Fully automated slide preparation and staining system
- Fully automated and standardised slide preparation and staining.
- Consistent quality of blood smears through an automated adjustment to up to 16 different sample haematocrit ranges.
- Seamless integration into XN-1500, XN-3100 and XN-9100.
- Shorter turnaround time thanks to shorter staining times (compared with SP-10) and track connection.
- One/two-dimension bar-coded sample identification printer on the frosted area of the slide.
- Micro samples operation and Raised Bottom Tubes.
The Sysmex automated slide preparation and staining system SP-50 standardises and accelerates the complete slide preparation and staining procedure of human whole blood samples. The SP-50 is equipped with the very latest technology to produce a consistent, high-quality blood smear.
With an intelligent wedge method allowing user-definable settings for sample volume, speed, and angle of the spreader blade, the SP-50 produces blood films auto-adapted to the HCT value of each blood sample. The length of the blood smear guarantees a particularly wide monolayer area for performing the blood cell differential count.
Optimisation of a high-quality blood film and staining is guaranteed using the RAL classic stains in combination with the RAL buffer and Sysmex SP-Rinse. The RAL staining dyes and buffer enable stable and reproducible staining results and have excellent long-term stability.
The SP-50 is scalable and flexible, and available in two configurations: SP-50 S (Standard) with a sample throughput of up to 30 slides per hour and the SP-50 H (High Speed) with a sample throughput of up to 75 samples per hour (excluding staining time). The two versions serve laboratories from the lower mid-market to the high-end market segment. Multiple SP-50 H systems can be installed in an XN-9100 configuration.
- Variable dilution ratios of staining reagents.
- Dedicated staining bath technology.
- No direct contact with the blood sample.
- User-friendly and easy handling.
- Fast and improved smear workflow.
- Shorter staining times (compared with SP-10).
- Minimal routine maintenance.
- Consistency in analysis quality.
- Better diagnostics due to improved cell classification.
