Norma Icon-5

Icon-5: A smart, 5-diff solution with cutting edge technology

The Icon-5 is a smart, 5-part differential hematology analyzer that sets new standards in terms of features, functions and style. This iconic laboratory device combines cutting edge technology with a fresh and elegant design. The Icon 5 uses laser based flow cytometry with forward-scattered light detection and volumetric impedance measuring method. It provides a 26-parameter complete blood cell count report that includes RBC and PLT histograms, as wells as a 5-part WBC scattergram.

What makes this device special and innovative is its microfluidics technology that enables reagent consumption to be reduced by approximately 75% compared to other analyzers on the market. Furthermore, the Icon-5 has one of the smallest dimensions (283 x 226 x 333 mm) within its class, which allows it to be used in Emergency Departments, ICUs, private clinics, blood banks, or perhaps even in mobile care units. The Norma Icon-5 is changing the hematology landscape: there is no other analyzer like the Icon.
