Intended Use :

Research Laboratories often require the flexibility to be able to analyze blood from a wider variety of species which is not possible using instruments designed for human testing and then adapted.

The Hemavet® 1700 was designed for veterinary use and can be customized to allow the user to optimize animal protocols by use of the user “programmable fluidics” to save up to 65 different species in the system memory. Every aspect of the Hemavet ® set-up can be customized by the user to provide variable lyse and diluent ratios, lyse timing, normal ranges and cell categorization.

Up to 27 parameters including a 5 part white cell differential on some species are available in only 2 minutes from 20 µL of whole blood.

The system is ideal for zoos, research laboratories, companion animals, livestock and exotic species testing.

Features :

  • Up to 27 parameters, including platelets
  • Fast - 26 samples per hour
  • Complete 5 part WBC differential
  • Designed specifically for veterinary medicine
  • Patented Expectation Maximisation software
  • Fully automated, whole blood open vials
  • Simple to operate
  • Low maintenance, due to Focused Flow® technology
  • Optimized Reagents and Controls
  • Efficient, cost effective patient management

Consumables :

Reagent Kit :
  The FS-PAK Reagent Kit is for use on the Hemavet 1700. This kit yields approximately 135 billable tests per reagent kit when running 15 samples per day.The optimum open pack life is 30 days, so reagent must be consumed within that time in order to receive optimal system performance and best value.
Lysing reagents are affected by light and will reduce in effectiveness over time once the pack is opened.
Controls :
  Dog, Cat, Mouse and Horse Controls are available in packs of 7 x 2mL control blood. The open vial expiration is 14 days. The closed vial expiration is 3 months maximum from manufacture. Control lots are released from manufacture every 3 months (15 Jan, 15 Apr, 15 Jul, 15 Oct). It is recommended that users run the type of control for the animal species that is most frequently tested. A Cat, Mouse and Dog combination is available.
Calibration :
  Drew Scientific recommends running a control each day. The calibration should be reviewed every six months. Adjust as necessary. Review after replacing worn or damaged components.
