CellaVision® DC-1​​​

A Game Changer for Small Hematology Labs
CellaVision has a proven track-record of helping larger labs transform the important routine procedure of performing blood cell differentials. Now the time has come to close the technology gap and enable smaller labs to benefit from the same set of well-documented operational and clinical implementation benefits, in a compact countertop design.

The CellaVision DC-1 is designed to automate and simplify the process of performing blood cell differentials in low-volume laboratories. The system leverages high-speed robotics and digital imaging to automatically locate and capture high quality images of cells. It allows both standalone and networked installation.

CellaVision DC-1 offers your lab four principal benefits:

  • Improved efficiency that comes with automating manual processes
  • Enhanced quality of results by promoting consistency and standardization
  • Improved connectivity that facilitates remote collaboration and consultation
  • Advancement of your staff’s proficiency in performing cell differential

  • Capture digital images of cells from blood smears
  • Automate the analysis of WBCs, RBCs and PLTs
  • Create digital scans of any interesting specimen
  • Compact design with small foot print

CellaVision DC-1 helps you to work smarter and perform better.

Our methodology offers your lab four principal benefits; the improved efficiency that comes with automating manual processes, enhanced quality of results by promoting consistency and standardization; improved connectivity that facilitates remote collaboration and consultation; and a general advancement of your staff’s proficiency in performing cell differentials.

Improve Efficiency
When performing cell differentials using manual microscopy, there are several sub-processes that take up valuable technologist time. Using the CellaVision DC-1 analyzer that automatically locates, digitally captures, pre-classifies and presents cells for review on-screen, it’s possible to reduce both sample review and turnaround time.

Promote Quality
The CellaVision DC-1 analyzer establishes a more standardized testing process that enables small labs to perform blood differentials with consistent accuracy and reliability. The pre-classification delivered by the analyzer provides the medical laboratory professional with a standardized and reliable decision support framework that actively promotes quality. Testing quality is further enhanced by enabling collaboration with off-site colleagues, supervisors and pathologists.

Improve Connectivity
By implementing CellaVision’s digital methodology, small labs can connect the process of performing cell differentials with the outside world. With CellaVision, technologists can collaborate with off-site colleagues, supervisors and morphology experts. Challenging slides needing a second opinion can be reviewed by a pathologist in minutes.

Promote Proficiency
The CellaVision way of working promotes proficiency and competency by providing the medical laboratory professional with reference cell images, by presenting cells side-by-side in complete groups, and by establishing a collaborative environment where medical laboratory professionals learn from real-time consultation with more experienced colleagues, supervisors and pathologists based off-site.
