WHO Prequalification of CD4 Instrument

The AQUIOS CL flow cytometer has been accepted by the World Health Organization (WHO) Prequalification of In Vitro Diagnostics Programme. It can now be used specifically for the immunologic assessment of patients having, or suspected of having, immune deficiency.

Freeing up Your Skilled Operators

Many traditional flow-cytometry systems require either manual or semi-automated preparation of samples, manual creation of work lists, manual data review, and manual tabulation of numerical data.

The PLG Breakthrough from South Africa

Monitoring CD4 lymphocyte counts is essential in providing critical information that impacts patient care.

Minimizing the Potential for User Error

Laboratory standards and regulations set forth by governmental bodies such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) help to define and standardize the procedures that laboratories employ.
