Icon 5, a haematology analyser that measures NRL

The Icon-5 is a 5-part differential haematology analyser that uses laser-based flow cytometry with forward-scattered light detection and volumetric impedance measuring method.  It provides a 27-parameter complete blood cell count report that includes RBC and PLT histograms, as well as a 5-part WBC scattergram.

What makes this device special and innovative is its microfluidics technology that reduces reagent consumption.  Furthermore, the Icon-5 has the footprint of about an A4 sheet of paper, this makes it ideal for use in Emergency Departments, ICUs, clinics, blood banks, or perhaps even in mobile care units.
