Saving precious time with automated blood cell analysis

Millions of blood samples are taken from patients every day around the world to diagnose disease.

These blood samples need to be analyzed in a laboratory and the faster this happens, the faster a patient can get a diagnosis and treatment.


The CellaVision DC-1 analyzer for digital cell morphology replaces the traditional microscope.



A glass slide with a blood smear is placed in the CellaVision DC-1 analyzer and the system collects blood cell images to assist with disease detection. Every cell image is assessed with artificial intelligence and a suggestion on the cell type is provided.


The digital images can be remotely accessed for faster expert review. This automated workflow saves precious time for medical staff and patients.

The CellaVision DC-1 analyzer can be implemented stand-alone in a small independent lab or in the small satellite labs of a Distributed Laboratory Network.  It has a loading capacity of 1 slide and the approximate throughput time is 10 slides per hour*.
