Introducing Cellavision DC-1
Custom-designed to modernize the process of performing blood cell differentials in low-volume laboratories.

CellaVision DC-1 is a revolutionary hematology analyzer that is custom-designed to optimize the process of performing blood cell differentials in low-volume labs. It effectively automates and simplifies the work that is traditionally done by Medical Technologists using conventional microscopy. CellaVision has a proven track-record of helping larger labs transform this important routine procedure and now the time has come to close the technology gap and enable smaller labs to benefit from the same set of well-documented operational and clinical implementation benefits.

A new standard for morphological assessments

CellaVision DC-1 establishes a more standardized testing process and helps reduce the negative impact of subjective interpretations and assessments. Artificial intelligence is employed to deliver a pre-classification of WBCs and a pre-characterisation of RBC morphology - providing the Medical Technologist with a standardized and reliable decision support framework.

CellaVision DC-1 helps you to work smarter and perform better

Our methodology offers your lab four principal benefits; the improved EFFICIENCY that comes with automating manual processes, enhanced QUALITY of results by promoting consistency and standardization; improved CONNECTIVITY that facilitates remote collaboration and consultation; and a general advancement of your staff’s PROFICIENCY in performing cell differentials.

Implementation routes

The CellaVision DC-1 Analyzer is developed to support multiple implementation approaches

Approach 1 CellaVision DC-1 can be implemented in a small autonomous lab wanting to modernize and improve the process of performing blood cell differentials. The adaptation of CellaVision’s digital methodology saves time and makes it possible to set-up new process support mechanisms, such as an escalation process for difficult cases using external pathology services.

Approach 2 CellaVision DC-1 can also be implemented in a small lab that’s part of a Distributed Laboratory Network; making it possible to pursue one, or a combination. of the below workflow principles./p>
Mode of operation

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.

To perform a manual differential, a thin film of blood is wedged on a barcoded glass slide and stained according to the May-Grünwald Giemsa or Wright protocol. During slide processing the analyzer automatically locates, digitally captures and pre-classifies cells, after which the operator verifies and/ or modifies the suggested classification if necessary. The operator may also introduce additional observations and comments when needed.

  • Automatically captures digital images of cells from blood smears
  • Loading Capacity of 1 slides
  • Approximately 10 slides throughput / h*
  • Creates digital scan of pre-defined area of any interesting specimen
