ORDER IS NOW UNCOMMONLY
CONVENIENT.
In February, McKesson Medical-Surgical and Sysmex announced plans
for McKesson to be the exclusive distribution partner for the new
XW-100.
“Our partnership with McKesson allows us to offer this breakthrough
product to physicians through the largest and most established health
care company in the United States,” said Andy Hay, Chief Operating
Officer for Sysmex America. “The XW-100 expands Sysmex into new
health care markets, including pediatrics, urgent care, surgery centers
and health systems. McKesson is uniquely qualified to connect Sysmex
and this device with the physicians serving patients at primary care
practices throughout America.”
Recently teams from McKesson and Sysmex attended a training
workshop in preparation for the for the XW-100 product launch
planned for later this spring.
XW-100 CLIA waived hematology analyzer
On November 6th, 2018, the Food and Drug Administration
cleared the Sysmex XW-100, making it the first CLIA-waived CBC
hematology system available for use in near-patient settings. While
not intended to replace moderately complex laboratory testing, this
analyzer is the latest example of a trend to bring more lab testing
capabilities to the near patient environment. The goal is to reduce
time to results while improving both the speed and accuracy of
patient care. As cleared by the FDA, the Sysmex system provides
both a CBC and a three part white blood cell differential that uses
the company’s reliable, trusted, and proven technology that has
been honed by Sysmex scientists over nearly 50 years.
The intended use for the XW-100 states it is “Not for use in
diagnosing or monitoring patients with primary or secondary
chronic hematologic diseases or disorders, oncology patients,
critically ill patients, or patients under the age of two.”
