HemoCue WBC Microcuvettes


(160 Per Box)

Based on HemoCue’s proven, reliable microcuvette technology, the HemoCue® WBC System brings you the unique benefit of determining total white blood cell counts right at the point-of-care. In just three minutes, you have results with the same quality as those from a central laboratory.


Disposable Microcuvette

Is made of plastic and comprises a body having a cavity which takes about 10 uL. The microcuvette serves as a sample container and reaction chamber. The cuvette cavity contains reagents deposited on its inner walls and the blood sample is drawn into the cavity by capillary action and spontaneously mixes with the reagents. A hemolyzing agent lyses the red cells in the microcuvette and a staining agent colors the white cells. Capillary or venous blood can be used. When the microcuvette is placed in the analyzer an image is taken of the stained white cells and the number of cells is counted by image analysis in the analyzer.

The Microcuvettes are to be stored at 15-35°C (59-95°F), <90% non-condensing humidity. Once the seal of the vial is broken, the microcuvettes are stable for 3 months. An unopened vial of microcuvettes can be stored for a shorter period of time (4 weeks) outside the specified storage conditions down to 0°C (32°F) and up to 50°C (122°F), <90% non-condensing humidity. Allow the microcuvettes to reach 15-35°C (59-95°F) before use. Use the microcuvettes prior to the expiration date that is printed on the package. Keep the vial properly closed. All unused microcuvettes should remain in the original package.
