A 20 µl sample is all that’s needed to obtain a full CBC within one minute. Exigo’s MPA micro-pipette adapter – a unique feature among veterinary hematology analyzers today – is ideal for pets, especially kittens, puppies and other small animals, or when you need a synovial fluid sample.
Sampling is smooth and trouble-free for all concerned. Simply take a sample from the limb or paw, draw blood into the 20 μl micro-capillary, slide the tube into the adapter and insert into the analyzer. The analysis starts automatically.
Less than one minute later, you see the full blood screen on the touch-sensitive display in front of you. There’s no preparation required, no pre-dilution, no vacuum tubes and no needles. It’s that simple.
1. Take the blood sample and draw up 20 μl into a K2 EDTA-coated micro-capillary.
2. Slide the tube into the adapter and insert in the analyzer.
3. Read the results – less than a minute later.
Animal blood specimens have a tendency to clot and block flow paths. Any hematology analyzer that cannot deal with this issue thus faces significant problems. Exigo minimizes this risk.
The system features a built-in probe flush plus an on-board panel of reagents that includes an enzymatic cleaner that inhibits blood clots as well protein build up or bacterial growth.
Automated operation ensures that your system is always kept in top working condition.
Exigo analyzers require no regular user maintenance. Moving parts like syringes or peristaltic pumps that prove problematic in other systems have been replaced with high-quality, low-maintenance, service-free components such as a shear-valve.
In addition, Exigo performs self-maintenance and testing automatically, which also contributes to low and predictable maintenance costs.
Exigo and Exigo eos model has an advanced software with profiles for different species. Every profile uses a dynamic approach on how to analyze the sample for most accurate result.
A 4-part WBC differential from animal blood provides a great deal of important information, yet it is recognized as one of the more problematic parameters to measure. Exigo’s eos analyzer overcomes this difficulty by employing an extra reagent for specifically measuring eosinophil granulocytes. This generates the most accurate 4-part differential result available.
Exigo combines the convenience of pre-installed animal analysis profiles with the flexibility to develop your own. The twelve pre-installed are: Dog, Cat, Horse, Cow, Ferret, Rabbit, Sheep, Rat, Mouse, Pig, New World Camel and Goat.
New profiles for other species are also available as product updates. Up to 20 animal profiles can be stored and used in Exigo at the same time.
Exigo features many user-friendly functions that simplify everyday operation. A built-in mixer with a capacity of six tubes of various sizes provides superior sample handling (important for result quality) and saves bench space.
An external barcode reader connection opens up the possibility to scan and enter vital assay information such as expected values, expiry dates, lot numbers, etc. Fast, smart and fool-proof.
The system’s self-intuitive touch-screen tabs, buttons and explanations are both clear and descriptive. With Result Bar View, for example, you can see at a glance if results are within range.
Alternatively, choose the traditional view with graphs, parameters, alerts, etc. And instead of mysterious flags and strange error codes, Exigo’s i-button gives users clear hematological guidelines with recommended actions and key system information messages.
All the information you want – easy-to-understand results plus quality management data and hematology guidelines.
Exigo veterinary hematology system is part of a Total Quality Concept (TQC) that comprises instruments, reagents, quality control materials and service, all from the same supplier – an unbroken chain of know-how in quality animal hematology measurements.
