"We were looking for a better method to measure Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rates for our neonate and pediatric population. Around the same time, a Streck representative reached out to let me know about a new product they were introducing - the Mini-Cube. We scheduled a demo and right away I could see that it fit our needs. You only need 500uL of whole blood, using a microtainer, and it measures the ESR in the original collection container without using any of the actual sample, so you can remix it and use it for a CBC afterwards. It does a good job with standard sized vacutainers as well. After delivery, the Streck team reached out to go through the set up process over the phone, which was pretty easy. They offered great customer service and even helped with correlation to our old method. I definitely recommend this little analyzer if you're looking for something to replace the old-fashioned Westergren method. Oh, and it can interface to an LIS, too."
