Enabling Rapid and Accurate Clinical Decision Making

Nitin Nayyar

Addressing a number of pertinent issues, Nitin Nayyar, Product & Marketing Operations, NIHON KOHDEN INDIA detailed about the recent innovation in Hematology Technology that allows Measuring CBC + ESR in Just 3 Minutes at the virtual second edition of Elets Diagnostics Leadership Summit.


Nitin Nayyar, Product & Marketing Operations, NIHON KOHDEN INDIA during his industry presentation detailed about ‘A Recent Innovation in Hematology Technology | Measuring CBC + ESR in Just 3 Minutes’. He stated that ESR is a non-specific prognostic marker commonly prescribed along with CBC by a physician. He added that ESR is performed independently from CBC and no relation with CBC could be predicted or estimated directly. He averred that as the two tests are not in sync with each other, the information received from them at times can at times be misleading for clinical physicians and thus their combination becomes important.

He further detailed about the challenges posed by the Westergren method, it being time consuming; having high sample requirement; temperature correction is required to get correct ESR and no direct control is available in the method among other limitations. He went on to introduce CELL COUNTER iNTEGRATED RHEOMETRIC EXCELLENCE (CiHREX) Technology, a patented technology to calculate & measure ESR optically. It is not an isolated test and is in full sync with CBC value, which has the ability to correlate ESR value with CBC value. He talked of the three methods associated with this technology including Impedance method, DynaHelix Flow Control and Rheology, combined into one instrument.

He stated the salient features of this new technology that include CBC+ESR (in just three minutes); small sample value being taken; No extra reagent or consumables are required and has evidence-based good correlation with Westergren Method. He stated that this technology will help in saving time, cost, giving better results in less time and also save time of limited lab manpower. He also stated that the technology offers accuracy checks through single control for both CBC & ESR.
