2 July 2012 17:13 in Scientific Company News
Horiba Medical has announced the European and UK launch of the Microsemi CRP haematology analyser, a compact, easy-to-use addition to the Micros range.
The device - which has already been introduced in Japan with great success - simultaneously provides a complete blood count and C-reactive protein levels from just 18 microlitres of blood in only four minutes.
Its CRP analysis capabilities facilitate the screening of patient samples to detect the presence of inflammation caused by bacterial infections or other treatable inflammatory disease, while it can also be used to monitor progressive conditions.
Cleve Wright, general manager for Horiba Medical in the UK, said: "With over 2,000 instruments successfully being used in Japan to date, UK clinicians can now benefit from the Microsemi CRP's accuracy, convenience and ability to support early and rapid diagnosis of patients."
Earlier this year, the company published a scientific validation study that underlined the benefits of its HemaCAM computer-assisted microscopy module for fully automated analysis of blood smears.
