In recent years, automated hematology analyzers have come into widespread use in veterinary clinics and hospitals. However, WBC differentiation still relies on visual observation with a microscope. Users have evaluated our Automated Hematology Analyzer pocH-100i V very favorably since its launch about two and a half years ago. Nevertheless, there has been a strong demand for the development of a hematology analyzer that could give differential WBC counts simultaneously with the 8 parameters of the Complete Blood Count ( CBC ). In response to this demand, we developed the Automated Hematology Analyzer pocH-100i V Diff, which is capable of analyzing the 8 CBC parameters as well as differential WBC counts, together with the hemolyzing reagent pocH-pack LVD meant exclusively for differential WBC analysis. We describe the functions and performance of this analyzer.
