Sysmex America, Inc., a leading diagnostic solutions company has launched its first fully automated urine particle counter and digital imaging system, the UN-2000. The company known for hematology, urinalysis, and flow cytometry testing technology improves clinical laboratory performance. The Sysmex’s UN-2000 combines urine flow cytometry with digital imaging to provide an efficient process for urine sediment analysis with negligible human intervention time and greater accuracy.
The UN-2000 is designed to provide efficiency. The high-quality images clicked by the digital camera make the analysis process more manageable. Furthermore, the users can quickly determine the pathogenic cells eliminating the use of the microscope. The user-definable rule settings, urine data manager (UDM), and intelligent data management gives control to the labs to function accurately. The UN-2000 uses fluorescence flow cytometry to deliver highly accurate particle quantitation and differentiation. The system also reduces time-consuming hands-on review through standardization criteria with high reproducibility, automatic validation, and quantitative measurement.
Andy Hay, the Chief Operating Officer, said, “Today’s laboratories are pressured to produce accurate, valid, and high-quality results that provide clinical value to the physician, all while meeting turnaround time expectations with less staff and tightened budgets,” said Andy Hay, chief operating officer of Sysmex America. “The UN-2000 meets the needs of today’s labs with scalable automation and new levels of standardization, quality assurance, and workflow efficiency.”
The system automates functions to a certain extent such as data entry, reduces clerical errors, and specimen-handling requirements. The modularity and flexible configurations of the UN-2000 increase the output and allow the user to upscale or downscale according to the need. The UN-2000 is now available in the United States and Canada offering its quality control with Beyond Care Quality Monitor (BCQM). The BCQM elegantly aligns the process of reviewing results and running controls improving analyzer timeframe. Compliance is simplified with the help of color-coded alerts that track and interpret quality control.
Sysmex America is transforming the future of healthcare by offering diagnostic solutions and contributes to healthier lives. As the affiliates of the Japan-based Sysmex Corporation, they are reshaping the healthcare sector with the help of their hematology, urinalysis, and flow cytometry testing technology.
