Nihon Kohden introduces Celltac Alpha MEK-6400 series hematology analyzers

June 5, 2006

TOKYO, JAPAN - Nihon Kohden Corporation introduces Celltac Alpha MEK-6400 series hematology analyzers. These fully automated hematology analyzers have 18 parameters, 3-part WBC differential and panic values.

The new Celltac Alpha analyzers are gentle on both the patient and the environment. Measurement only requires 10 or 30 microliters of blood. Optional cap-pierce allows use of sealed tubes which greatly reduce the chance of touching blood. Non-cyan diluent is much easier on the environment.

Celltac Alpha provides many convenient features in a compact body such as self-check at power on, automatic cleaning at power off, electric clog removal after each measurement, notice of remaining reagent levels, and detailed information about abnormal values. Celltac Alpha is ideal for facilities that don't require high volume measurement.

Nihon Kohden is Japan's largest manufacturer and distributor of medical electronic equipment. For more information, visit the Company's web site at
