Norma iVet-5

iVet-5: a must for all veterinary clinics

The iVet-5 is Norma’s hematology analyzer for veterinary use. This smart, laser-based 5-part differential hematology analyzer with open tube sampling mode can give precise complete cell blood count results for six animal species at the moment: dog, cat, horse, foal, camel, guinea pig. These animal profiles are continuously expending, and Norma will provide more measurement options in the future.

The iVet-5 inherited the Icon hematology family's all excellent features:

  • compact size - the size of a A4 paper sheet
  • easy maneuverability – touch screen with simple interface navigation
  • low sample volume processing – 2x 1.4 μl
  • small reagent consumption – 75% less than any other analyzer’s consumption on the market
  • low user maintenance requirements – no weekly maintenance actions

These features allow this unique veterinary analyzer to be used at the measurement site and open new diagnostic option for veterinary clinic.
