The Hematek 3000 system from Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics, Tarrytown, NY, provides semi-automated slide staining of up to 60 slides per hour. Specifically designed for hematology, the solution can be used as a primary slide staining solution in low-volume labs, or as a backup to fully automated slide preparation protocols in larger laboratories. The continuous-feed loading platform eliminates wasted time associated with batch staining methods, while individual, consistent slide staining ensures accurate identification of white blood cells, red blood cell morphology, and platelet assessment. The Hematek rinse reagent contains the optimal alcohol concentration for proper slide drying, so that slides are immediately available for viewing upon completion of staining. The system’s “all-in-one” stain pack includes enough stain for up to 900 slides and offers easy load-and-go operation for optimized daily workflow and minimal hands-on time.
