HORIBA Medical Introduces HemaCAM® at IBMS Congress 2011
The latest innovation in computer-assisted microscopy
Northampton, UK: HORIBA Medical-UK, has today announced that it will be launching its newest product HemaCAM®, the latest innovation in computer-assisted microscopy at IBMS Congress 2011, 26-28 September, stand F4. HemaCAM® significantly reduces the laboratory work load and simplifies the creation of a quick and objective differential blood count even for more unusual blood samples, through its fully automated analysis of stained blood smears.
To promote error reduction, the system automatically analyses stained blood smears and assists the counting and classification of blood cells. It also has the ability to digitally store all images and differential results in a comprehensive evolutionary adaptable database that is fully traceable and searchable. The database can be customised to suit every laboratory's specific needs and requirements.
HemaCAM's® innovative technology provides laboratories with consistent, high quality diagnosis with the ability to view microscopic cells live in a high resolution. It is future-proofed to provide optimum support for laboratory analysis through additional planned analytical processes including the differentiation of bone marrow and malaria infection.
In addition to benefitting the laboratory, HemaCAM® is well suited for continuing education, in either a one-to-one or group study setting.
HORIBA Medical will be giving exclusive demonstrations of HemaCAM® at IBMS Congress 2011 at stand F4. To register for a demonstration, please contact email@example.com.
