Code: 20301P
Diadifton Argos/Pentra

INTENDED USE
(For In Vitro Diagnostic Use Only)
Diadifton Argos/Pentra is used by ABX Pentra 60, 80, 120, Coulter AcT 5Diff hematological
analyzer as a whole blood sample DILUTING reagent.

SUMMARY AND PRINCIPLE
FOR Coulter AcT 5 Diff: A sample volume of a whole blood specimen is aspirated into the analyzer where a portion of it is automatically diluted with Diadifton Argos/Pentra. A portion of this first dilution is further diluted with Diadifton Argos/Pentra. This second dilution of the sample is then introduced into impedance particle analyzer where the red blood cell count (RBC) and the thrombocyte count (PLT) is measured. To the remainder of the first dilution of the RBC sample a hemoglobin lyse reagent (Dialyse-Argos Pentra) is added for hemoglobin (HGB) measurement. A second portion of the aspirated blood sample is also diluted with lyse reagent (Diafix EO5 Diff. P60) and diluent is added at the end of the reaction as a stop reagent. From this aliquot the flow cytometer measures white blood cell count (WBC), lymphocyte count (LYM), monocyte cell count (MONO), eosinophil cell count (EO), neutrophil cell count (NEU). A third portion of the aspirated blood sample is lysed with a lysing reagent (Dialyse-Baso II) for basophil cell count (BASO) measurement in an impedance detector.
