Celltac ES MEK-7300K
Leading the way into 5-part-diff
Easy sampling and user friendly software
On-screen guidance – extremely simple
The Nihon Kohden Celltac ES displays instruction guidelines on how to use the device directly on the screen. Self-explaining menus will guide the user very friendly with the stress-free operation.
Several dilution modes including a capillary mode
The user can select from five different dilution modes: normal, pre-dilution, WBC high, WBC low and capillary. In the capillary mode, only 10 μL of blood is necessary. Each Celltac ES provides two built-in sampling modes: open and closed. The closed tube mode ensures safety for the user and avoids blood contact.

Advanced Count – extremely reliable
Additional measurement can be performed without sampling additional blood when WBC or PLT are low. This unique feature ensures more reliable results in case of abnormal WBC or PLT counts.
Immature Granulocytes (IG)
The IG count is included in the complete CBC+Diff mode in absolute and relative value. The IG parameter is a good indicator of myeloid cell production which can result from inflammatory infection or severe haematological diseases.
Complete result in only 60 seconds
Unlimited patient memory
Besides the internal memory, an SD-Card slot at the back of the analyzer can be used to get unlimited storage of patient samples, QC results and alarm logs (2 GB can store 30.000 patient samples).
Usability at its best – large 10.4-inch touchscreen
Convince yourself how easy to use Celltac ES is. The large 10.4-inch colour touchscreen provides the best easy and friendly operation. You can access full patient results on one screen. The results review is very flexible: the user can see all necessary information at a glance or focus on different areas like zooming into scattergrams, histograms, and flags as well as values for details.
Patented laser technology
The innovative 3-angle scatter detector provides better detection of WBC cells using precise light scattering measurement. From a small forward angle (FSS) we obtain WBC size information, from a large forward angle (FLS) we obtain information on cell structure and complexity of nucleochromatin particles, and from a side angle (SDS) we obtain internal granularity and globularity information. This 3D graphic information is calculated by the exclusive Nihon Kohden software algorithm.
No chemical processing of WBC
The Nihon Kohden patented leukocyte classification reagent selectively hemolyzes the red blood cells while leaving the white blood cells intact. The nucleus, granules and cellularity are preserved in their original state. The cells are not altered by staining, shrinkage or differential lysis which can distort the measurement results. The Celltac ES can get morphological information from natural shaped WBC nuclei and granules and perform more accurate WBC 5 diff measurements.
Celltac 5-part differential measures each cell in one unique flow cytometer. This eliminates measurement errors using multiple channel methods.
Unique Advanced Count
High result precision
The Advanced Count is an exclusive feature of Nihon Kohden Celltac ES. The Advanced Count triggers automatically additional count without sampling new blood. The Advanced Count provides higher precision of the absolute WBC and PLT count by increasing the volume of diluted blood according to the number of cells obtained per microliter.
The threshold of Advanced Count can be set for PLT to four different settings: 50,000/μl, 100,000/μl, 150,000/μl and off. For WBC it can be set to on (< 3,500 /μl) and off.
40 years of experience guarantees high-quality standards
Nihon Kohden's quality guiding principle is based on a high degree of self-manufacturing performance. This
allows controlling and directly influencing every process necessary to design high-quality instruments.
Not just features, but real benefits
The Nihon Kohden Celltac analyzers give you real advantages:
- The twin diluting nozzle system prevents cross-contamination between RBC & WBC counting.
- The Nihon Kohden original syringe pumps do not need disassembly or cleaning. The Celltac ES uses exclusive solenoid valves - made by Nihon Kohden - rather than pinch valves. This contributes to extremely low cost and time-saving maintenance.
- The Celltac ES offers an automatic clog removal, that removes blood proteins and dust particles from the aperture by a high voltage electrical pulse after each measurement.
- With the Nihon Kohden innovative fluid path, the sample remains in the sample needle; there is no need for rinsing a syringe pump. This contributes to better precision and prevents a carry-over.
