This is an assayed hemocytometer control for manual cell counts. Works great!
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area: Hematology

"Great product. We needed to start running a hemocytometer/cytocentrifuge control for manual cell counts and differentials. This is now required by our accrediting agency. We are pleased with the ease of use and assayed values that ensure our technical staff is performing testing accurately."

Very convenient to have one control for all of our manual cell count tests.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Used when manual cell counts are performed and/or crystal examination performed

"Easy to use and handled exactly like patient samples. Like that cell count and crystal are all performed on the same controls."

Keeps our techs consistent and accurate.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Hemocytometer manual counting

"We've used Streck Cell-Chex for the past 10 or so years, rarely do we experience an order that is delayed. The controls have a lengthyh expiration dates which makes it ideal for labs with a lower volume for body fluids, but still must maintain competent QC records."

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
