YOKNEAM ILLIT, Israel, Nov. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- A study published in eJHaem Journal of Hematology in August 2022, compared PixCell Medical's FDA-cleared Point-of-Care 5-part differential CBC analyzer, with Sysmex's market-established Sysmex XN central lab CBC analyzer.
This ground-breaking study showed HemoScreen to be more accurate in regard to leukocyte abnormalities (flagging all abnormalities). It demonstrated better specificity (88% versus Sysmex XN's 72%) as it was less prone to false flagging versus the Sysmex XN. This advantage in accuracy stems largely from HemoScreen's novel machine learning-driven viscoelastic focusing technology. The study, titled "HemoScreen hematology analyzer compared to Sysmex XN for complete blood count, white blood cell differential, and detection of leukocyte abnormalities", and headed by researchers from the University of Turku, Finland, is the first ever to demonstrate point-of-care CBC analyzer to be superior to the gold standard, lab-based flow cytometry analyzer.
"This study supports the previous findings of HemoScreen analyzer's good repeatability and analytical stability." states the study in the discussion section. "HemoScreen hematology analyzer is essentially comparable to Sysmex XN for CBC and WBC differential analysis. Most importantly, HemoScreen detected all the samples confirmed to include abnormal leukocytes. HemoScreen was less prone to false WBC flagging compared to Sysmex XN, thereafter requiring less microscopy review. These abilities increase its utility in small healthcare units."
