Siemens Healthineers, Erlangen, Germany, and Sysmex Corporation, Kobe, Japan, renewed the companies’ long-standing global supply, distributorship, sales, and service agreement for a broad portfolio of hemostasis products including a multi-year extension. Additionally, the companies’ agreement includes the future distribution of Sysmex’s CN-Series automated blood coagulation analyzers, the CN-3000 and CN-6000, by Siemens Healthineers. The companies plan for Siemens Healthineers to start commercialization of the Sysmex CN Systems in various countries later this year.

A broad menu of both routine and specialty coagulation assays from Siemens Healthineers can be performed on these newest additions to the Sysmex family portfolio of hemostasis analyzers, which offer laboratories a compact and comprehensive hemostasis testing solution. The Sysmex CN Systems are designed to integrate with Atellica Data Manager and Aptio Automation to further streamline hands-free workflow and to automate sample processing, including sample preparation as well as storage, refrigeration and retrieval, if needed.

“Siemens Healthineers and Sysmex have built a solid hemostasis partnership for more than 25 years since initially signing the global alliance agreement in 1995,” says Deepak Nath, PhD, president of Laboratory Diagnostics for Siemens Healthineers. “Together we are able to deliver both quality and comprehensive hemostasis testing solutions to laboratories of all sizes across the world.”

Siemens Healthineers and Sysmex provide hemostasis products used to test for blood clotting disorders, preoperative bleeding risk management, and the monitoring of patients on anticoagulant therapy medications.
