The Norma Icon is a portable 3 or 5 part differential hematology analyzer. It has a footprint of an A4 sheet of paper and can process closed or open vials with a throughput of 60 tests per hour.
The design enables the Norma Icon to directly measure capillary blood samples collected in BD Microtainer® MAP. This tube is used for capillary collections from skin punctures for instance heels on infants or fingers on small children. It holds between 250 and 500 μl of blood.
