BIT SMART5Part

What is this instrument?

SMART5Part is small footprint benchtop 5-Part differential (5DIF) hematology analyzer designed to perform at 60 tests per hour throughput. It features a brand new LED based flow cytometry optical bench that enables a full optical 5-Part differential with enhanced clusters definition.

It is based on patented fluidics concepts which enables permanent tubing connections, greatly eased maintenance and exceptionally high reliability. Each fluidics part is designed taking into account need for reduced maintenance.

Maintenance for the end users has also been simplified with minimal tubing visible to the end user. Molded parts are used as much as possible to reduce the cost of the instruments much as possible.

SMART5Part is a 5-Part differential (5DIF) hematology analyzer.

What you should know about the BIT SMART5PART?

SMART5Part proposes a new 5-population differentiation based on flow cytometry concept allowing a low-cost 5DIF instrument with very good sensitivity and specificity regarding white blood cells 5-population differentiation.

This new patent pending technology makes the SMART5Part a unique instrument with small footprint and very precise 5DIF measurement at low cost. While flow cytometers are usually expensive due complex fluidics, the new design embodies a low cost flow cytometer type principle allowing accurate and precise measurements.

This 5DIF technology is remarkably unique. Based on several patents combining optics, fluidics and chemistry it allows the use of very few components in comparison to other instruments with multiple valves and baths to ensure the same measurement principle.

Making Smart5Part such a reliable, performant and cost effective instrument was a challenge achieved after more than 20 years of experience in hematology systems.
