Simply Smart

With reduced budgets, shrinking laboratory space and staffing challenges, many laboratories need a solution that lets them work smarter with less.

The CELL-DYN Emerald 22 AL is a full performance, automated optical 5-part differential analyzer that delivers smarter results for small to mid-size clinical laboratories.

For in vitro diagnostic use only.

Compact Design

Conserve valuable laboratory space with a small footprint and only 2 reagents, plus onboard cleaner.


Walkaway Functionality

Optimize hematology workflow with 50 tube load-up capacity.


Ease of Use
  • Reduce hands-on time with touch-free scheduled daily maintenance, startup and shutdown
  • Decrease manual entry errors and help to comply by use of barcoded reagents



Smart Safety Features

  • Ensure user safety with a specially developed open tube sample device
  • Prevent errors with optional tube bypass for specimens with unreadable barcodes

Hematology Learning Guide
The Hematology Learning Guide is an overview of blood physiology, red and white blood cells, platelets and abnormalities associated with these cellular components. The Full Blood Count (FBC) encompasses a wide variety of hematology tests and is commonly requested in hospital and reference core laboratories. The guide discusses the tests that are part of automated hematology screening as well as the different methodologies used to analyze or calculate the results. It also provides additional information regarding the clinical implications of the test results that may also require additional follow-up testing.
