Coulter S-Cal Calibrator is a quick and convenient product designed to simplify the calibration of your Beckman Coulter Hematology system. S-Cal calibrator provides parameter values traceable to reference methods ensuring accuracy of results and promoting better patient care.
Intended Use: S-CAL Calibrator is intended for the determination of calibration factors for COULTER hematology analyzers listed in the TABLE OF EXPECTED RESULTS in conjunction with specific COULTER reagents. Refer to your Product Manual or Online Help System.
Summary and Principle: COULTER instruments, for which this kit was designed, require a calibrator to convert electronic measurements of each sample into accurate results expressed in clinical terms.
The parameters (WBC, RBC, HGB, MCV, PLT and MPV) are calibrated using S-CAL Calibrator, a stabilized human-blood preparation. S-CAL Calibrator is an acceptable alternative to whole-blood calibration.
The calibration procedure uses replicate measurements of S-CAL Calibrator. The average result for each parameter is divided into the S-CAL Calibrator Assigned Value to give a calibration factor.
Hct, MCH, MCHC, RDW and DIFF parameters do not require calibration.
