New Analyser for University of Chester
Oct 05 2016 Read 942 Times
Beckman Coulter has installed the first DxH 500 haematology analyser in the UK at the University of Chester’s Institute of Medicine on the Countess of Chester Health Park. This fully automated haematology system will be used in post graduate clinical research projects, with many being undertaken in collaboration with the nearby Countess of Chester Hospital. Due to the proximity of the facility to the hospital, a wide range of normal and pathologically-abnormal blood samples will be available for analysis which will enhance the scope and quality of research projects.
“We needed an analyser that was reliable and simple to use by research students, while still able to provide comprehensive results for in-depth clinical research projects using both whole blood and cell separations,” explained Jasmine Stanley-Ahmed, Lab Technician, at the University of Chester’s Institute of Medicine. “As our experience with Beckman Coulter analysers has been so good, when we heard of the launch of the DxH 500, we were confident enough to buy it unseen. We are especially pleased that, as well as being compact, it offers full five-part diff, which enables even more scope for our research!”
Jasmine added that the system required only minimal training for new users and that all haematology results obtained were fully comparable with the main hospital labarotory’s high volume DxH 800 Haematology Workcel.
