Providing a high degree of flexibility, the new Pentra XLR has a microsampling system requiring only 53µl of blood for FBC and 35µl for full reticulocyte analysis making it ideal for paediatric or other small samples. The reticulocyte channel utilizes Thiazole Orange technology, providing a full maturity profile in addition to a highly accurate reticulocyte count. It is also compatible with ABX Pentra ML data management, facilitating simple integration into existing systems.
Three quality control levels
The new Pentra XLR is built on the same proven reticulocyte technology as HORIBA’s higher throughput Pentra analyzers, ensuring quality and full compatibility of results and reagents. With three quality control levels for all parameters, this robust and reliable platform also provides complete data traceability on-board and integrated validation to ensure total peace of mind for the user.
High quality detailed analysis
“The Pentra XLR enhances laboratory productivity, flexibility and quality, adding value to any hematology laboratory,” said Cleve Wright, HORIBA UK. “By incorporating full reticulocyte analytical capabilities, the Pentra XLR delivers high quality detailed analysis for highly accurate patient diagnosis on a compact platform.”
