On-demand video: Performing body fluid analysis on the Atellica HEMA 580 Analyzer

Cruces University Hospital, Bilbao, Spain

Body fluids are a challenging sample type for laboratories, with the demands of testing often requiring the use of a dedicated, specialized instrument rather than routine hematology analyzers. However, a pilot study using the Atellica® HEMA 580 Analyzer* yielded promising results for body fluids, highlighting the practical potential of a dual-purpose (whole-blood and body fluid) testing solution for labs.

The newly launched Atellica HEMA 570 and 580 Analyzers* are designed to meet the hematology testing needs of today’s high-volume labs. Sharing fast throughput and an identical footprint, both instruments can pair with advanced informatics and automation solutions to suit diverse workflow requirements and drive efficiencies across labs and networks. Each delivers a range of analytical capabilities, including an 8-part white blood cell differential,† with the Atellica HEMA 580 Analyzer offering an expanded menu complete with optical platelet and reticulocyte testing.

This is one of four studies from early adopters highlighting the performance of the Atellica HEMA Analyzers under real-world conditions. Be sure to watch each video for an overview on a range of performance-related topics, including general accuracy and precision, body fluid capabilities, clinical case studies and comparisons, and user experience.
