Exigo hematology analyzer, 17 parameters

Exigo hematology analyzer, 17 parameters

Hematology analyzer production Boule Medical, designed foruse in veterinary medicine of different types of animals.

Combining many of the characteristics of the large Swelab Alfa models, it also includes an ultra-modern measuring system, high speed and an easy-to-use touch-screen interface. Exigo is one of the most popular hematology analyzers in Europe. Exigo is ideal for laboratories where routine research is necessary and where the speed of research should not be at the expense of quality.

The Exigo system is a fully automated hematology analyzer designed to measure 17 parameters using whole blood from an open tube and 20 μl of a microcapillary.

Due to the unique Swedish technology and composition of reagents, this device uses only 2 reagents + 1 cleaning, (isotonic, licensing, cleaning) in minimum quantities, which saves almost 2 times on reagent costs and quickly recoup the device itself!

The unique function of the microcapillary adapter allows you to do a complete blood count using 20μL capillary blood, according to 17 parameters without prior dilution. The device is also capable of working with open tubes (whole blood). The device stores in memory at least 1000 patient samples.

The built-in mixer in the apparatus for 6 tubes of various types allows not to acquire an additional mixer for centrifuging.

The Exigo hematology analyzer is programmed to record any blood test results that have deviations from the normal level. Any minor deviations will be noticed by the unit.

The risk of contamination of the internal parts of the analyzer is minimized by the automatic washing system of the device.

Features of the automatic Exigo 17 hematology analyzer:

  • blood test for 12 species of animals: cat, dog, cow, sheep, goat, mouse, ferret, rabbit, horse, rat, pig, camel
  • Built-in microcapillary adapter for accurate and fast analysis, allowing to minimize the volume of blood collection to 20 µl
  • built-in mixer for 6 samples, allowing you to mix different types of tubes
  • color touch screen
  • built-in quality control program.

 Features of the automatic Exigo hematology analyzer:

  • fully automatic system with 17 parameters
  • at least 12 profiles of animals with possible programming of new profiles (dog, cat, sheep, rabbit, polecats, horse, pig, camel, cow, rat, mouse, goat)
  • the built-in mixer for 6 test tubes of 3 different sizes
  • mode of blood sampling from open tubes or from a capillary with a capacity of 20 μl. without breeding
  • color touch display
  • dynamic veterinary mode of leukocyte differentiation depending on the animal profile.
  • built-in system to prevent contamination by blood clots.

When analyzing samples, system software can display three types of information. The information is intended to guide and assist the user in hematological studies. These three types are as follows:

  • Low and high pathological results - a message about the patient's pathological results or those outside the specified range of control results with an L or H mark.
  • Pathology of the sample - messages about the need for additional diagnostics or hematological procedures using this sample.
  • System information - messages on the verification of certain aspects of the functioning of the system.
