Siemens launched three new haematology systems

Siemens Healthcare has launched three new scalable haematology systems: the ADVIA 360 System, ADVIA 560 System and ADVIA 560 AL System.
The systems offer fast, high quality CBC testing, running up to 60 samples per hour. Automatic anti-clogging and cleaning procedures are employed to ensure results reliability. Along with automated maintenance, this reduces manual procedures and biohazard exposure. Other features include option for manual or automatic calibration procedures, a cap-piercing function for accurate and safer sampling, a multilingual operating menu and bidirectional LIS communication for easy patient data transfer between laboratories and minimised paper-based work lists.
