QBC Hematalogy Analyzer

QBC STAR™ Hematology Analyzer
The QBC STAR is a dry hematology analyzer that delivers a 9-parameter Complete Blood Count with the touch of a button. The STAR’s unique microprocessor performs self-calibration, ensuring accuracy. The STAR comes with 2 rolls of thermal printer paper, screwdriver, forceps, patient ID keyboard, 10 each of 1.8mm and 2.3mm blade lancets, and external power supply and cord. For 120V, 60Hz / 230V, 50Hz operation.

Size and Portability

The QBC STAR Centrifugal Hematology System is extremely compact, measuring a small 16″ x 16″ for the entire self-contained unit. Because its reagent technology is contained within a single tube, the STAR is remarkably portable, and effective in many different testing environments. Installation time is less than 30 seconds, meaning the STAR is ready for use wherever and whenever needed.

The QBC STAR measures nine important CBC hematological parameters from venous or capillary blood samples: hematocrit, hemoglobin, MCHC (mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration), platelet count, white blood cell count, granulocyte count and percentage, and lymphocyte/monocyte count and percentage. Clinical trials have demonstrated that the accuracy and precision of the QBC STAR System correlate well to accepted standard methods.
