Diaton-Erma
INTENDED USE 
(For In Vitro Diagnostic Use Only) 
 
Diaton Erma Diluent is used by Ermax-18, ERMA PCE-210, PCE-170N, PCE-170, PCE-140 
hematological analyzer as a whole blood sample DILUTING reagent. 
 
 
SUMMARY AND PRINCIPLE 
 
A sample volume of a whole blood specimen is aspirated into the analyzer where a portion of it is automatically diluted with Diaton Erma Diluent. A portion of this first dilution is further diluted with Diaton Erma Diluent. 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 a lysing reagent is added for the measurement of hemoglobin (HGB), white blood cell count (WBC), lymphocytes count (LYM), mid cell (MID), granulocyte count (GRAN). Consult your specific instrument Operator’s Manual for additional information with respect to procedures and principles for whole blood hematological analysis.
