New haemostasis workflow solutions offer enhanced immunology testing

The CN-3000 and CN-6000 models from Sysmex are joined by the CN-3500 and CN-6500 systems to provide laboratories with advanced immunological testing capabilities, and connectivity of these systems by the intelligent Laboratory Automation solution.

Haemostasis testing has experienced a dramatic change over the last 50 years. Since the 1950s up to the early 1990s, coagulation tests were performed manually by many laboratories. Reagents were manufactured ‘in-house’ by the laboratory staff of larger hospitals processing animal or human brains in a batch-wise fashion. These reagents were then used in the respective coagulation test such as prothrombin time (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) and other global coagulation tests. Equipped with a centrifuge, a stopwatch, a pipette, a water bath and a test tube, the laboratory staff used these ‘in-house’ reagents to determine the clotting capability of a patient sample.1

In 1984, Sysmex Corporation released the CA-100, to standardise and optimise coagulation testing using scattered light for optical end-point clot detection. Through the 1990s, instruments were improved, enlarged and expanded so that not only coagul
