HaematologyOxford Biosystems works with two companies that offer innovative instrumentation for the busy Haematology laboratory that needs fast, accurate results – Alifax (Padova, Italy) and Diatron (Budapest, Hungary).

ALIFAX® - ESR in 20 seconds

The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is widely used as a screening or monitoring test for patients with acute or chronic inflammation. The reference technique for ESR is the Westergren method but this is time consuming and includes many variables that make quality control difficult such as sample collection, temperature and time of sample storage, equipment and methodology. .

Capillary photometry technology incorporated by Alifax in their ESR analysers measures red blood cell aggregation, providing automated ESR results in 20 seconds and overcoming the variables and limitations of the sedimentation method.

  • Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate Measurements by TEST 1 Better Reflect Inflammation Than Do Those by the Westergren Method in Patients With Malignancy, Autoimmune Disease, or Infection
  • Choong-Hwan Cha, MD et al

Alifax Latex Control kits contain three samples with known low, medium and high values, and are available in 2 pack sizes (6 tests and 30 tests)

Alifax ESR analysers provide results in 20 seconds with high correlation with the Westergren method.
