COULTER® LH 750 Hematology Analyzer
"Although not Beckman Coulter's top-end machines anymore, the LH750 remain reliable workhorses that churn out accurate and precise blood counts with the robust and low maintenance profile necessary in a clinical laboratory.
1- Few clinical issues with most of the common parameters.
2- The research population data (VCS technology) allows analysis of exotic leukocyte properties and generates publishable data from something as mundane and everyday as the CBC.
3- Reagent supply is prompt and reliable.
4- Beckman has an extensive and responsive network with very pleasant technical staff to facilitate R&D.
1- Lacks an optical platelet count (you get it in similar level machines), hence lower range platelet counts can be tricky.
2- We have had issues with the reticulocyte count (false low values on the machine).
3- Saving the complete VCS data (including scatter plots) is cumbersome.
I would unhesitatingly recommend the LH750 to a colleague."
