i3LAB

Overview

i3LAB: A 3-diff hematology analyzer with closed vial sampling designed for labs

The i3LABis a smart, 3-part differential hematology analyzer with closed vial sampling with innovative and handy design. The i3LAB provides a 22-parameter complete blood cell count report that includes WBC, RBC and PLT histograms, using volumetric impedance method for detection of red blood cells (RBC) and white blood cells (WBC) and photometric method for the measurement of hemoglobin (HGB) levels.

The i3LAB was primarily developed to be used in laboratory environments as it provides a 80 tests/hour throughput and is compatible with the Norma Autoloader to offer effective support in the everyday work of the laboratory personnel. It does not only have a compact size, low reagent consumption – using only two reagents – and small sampling volume processing, but it also doesn’t require any weekly maintenance action from the user.
