MULTISPECIES ANALYZERS FOR
ANIMAL SCIENCES
On February 7th of this year Sysmex sponsored a webinar presentation by Dr. Kay Criswell PhD, DABT, SBB,
MT(ASCP) titled “Interpretation of Hematology Veterinary Scattergrams in Normal and Pathologic Conditions”.
The webinar was part of the 7th annual Laboratory Animal Sciences virtual conference hosted by LabRoots, a
social networking website that offers educational virtual events that contribute to the advancement of science
through content sharing and collaboration. In this presentation, Dr. Criswell explored the interpretation of
multi-species scattergrams in normal and pathologic conditions using case studies from the XT-2000iV™
analyzer as well as the new XN-V™ platform.

The XN-V multispecies analyzer for animal research is modeled after the popular XN-Series
Automated Hematology Analyzer that has been in use for human clinical diagnostics since 2012.
The unit allows for aspiration volumes of 50 µL or 88 µL, is capable of automated analysis for
standard tubes as well as raised bottom microtainers, and has a body fluid analysis mode that
offers closed tube testing. Similar to its predecessor, the XT-2000iV, the new XN-V analyzer
uses a combination of impedance counting and flow cytometry to obtain results on a wide range
of species. The XN-V uses specialized software with pre-defined gating for 13 different animal
species, 50 subspecies, and the ability to design and store up to an additional 99 customized
gating profiles. Discrete testing profiles can be stored for each species and results can be
electronically saved and retransmitted to the LIS if re-gating of the scattergrams is required.
XN-2000VTM Multispecies
Hematology Analyzer
To meet the needs of small research labs and large commercial veterinary labs alike, Sysmex offers
scalable automation options. The XN-V is available as a standalone unit, a multi-unit system, and
even configurable to include the SP-50 Slidemaker/Stainer. Additional laboratory efficiency can be
achieved with the addition of the CellaVision Veterinary multispecies analyzer for digital imaging.
There are two models available: the DM1200 Vet with a loading capacity up to 12 slides, and the
DM9600 Vet that can have up to 96 slides loaded continuously.
CellaVision Vet DM9600
These models allow for standardization by replacing manual microscopy with automatic cell
location and pre-classification of cells specific to species. Remote viewing software permits
sharing of cell images to allow collaboration and consultation between the researcher and
laboratorians. The combined hematology multispecies platform delivers advanced technology
that is unique to Sysmex.
