Great product for training students and new techs!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Body fluid cell count control

"This supply came in very handy when it came to training techs and students on manual body fluids and crystals! It gives great bang for your buck because it has WBCs, RBCs, CPPD Crystals, and MSU Crystals all in one little kit. It is also good for competency checks."

Cell-Chex is a cerebrospinal and body fluid manual procedural control for red blood cell (RBC) and white blood cell (WBC) counts, urate and CPPD crystal identification and white blood cell differentiation. The white blood cells in Cell-Chex are human to better mimic patient samples. When stained in the same manner as a patient sample, the technologist can differentiate granulocyte, lymphocyte and monocyte populations. The differential assay offers polymorphonuclear and mononuclear values and 5-part white cell differential values.

It is the only manual body fluid control that contains crystals to aid in crystal identification in synovial fluid samples. Crystals can be easily identified without interfering with RBC and WBC counts using a hemacytometer or WBC differential counts using a cytocentrifuge smear.

Features

  • Only body fluid control assayed for the 5-part WBC differential
  • Contains human white blood cells
  • Only body fluid control that contains crystals
  • Multi-level control
  • 30-day open-vial stability
  • 6-month closed-vial stability

Benefits

  • Helps clinical laboratories meet quality requirements for manual body fluid analysis
  • Validates the entire cell qualification and quantification procedure
  • Easy to use, as it looks similar to a patient sample
  • Long shelf life reduces the number of shipments and associated costs
  • Access to STATS®, a free interlaboratory quality control program with peer group data comparison and online submission
