ProCyte Dx Analyzer
Laser flow cytometryLaser flow cytometry delivers an advanced five-part white blood cell differential. The ProCyte Dx Hematology Analyzer uses laser flow cytometry to perform a full analysis of multiple characteristics of each white blood cell, for the most accurate interpretation of all five white blood cell types.
Optical fluorescenceOptical fluorescence provides a highly sensitive and accurate reticulocyte count with the use of specific fluorescent stains. Feline platelets are analyzed with this method to ensure superior separation when delineating platelets and red blood cells of similar size.
Laminar Flow Impedance
Laminar Flow Impedance performs the fastest and most precise count of red blood cells for quick and accurate analysis. With advanced Laminar Flow Impedance technology, cells are lined up one by one to ensure each cell is characterized individually.
27 Whole-blood parameters*RBC (red blood cell count)
RETIC (% and #) (reticulocyte count, percentage of reticulocytes)
RETIC-HGB (reticulocyte hemoglobin)
MCV (mean cell volume)
RDW (red blood cell distribution width)
MCH (mean cell hemoglobin)
MCHC (mean cell hemoglobin concentration)
PLT (platelet count)
MPV (mean platelet volume)
PDW (platelet distribution width)
PCT (platelet hematocrit)
WBC (white blood cell count)
Monocytes (% and #)
Lymphocytes (% and #)
Neutrophils (% and #)
Eosinophils (% and #)
Basophils (% and #)
Band Neutrophils (when presence suspected)
nRBCs (nucleated red blood cells—when presence suspected)
InflammationBand neutrophils are noted when they are suspected to be present in a sample. Their presence is the single best indicator of inflammation.
Nucleated red blood cells (nRBCs)
Bone marrow damage and excess RBC productionNucleated red blood cells are noted when suspected to be present in a sample. These cells indicate bone marrow damage or extreme increases in red blood cell production, both of which prompt quick action.
