X-Class analysis quality for smaller workloads
- Fluorescence flow cytometry for high quality analysis
- Excellent WBC differential
- Very low aspiration volume
- Compact, ready-to-use system with minimum maintenance
The XS-series is the latest addition to Sysmex’s X-Class haematology analysers. And despite being the smallest, its quality is undiminished. Its fluorescence flow cytometry technology delivers extremely high quality all round. With a complete differential blood count for all white blood cell populations, and an excellent determination of red blood cells and platelets with hydrodynamic focusing. Haemoglobin measurements are equally impressive since the XS-series retains a dedicated haemoglobin channel.
One of the key distinctions of the XS-series is the aspiration volume of just 20μL, which will benefit those with neonatal and paediatric samples.
We have taken on board lessons learned with the other X-Class analysers to make your life in the laboratory easier. User maintenance has been reduced further – with minimal automatic shutdown time. The XS-800i is also a great backup or nightshift solution.
All XS-series analysers are specifically crafted for laboratories that, despite smaller throughputs, still need to deliver detailed, reliable and highly accurate results.

Just 20μL aspiration volume
The XS-1000i analyses samples in a closed system by piercing the tube cap. This means direct contact with the sample is avoided. It requires just 20μL aspiration volume for the complete differential blood count. This is particularly beneficial in settings where you don't want to have to take large volumes of blood and so can increase patient comfort, such as in paediatric hospitals. It is also useful for microtubes: a special adapter is supplied for all XS instruments.
A novel blood sensor guarantees exactly 20μL aspiration volume is used each time, and so contributes to the reliability of the analysis results.
Easy to use
Sysmex instruments stand out in terms of quality, and in terms of ease of use. We know just how tough it is to work in a lab all day. So it’s important to us that our devices make your life as easy as possible.
At the end of the day, you don't want to have to wait for a complicated shutdown process. Building on our knowledge from the XE- and XT-series, we have managed to reduce user maintenance for the XS-series even further. Now, all you need is a single push of the button to initiate your daily fully automatic shutdown. It takes just two to three minutes. And requires no additional reagent.
You will find other functions and the software menu structure intuitive and simpler to use than in most other analysers.
Since XS-1000i uses the same reagents as larger X-Class systems, and its operation and user interface are very similar, it is excellent as a nightshift or backup solution. No extra training is required for those used to using the larger devices.
Simplified reagent management
Thanks to the fine-tuned reagent management function on the XS-series you can now easily control and record all essential reagent handling steps.
A handheld barcode reader will save you time by collecting the necessary information from the reagent barcode. This includes reagent name, lot number, expiration date and package volume. For traceability, this information is stored with the user’s log-on name so you can meet accreditation requirements.
The reagent meter screen helps to check the analyser’s reagent status as it displays the approximate remaining reagent volume.
Adapt your analyser to fit your overall lab solution
Apart from the manual start button, your XS-1000i is operated entirely via the information-processing unit (IPU). Based on Windows®, we have used our experience with other analysers to make this interface as intuitive as possible, with interactive menus and understandable icons.
The IPU database stores your patient data, test orders, quality control data and all analysis results. Since all the data management is performed on the IPU, you can easily integrate the XS-1000i into your laboratory solution. Even if you’re using your system offline and without the barcode system, you can still analyse samples selectively using the work list function.
Add a sampler for more automation
For a higher degree of automation and workflow standardisation, you can connect a sampler. Samplers mix samples and read the barcode automatically to query the corresponding sample request from the laboratory EDP. You just need to start the process and you can walk away!
Up to 10,000 results can be stored centrally on the XS-1000i, including all graphics. You can retrieve any sample you need at any time. Simply select from the comprehensive sorting and filtering criteria and various search functions. Processing status is available for all results too, which can be validated, printed out or transmitted to the laboratory information system (LIS).
