PC100™ Platelet Counter
The PC100 Platelet Counter is a highly portable point-of-care device that accurately counts cells (platelets / thrombocytes) in minutes.
The automatic cell counter for thrombocytes or platelets is able to accurately count platelet concentrations in whole blood as well as in Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) up to 10x baseline. The platelet counter is a device which removes the need to count thrombocytes manually and is a cost effective, small and a flexible alternative to flowcytometers. The measurement principle is based on patented optical technology. All parts that come into contact with blood are disposable – no contamination, no cleaning time. The total blood sample preparation and automatic counting is done within 15 minutes.
Full platelet count including blood sample preparation within 15 minutes.
Highly accurate, reproducible and medically validated by Maastricht University Hospital.
EASY TO OPERATE
The device uses disposable counting slides which is fast, clean and accurate.
COUNTS LOW TO HIGH
It counts from 20 to 600 platelets per nl in whole blood or PRP. Also counts higher concentrations (validation pending).
