IDEXX inVue Dx Cellular Analyzer could shift how cytology and blood morphology cases are processed and diagnosed
IDEXX Laboratories announced the launch of IDEXX inVue Dx Cellular Analyzer, a slide-free cellular analyzer that will detect the most common cytologic changes within blood and ear samples. The platform uses AI-powered and load-and-go to potentially cause a shift in how veterinarians are processing, diagnosing, and acting on cytology and blood morphology cases.
According to an organizational release,1 the AI technology was taught by IDEXX board-certified pathologists, and the analyzer can give practitioners with reference-laboratory quality results in 10 minutes. The analyzer will examine cells in their natural state to give professionals multidimensional images of sample findings and enable diagnostic insights.
"For decades, practitioners like myself have struggled with the inadequacies of slide-based samples and now, with the IDEXX inVue Dx analyzer, the slide-free workflow is a game-changer backed by technology that provides the confidence we need to provide an accurate diagnosis for our patients," said Guillermo Couto, DVM, DACVIM (SAIM, Oncology), in the release.1 "Additionally, when paired with the ProCyte Dx or ProCyte One hematology analyzer, the IDEXX inVue Dx analyzer will provide rapid analysis of blood cell morphology, aiding veterinarians to arrive at a diagnosis almost instantly."
The features and benefits of the analyzer include:
"Veterinary professionals are exceedingly busy and are eager for ways to increase capacity," said Jay Mazelsky, president and chief executive officer of IDEXX. "We strive to be at the forefront of practice-changing innovation, and the IDEXX inVue Dx analyzer is our latest cutting-edge solution that creates efficiencies, provides deeper clinical insights, and increases practitioners' confidence in their patients' diagnoses and treatment plans."
IDEXX plans to launch IDEXX inVue Dx analyzer will begin in late 2024.
