Haematology

Haematology is a branch of medical science that studies the morphology of blood and blood-forming tissues. It covers the cellular composition of blood, blood cell formation, haemoglobin synthesis and all related disorders. Haematological parameters are widely used to support diagnoses and treatment monitoring.

Haematology studies red and white blood cells and platelets, their relative proportions, general cell health and the diseases caused by imbalances between them. Red blood cells have several important roles, but their most important function is to carry oxygen (O2) and carbon dioxide (CO2). White blood cells are an indispensable part of the body’s immune defence system, while platelets play an essential part in blood coagulation. All cells are necessary, but they must be maintained in the right proportions or systems will break down.

The XN-550 features an automated sampler and so improves workflow productivity with its Rerun & Reflex functionality and continuous loading feature.

This model also has an integrated IPU and is operated via a compact LCD colour touchscreen. XN-550 incorporates the proven Sysmex technologies of fluorescence flow cytometry, hydrodynamic focussing and Sysmex’s cyanide-free SLS method for determining haemoglobin. Ready for the future, it can be upgraded by adding new clinical and productivity values, or by opting for further professional services and connecting to the Extended IPU as demands change.
