Flexibility & capacity to adapt

Laboratory service providers like you are facing considerable uncertainty in the healthcare environment, due to an aging population, proliferation of chronic diseases, and performance pressures such as consolidation and managing costs. The Alinity h-series is part of a holistic family of personalized solutions from Abbott. The Alinity family of harmonized systems is designed to build greater capacity, flexibility, and confidence to help you manage unpredictability, both today, and into the future.

Hematology systems that streamline workflow to transform your laboratory

The Alinity h-series of systems integrates hematology workflow, from high-throughput Complete Blood Count (CBC) analysis to automated slide making and staining. With a bi-directional, internal conveyor and a throughput of 125 CBCs per m2, it delivers high performance in one of the most compact footprints available.

Simplified workflow backed by innovative design

The Alinity hq analyzer delivers a Complete Blood Count (CBC) with a 6-part White Blood Cell (WBC) differential and several parameters using Advanced MAPSS™ (Multi Angle Polarized Scatter Separation) technology. The design incorporates additional angular intervals of light scatter to improve differentiation of the WBC, Red Blood Cells (RBC) and platelets as they pass through the detection area of the optical flow cell.

Together with the use of multi-paradigm numerical computer tools, a machine-learning cell classifier, a Gaussian Mixture Model (GMM) and Graph Adaptive Clustering (GAC), the Alinity hq technology represents an advancement in cellular analysis for hematology.

Achieve integration that is built on user-focused design

With an emphasis on addressing needs articulated by you, the Alinity h-series was designed for future integration of multiple modules, all controlled by a single system control center. It also offers an intuitive and uniform experience, aligned with other Alinity solutions. This commonality in user experience across multiple laboratory disciplines allows for efficiencies in training, operation, and utilization of staff.

Maximize hematology efficiency with laboratory automation

The Alinity h-series provides seamless connections to multiple automation solutions that helps customize your track and how your systems connect to your needs.

It provides seamless connection to the GLP systems Track maximizing efficiency by providing consistent, predictable sample management, and helps improve patient care by minimizing opportunities for error.

*Alinity h-series RBI Connection is not available in the U.S.

**GLP systems Track is not approved for use in U.S. blood donor and plasma testing laboratories.

The Alinity h-series also interfaces with the ACCELERATOR a3600 system.

The flexibility of the Alinity h-series allows simultaneous sample loading on the analyzer and the automation track. It utilizes smart-sensing technology that intelligently prioritizes STAT samples, shortening wait times.

Adding to the seamless integration with these automation solutions, our AlinIQ middleware solution enables your laboratory to gain further operational efficiency, reducing manual work and enabling your staff to focus on critical tasks.

Deliver performance that comes from proven expertise in system and assay design

Alinity h-series is designed to deliver reliable results needed by the busy hematology laboratory and is anchored on user feedback to ensure that the laboratory operates efficiently.

Leveraging Abbott's legacy of experience in optics and reagent development, the Alinity hq analyzer uses only three reagents to deliver a CBC with 6-part differential.
