Features & Benefits

With the Practical Automation capabilities afforded by the CellaVision® DM1200 Digital Cell Morphology System, you can eliminate the majority of manual steps commonly performed in blood cell differentials for maximum speed and productivity. The CellaVision DM1200 system enables this by automatically locating cells on a stained peripheral blood or body fluid smear, then pre-classifying, storing, and presenting the data for confirmation by a technologist.

Automate blood cell differentials

  • Automatic differential count on peripheral blood or body fluid smears
  • Pre-classification and grouping of similar white blood cells into 18 distinct cell classes
  • Pre-characterization of red blood cells for polychromasia, hypochromasia, aniso-, micro-, and macrocytosis, and poikilocytosis
  • Platelet estimation
  • High-quality images to detect cell inclusions

Streamline cell image analysis

  • View of all cells within a specific cell class
  • Comparison of different cell classes on a single screen
  • Magnification of individual cells for detailed analysis
  • Software that enables the comparison of individual cells with user-defined reference cells

Increase proficiency, efficiency, and ease of use

  • Continuous feed of slides, allowing for an escalating workload without increasing labor
  • Digital slide creation for future education and assessment
  • Improved ergonomics versus traditional microscopes

Enhance networking and collaboration

  • Bi-directional LIS support
  • Ability to share a database with other CellaVision analyzers
  • Real-time, remote access to slide data from anywhere within the network 


The CellaVision DM1200 system also integrates seamlessly with your existing Siemens hematology systems, including:

  • ADVIA® 2120i Hematology System
  • ADVIA Autoslide Slide Maker
  • ADVIA CentraLink® Data Management System

Leverage optional components for enhanced capabilities

CellaVision Body Fluid Application

  • Scan body fluids, including cerebrospinal, peritoneal, and pleural fluids
  • Perform a preliminary differential of nucleated cells, allowing the user to scan the entire sample area
  • Pre-classify up to seven WBC classes with two magnification options
  • Tag regions of interest (ROI), add comments, and store and share images from anywhere in your network
  • Run body fluid slides concurrently with WBC and RBC differentials on stained peripheral blood smears

CellaVision Remote Review Software

  • Analyze, reclassify, and sign slides from a remote location
  • Request second opinions and collaborate within and across hospitals
  • Compare new cell images with patient’s historical images in real time

CellaVision Proficiency Online Module*

  • Develop a program for education and competency testing of manual blood cell differentials
  • Standardize differential results, and assess, track, and document proficiency
  • Benchmark to a morphology expert
