How to Find the Best Hematology Analyzer for Your Lab

What is a hematology analyzer for?
Hematology analyzers quantify and characterize the red blood cells (erythrocytes), white blood cells (leukocytes) and platelets (thrombocytes). One of the most common hematology tests is the complete blood count (CBC) which assesses the patients’ general health status as well as for detecting any potential underlying diseases. Hematology analyzers can immediately provide essential information that could directly affect the patients’ diagnosis and treatment.

What should you consider?
Hematology analyzers can come with varied parameters and technical specifications so it is important to know which types of features would integrate best into your laboratory’s workflow.
• the number of parameters needed
• analyzer’s counting method (flow cytometry, electrical impedance, or laser scattering)
• white blood cell differentiation (some analyzers do not offer leukocyte differentiation)
• types of reagent (closed or open system)
• whether an auto-sampler is necessary
• whether you’ll need a system for staining and preparing slides
• whether CRP (C-reactive protein) analysis is required
