Roche has unveiled its new, dedicated hematology testing solution, the cobas m 511, an integrated hematology analyzer.

Featuring Bloodhound technology, the cobas m 511 addresses the challenges of hematology testing by combining the three components of the process – a digital morphology analyzer, a cell counter, and a classifier into one streamlined solution – which prepares stains and analyzes microscopy blood slides.

The cobas m 511 provides greater accuracy and consistency of results, compared to current technologies, by identifying, counting, isolating, and categorizing white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets, and then presenting the digital images of all these cell types. This automation and digitization reduces the need for resource-intensive manual microscope reviews, supports clinicians to share challenging cases around the world, and enables the delivery of quicker results, which ultimately aid patient diagnoses.
