2020 MEK-1305 Celltac α+: World's first Automated Hematology and ESR Analyzer

Automated Hematology and ESR Analyzer

MEK-1305 is the world’s first hematology analyzer which can measure complete blood count (CBC) including white blood cell 3-part differential and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) simultaneously.
The conventional ESR measurement method takes at least 60 minutes to read the result, but MEK-1305 realizes simultaneous ESR and CBC measurement in as short a time as approx. 2 minutes. Since the test results can be confirmed immediately after blood drawing, it is expected to contribute to the accurate diagnosis of disease conditions and decision-making for treatment in clinical practice.
