Compact automated hematology analyzers, the XS series have been developed. The XS-1000i is a closed blood col-lection tube model and the XS-800i is an open tube model. These analyzers can simultaneously measure a 5-part leukocyte differential count ( WBC 5 DIFF ), in addition to complete blood count ( CBC ). They were built on the technologies of our top model, the XE-2100 Automated Hematology Analyzer. They were developed for medium and small laboratories or for the testing which can be performed at or near the patients' locations such as out-patient facilities. Small-sized and high-performance devices have been created with scattergrams and reagents that are compatible with XE-2100. We shall introduce the summary of this XS series together with some basic data.
