"This is a very reliable machine that I saw in our clinical rotation site in MD Anderson. However, I still dedicate personnel to stand by in case of any artefact blocking the photo-taking beam. The user interface is self-explanatory. I would definitely recommend using this machine anyway."

Application Area: blood group typing and antibody screens Galileo ECHO Blood Bank Analyzer
"At our facility the Galileo ECHO does not automatically connect with the laboratory system, so first we must enter the patient information manually which can be time consuming and prone to error during busy times. I am thankful that the system prompts you to enter the information twice in order to try and reduce clerical error. Overall, I really like using the Galileo ECHO analyzer, we use the analyzer to do routine blood group good typing, although our current policy took out the use of week D testing. We also use the analyzer for antibody screening, and identification. I like that we can use additional select cells, since this adds to cells that can be used to rule out antibodies before the need to manually use select cells. And definitely decreases the amount of time to identify complex antibodies."
"Automated crossmatching saves time in the lab. 20-30 minutes daily maintenance. 15 panel antibody screen can be very useful."
Life in the blood bank lab is more demanding than ever. More than ever, you're asked to answer the call for a faster, more accurate, higher volume and better functioning lab, all with fewer human resources - test by test, minute by minute, day by day.
Immucor, a world leader in blood bank automation, has heard the call, from big labs and small labs, all over the globe. And we've answered with Galileo Echo - a third generation instrument designed to help blood banks of all sizes, and volumes answer their call. For better technology. Higher functionality. More flexibility and speed. Better control.
