CSF Cell Counting

Our technology and services help improve results consistency and test turnaround time.

Automating Analysis of All CSF Specimens

Busy labs often look to automation to ensure timely sample processing, but analyzing CSF samples – especially those at clinically relevant low cell counts – can be time-consuming and challenging. Our CSF cell counter automates handling of all CSF samples, detecting down to 1 cell/µL and delivering total nucleated cell (TNC) and red blood cell (RBC) results in less than 5-minutes using only 30 µL per test.

Simplicity You Can Count On

GloCyte is easy to operate with everything you need on one screen. The software offers search functionality, calculations and results, guidance on steps, and more.

The data management functionality interfaces with LIS and also provides comprehensive patient reports. GloCyte provides timely and accurate results, saving your tech time without sacrificing outcomes and also reducing errors.

Improve the Accuracy of Assays

Physicians rely on accurate data and conclusive test results to make critical decisions related to patient health, but because of the unique rheological properties of plasma and other liquids, it can be difficult to achieve consistent results.  

Verifying the accuracy and precision of handheld single and multichannel pipettes and automated liquid handlers is critical to meeting this need. Our liquid handling products and services can help you ensure consistency and quality of operations, analytical workflows, and operator proficiency.

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.

I have set up and trained fellow employees on how to use the PCS Pipette Calibration system over all of our laboratory departments and three hospitals. It is easy to use and understand how to use it in step-by-step instructions while calibrating and setting up pipettes for calibrations.

Consultants Laboratory, Agnesian Healthcare

The PCS Pipette Calibrations system is easy to use. The Artel Calibration Standard set is customizable to your set of pipettes. Their service team works hard to match the kit to individual site needs. Capable of calibrating single and multichannel pipettes.

Kathryn Traughber

Tri Cities Laboratory

The Artel pipette calibration system has completely streamlined our calibration program. The amount of downtime due to uncalibrated pipettes and pipettes requiring external calibration has been reduced. Non-conformance due to calibration has been eliminated.

Bryan Waters

MPI-Animal Health Laboratory

[With the Artel PCS], we run pipette calibrations for multiple sections and push through 200+ pipettes in 2 months…We love the access to the computer to make saving and printing the results so much easier especially where we have to file away information for 7 separate labs each with their own set of pipettes.

Ashley Aurand-Cravens

KY Divisions of Lab Services

We use an Artel PCS system to calibrate our pipettes. We purchase all the reagents necessary to use. Have contacted Artel Technical support for questions in regard to using the Artel system and necessary trouble shooting suggestions. Happy with the service for purchase of the system that we are using and the products. Verification of pipettes using this system has saved us time and provided more accurate results compared to using balances for verification of pipettes in particular small volumes.

Fathieh Shafiee

Wisonsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection

Artel PCS is very easy to use. The results are consistent between different users. The software is user friendly and makes it easy to keep schedules and calibration plans organized. It has sped up the calibration process.
