Six-part hematology analyzer (Sysmex XN 1000) equipped with three dyes for reliable, accurate and repeatable complete blood counts.
- Over 40 reportable and 60 research parameters. 2400 sample through automated one stop solution
- Barcoded samples & Interfaced with HMS to reduce errors
- A diverse and advanced modes for Platelet count with optical and Fluorescence methods.
- Reticulocyte parameters like Ret-He for diagnosis and treatment monitoring.
- Ability to suspect Malaria and Dengue based on new parameters and scatter plot interpretation.
High performance Liquid Chromatopgraphy (HPLC):
To cater to the needs of the community and to support the Thalassemia clinic in addition to the Blood bank support,using HPLC to screen and diagnose the cases.
A total of two projects are being done with the help of this technology to better understand the prevalence in the catchment area of medical college hospital.
