GloCyte Automated CSF Cell Counter

The GloCyte Automated CSF Cell Counter can handle all CSF specimens – even those with clinically relevant low cell counts that fall below the linearity of other automated analyzers. With the ability to detect down to 1 cell/µL and deliver total nucleated cell (TNC) and red blood cell (RBC) results in less than 5-minutes using only 30 µL per test, GloCyte gives hematology labs a reliable and efficient method for automating analysis of all CSF specimens, improving results consistency and turnaround time, compared to the manual hemocytometer method.
