Revolution in automation: the modern laboratory and beyond

Since the introduction of Sysmex’s XN-Series in 2011, haematology laboratories have benefitted from its many operational and clinical features. Here, we look at a selection of these benefits and further advances in the field over the coming years.

From smaller ‘satellite’ laboratories to large regional ‘hubs’, there is an XN-Series solution that offers operational efficiency without a compromise on quality. Smaller systems such as the XN-1000 (one blood count analyser) or XN-2000 (two analysers), still allow laboratories to benefit fully from the range of features the XN-Series offers, with all the same haematological analytical benefits of the larger systems. In addition to simply providing blood counts, the XN-3100 increases the level of automation while remaining a benchtop system. This is achieved by combining two XN analysers with an integrated SP-50 for smear preparation and staining, along with the additional possibility to incorporate the Cellavision DI-60 digital imaging system.

                  From medium sized to the largest hospitals, there is an array of possibilities available when designing a bespoke XN-9100 tracked haematology solution. The workflow benefits of the various XN-9100 configurations result from the ability to integrate multiple analyser types into a single EDTA workcell concept. This results in a streamlined process that ensures all EDTA testing can be performed on a first-pass basis without further operator intervention, thus resulting in a leaner and more efficient laboratory.

                  The XN-9100 provides a linear workflow that automatically moves sample racks between the integrated analysers based on the test requests received. Using a flexible and user-definable repeat and reflex rules base, the system automates decisions and ensures that in most cases no operator intervention is required during the entire process, from sample loading to availability of the results.
