Sysmex America, Inc., a diagnostic solutions company offering hematology, urinalysis, information systems, and flow cytometry testing technology for optimal clinical laboratory performance, announced the availability of its PS-10TM Sample Preparation System for use in flow cytometry. The highly automated and flexible PS-10, designed for complex laboratory tests and routine flow applications, provides clinical labs a new level of workflow efficiency and confidence in results.
One of the most important but labor-intensive activities of clinical flow laboratories is sample preparation. The PS-10 automates sample preparation, alleviating primary operational bottlenecks in busy clinical flow laboratories, as well as eliminating variability between different operators. The PS-10 also offers programmable sample preparation for antibody cocktailing and reduces the amount of manual transfer of samples performed by laboratory staff.
“By spending less time on preparation and more time on interpretation, our new PS-10 will help our customers leverage laboratory talent in a way that is both more impactful on patients and more satisfying for laboratory professionals,” said Ralph Taylor, chief executive officer of Sysmex America. “Specimen processing on the PS-10 is flexible enough to integrate with a laboratory’s existing standard operating procedures,” Taylor said.
Available now in the United States and Canada, laboratory professionals using the PS-10 can choose from a broad portfolio of reagents to create the perfect panel for their diagnostic needs.
