Sysmex America's UN-2000
Sysmex America this week launched its UN-2000, a urine sediment analysis platform that combines flow cytometry and digital imaging to classify pathogenic cells, essentially eliminating the use of a microscope. According to the firm, the new platform's user-definable rule settings, intelligent data management with Urine Data Manager, and high-quality images produced by a digital camera, provide labs with more control over their process and analysis. The UN-2000 allows for flexible configurations that can increase throughput, as well as scalable options for upsizing and downsizing. The UN-2000 reduces the opportunity for clerical errors, lessens manual data entry, and decreases specimen-handling requirements, the firm added.
