Sysmex America Inc, Lincolnshire, Ill, recently introduced two new hematology solutions at the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) Annual Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo—an automated hematology analyzer and a slide processing system.

The Sysmex XP-300™ Automated Hematology Analyzer, for smaller hospitals, clinics, and office-based Sysmex XP300labs, is a new addition to the company’s three-part differential analyzer portfolio. It features a color touch panel for user-friendly operation and bar code scanning, and is capable of storing up to 40,000 samples. A big update f the XP-300 provides access to the known reliability of Sysmex hematology analyzers.

The [removed]Sysmex DI-60 Integrated Slide Processing System[/removed] is a compact platform that provides integrated, scalable automation of the manual DI-60 Sysmexblood film preparation and WBC differential process. It integrates slide preparation, slide staining, and digital image preclassification of cells in a single work cell. A more standardized differential result and extensive collaboration via network connectivity enhances the level of service labs can provide to clinicians and patients.

A new version of the WAM Decision Support Software for the Clinical Lab, Sysmex WAM v.5.0, includes an extended delta and previous checking module that goes beyond the traditional delta checking by adding the ability to ‘look-back’ and determine the absence or presence of flags, comments, and operator alerts over a range of results. The ultimate goal is to reduce the number of unnecessary smear reviews or manual differentials.
