GloCyte® Reagents

Formulated Specifically for GloCyte

Fluorescence Technology, Highly Specific Reagents, and an Intelligent Counting Algorithm to Handle All CSF Samples

GloCyte is an automated cell counter that delivers accurate and precise total nucleated cell (TNC) and red blood cell (RBC) results at clinically relevant low levels, reducing valuable time spent counting those more difficult specimens. Using a novel combination of fluorescence technology, highly specific reagents, and an intelligent counting algorithm, GloCyte can handle all of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) specimens that enter your laboratory.

Highlighted features
  • Convenient
  • Easy-to-Use
  • Designed Specifically for GloCyte

GloCyte TNC & RBC Reagents

The Total Nucleated Cell (TNC) and Red Blood Cell (RBC) Reagents are designed specifically for use with the GloCyte. The TNC Reagent stains TNCs for quantitative enumeration of TNCs in CSF specimens. The RBC Reagent stains erythrocytes for quantitative enumeration of RBCs in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) specimens.

GloCyte Low & High Level Controls

The Low and High Level Controls are assayed hematology controls designed to monitor the performance of the GloCyte. The GloCyte Controls contain fixed leukocytes and erythrocytes in a CSF-like matrix.

GloCyte Verification and Linearity Kit

The Verification & Linearity Kit is a multi-level hematology control designed to measure and verify the performance of the GloCyte. These materials are manufacturer-recommended for validation and ongoing linearity testing of the GloCyte in your laboratory.


– Puts your mind at ease by calculating TNC and RBC results for you in cells/µL.
– Quick assay procedure generates results with only 30 µL of sample per test.
– No mandatory background checks are required between samples.


– Disposable test cartridges, so there is no carryover between samples and infectious specimens can be processed without worry.
– No moving parts means no more headaches from routine maintenance.
– Proficiency assessment tool confirms new users will obtain results with confidence.
– Test cartridges can be manually marked for keeping track of sample analysis.
– The analyzer’s small footprint makes the most of every inch of valuable lab space.


– GloCyte is easy to operate with everything you need on one screen.
– When dilution is necessary, software guidance leads you through the quickest way to get to the result.
– Interactive software makes troubleshooting easy.
– Customizable field entries provide consistency with terminology currently used in your laboratory.


– Simple search functions make it easy to quickly retrieve results.
– Quality control features include Levey-Jennings charts, password protection, and an audit table. You can also flag aberrant control results and expired materials.
– Software interfaces with LIS and data is easily exported for statistical analysis.
– Comprehensive patient reports can be printed effortlessly.

What our customers say

The [GloCyte] is easy to operate and user friendly. Quick and accurate results. [...] Steps are easy to remember. Counts RBC’s less than 1000 [...]. Easier to use than using the hemocytometer. NO MORE extra steps seen on using chamber counts: cleaning counting chamber and cover slip before counting, placing chamber in a moist box to wait for cells to settle, lysing RBC with acetic acid before WBC can be counted, focusing microscope etc.
