Streck has introduced Cell-Chex Auto, the first body-fluid control for automated body-fluid analysis on the Abbott CELL-DYN® 3200, 400, and Sapphire™; Coulter® LH 75-/LH 755; and Sysmex XE-2100™. Cell-Chex Auto verifies the accuracy at the lower limits of the instrument’s RBC and WBC reportable range. All three levels of Cell-Chex Auto are lower than the low abnormal level of daily hematology controls and calibration material. Cell-Chex Auto is designed to ensure that instrument counts are accurate for patient samples. Cell-Chex Auto is available in 3.0 mL plastic cap-pierceable vials. Each level is packaged separately. This product offers a closed-vial stability of 75 days and an open-vial stability of 30 days. STATS®, a free interlaboratory quality-control program, is offered to qualifying Cell-Chex Auto customers. STATS produces relevant peer-group comparison reports and graphs with a quick turnaround time. Data can be submitted by mail, fax, or e-mail. The reports include customer data, peer-group averages, and computer-generated Levey-Jennings graphs.
