XN-9100 Maximum Workload

  • Combines two processing lines for fastest TAT – even at peak times
  • Flexible configuration of XN analysis modules
  • Discrete rack management
  • Built-in auto reflex

XN-9100 Maximum Workload – Two worlds, one solution: High-speed screening of your bulk load – expert analysis for the pathological samples

The XN-9100 Maximum Workload best serves laboratories with a very high workload of EDTA blood sample tubes. You observe significant order entry peaks and need short turnaround times (TAT), while most of your samples are negative.

Ideally, you could do with two different processing lines: one for screening the bulk of the samples as fast as possible and another for analysing those with conspicuous results further.  Looking at your samples, most should have order profiles for cell counting only, while analyses for other work areas (e.g. HbA1c or ESR) should not exceed 20-30% to keep up a smooth and fast workflow.

And if you need to archive your EDTA tubes and/or sort them for subsequent work areas, yet don't need sample pre-sorting or rack optimisation, Maximum Workload is the solution for you.

To make optimal use of your space, or when the available space is not enough for a linear set-up, alternative designs can be installed using TU-40: inner-L, outer-L, inner-U, outer-U, Z.

Configuration of the Maximum Workload

Configuration of the Maximum Workload

Our Maximum Workload core configuration consists of two independent processing lines:

  • The ‘screening line’ can include up to 24 XN analysis modules. They deliver fluorescence flow cytometry counting of leucocytes and NRBC both in CBC and DIFF mode and will guarantee constant performance for all screening samples. You can also integrate the optional XN-BF application for measuring body fluid samples on XN.
  • The ‘expert line’ is equipped with additional modules for your Smear Workflow, like the SP-50 slide maker/stainer and the optional DI-60 digital imaging module, and additional XN clinical value applications like WPC, PLT-F and RET, all covering reflex testing, for best analytical performance.

The flexibility of the individual setup, based on your existing order profiles and patient populations, means your XN-9100 Maximum Workload solution can offer you the best analytical capacity available, both for screening and reflex tests. Yet it remains scalable to your future diagnostic needs.

The ‘TS-10 Up’ tube sorter is placed in between those two lines and manages the sample workflow for dispatching samples selected for the expert line, sorting samples for other work areas, like HbA1c or ESR, and taking care of your EDTA tube sample archiving.

The modular concept means you have great expansion options in case your sample volume increases. The screening line can be expanded to process up to 2.400 samples per hour. This expansion can be gradual by adding one XN analysis module at a time, which means just a minimum increase in your footprint.

The workflow and reflex testing is managed by the Extended IPU, based on a comprehensive rule set. The functions, structure and scope of the Extended IPU are readily adaptable to your individual needs, ensuring your workflow is as intelligent as you require it to be.

Integrated HbA1c analysis

Integrated HbA1c analysis

With the HLC-723 G11 Analyser from Tosoh integrated in an XN-9100 configuration, you can process your HbA1c orders in a fully automated way, from a single EDTA tube in a single run together with routine haematology testing. You can optimise your workflow and, if needed, it supports you with your pre- and post-analytical tasks, since you no longer need to sort your EDTA tubes manually for HbA1c orders in the haematology work area. The possibility of using a single consolidated EDTA tube per patient helps to save manual work, costs and improves patient management. To multiply your HbA1c processing capacity, you can expand your set-up and integrate up to six G11 modules.

Integrated ESR analysis

Integrated ESR analysis

With the Interrliner XN from RR Mechatronics integrated in an XN-9100 configuration, you can process your ESR orders with the gold standard Westergren method in a fully automated way, from a single EDTA tube in a single run together with routine haematology testing. You can significantly improve sample workflow, including – if needed – your pre- and post-analysis sorting tasks, as you no longer have to sort your EDTA tubes manually for ESR analysis. And since you use just a single consolidated EDTA tube per patient, you save on manual work, costs and improve your patient management. To triple your ESR processing capacity with significantly shorter turnaround times, you can expand your set-up and integrate up to three Interrliner modules.
