difficult-to-draw patients (infants, oncology and elderly) as it only needs a 17 ?L sample – less than a drop of blood, one of the smallest aspiration volumes on the market. The analyzer also provides industry-leading privacy and security features, including customizable user login, paperless data management and fully traceable automated timeouts that guard patient electronic personal health information.
The DxH 560 AL is part of Beckman Coulter's DxH 500 series of small footprint tabletop hematology analyzers, including the recently launched DxH 500 and the award winning DxH 520. The full DxH 500 series of analyzers include dynamic gating for its 5-part differential, eliminating rejected results and lowering manual interventions.
"With proven performance and low-cost to operate, the DxH 560 AL includes the analytical strengths and data management capabilities of high-throughput analyzers in a small footprint," said Peter Soltani, Ph.D., senior vice president and general manager of hematology at Beckman Coulter. "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."
