XN Blood Bank mode

Perform the quality control of your blood products on one haematology analyser

Blood component safety is key in transfusion medicine and blood product manufacturing. Therefore, high standards during the whole process from donor qualification to quality monitoring of the products are required.

Especially residual cell enumeration is important for process quality control. Until now, haematology analysers could not reach the lower limit of quantification required for this. But now, the new Blood Bank mode offers the potential to run such analyses with confidence.

Your benefits in daily routine

  • Say good-bye to current methods which are often time-consuming, costly and dependent on the individual skills of the staff.
  • No manual preparation, so simple to operate for everyone in the laboratory.
  • Consistent, standardised and automated assessment of the quality of your blood products to ensure patient safety
  • Save precious time by analysing various parameters on one instrument.
  • Accurately and reproducibly identify those blood components in which leucodepletion has failed.

Blood components and measuring profiles

Blood components and measuring profiles

The Blood Bank mode offers the analysis of blood components with four different selectable profiles – two profiles for red blood cell concentrates and two profiles for platelet concentrates:

RBC pack

RBC pack + residual cells
rWBC – Residual white blood cells
RBC – Red blood cell count
HGB – Haemoglobin
HCT – Haematocrit

Aspirated sample volume
150 µL

PLT pack

PLT pack + residual cells
rWBC – Residual white blood cells
rRBC – Residual red blood cells*
PLT - Platelet count

Aspirated sample volume
205 µL

The XN-1000 and XN-2000 haematology analysers can now be equipped with the Blood Bank mode offering the potential to automate, simplify and rationalise the transfusion medicine and blood manufacturing workflow. The XN analyser has to be equipped with the RET and PLT-F applications and a Blood Bank mode licence.



The hourly throughput of one standalone XN-1000 analyser in Blood Bank mode varies depending on the profiles used.

International guidelines require blood component safety and therefore residual cell enumeration is crucial.

Current methods for the enumeration of rWBC and rRBC are either manual methods such as visual inspection and chamber counting or semi-automated methods such as flow cytometry or fluorescent image analysis. All of these methods require manual sample preparation and skilled staff, and are therefore not standardised.

Workflow improvements with the Blood Bank mode:

  • Methods are standardised
  • Easy to operate for everyone
  • Consolidation of multiple haematological parameter on one platform
  • No additional tube sampling
  • Fully automated measurement in sampler mode
