ADVIA 560 and 560 AL Hematology SystemsMaximum output with minimal user intervention

The ADVIA® 560 and 560 AL Hematology Systems offer laboratories fast, high-quality CBC testing. As part of Siemens Healthineers family of scalable hematology analyzers, the systems have been designed with flexible and intuitive options to enable the right fit in your lab. Compact and cost-efficient, the systems can serve as stand-alone or backup analyzers. With an optional autoloader to automate sampling, the ADVIA 560 AL System can flexibly adapt to the ever-changing laboratory environment.

  • Runs up to 60 samples per hour
  • Processes aspiration volumes as low as 110 µL
  • Facilitates efficient manual sampling of both open and closed tubes
  • Measures 26 parameters and employs laser-based optical measurement to provide a 5-part white blood cell differential*
  • Provides storage capacity for up to 100,000 results
  • Offers the flexibility to add the autoloader to the ADVIA 560 System at any time

Features & Benefits

The ADVIA® 560 and 560 AL Hematology Systems deliver optimal performance and adaptability to low- and mid-volume laboratories. The optional autoloader for the ADVIA 560 AL system streamlines automatic sampling to give laboratories even greater workflow efficiency.

Laser light scatter technology for 5-part WBC differential
Impedance method for CBC
Light absorbance for HGB measurement

26 parameters, including 5-part differential with two histograms and scattergrams for RBC and PLT: BASO, WBC, LYM, MON, NEU, EOS, BAS, LYM%, MON%, NEU%, EOS%, BAS%, RBC, HCT, MCV, RDW-SD, RDW-CV, HGB, MCH, MCHC, PLT, PCT, MPV, PDW-SD, PDW-CV, P-LCC, P-LCR

Sample Stability
Sample stability is characterized by the absolute and percent difference from the baseline values measured 30 minutes after venipuncture for WBC, NEU%, NEU, LYM%, LYM, MON%, MON, EOS%, EOS, BAS%, BAS, RBC, RDW, and PLT. For MPV, the baseline is 2 hours after venipuncture. The expected stability is 7 hours from venipuncture.

Three cyanide-free reagents (Diluent, Lyse, and Cleaner)
