Abstract

Nowadays, there are variety of automated hematology analyzers available in the market. However, the new product of diagnostic equipment should be evaluated and validated to ensure their capability.  Thorough process of testing on all new hematology analyzers must be performed to certify that reliable result will be released and for patient safety. This study was carried out to evaluate automated hematology analyzers; Abbott Alinity H, in the Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia setting.  Blood samples send for complete blood count were selected randomly (n = 50) from healthy subjects and those who have different blood disorders. Blood specimens and quality control materials were analysed on the Abbott Alinity H to evaluate the precision. For correlation, the Sysmex XN-1000 was used as the comparative method. The study showed very good correlation between Abbott Alinity H and Sysmex, XN-1000 in the parameters such as white blood cell (WBC), red blood cell (RBC), hemoglobin (HGB), mean cell volume (MCV), platelet (PLT), neutrophil (NEU), lymphocyte (LYM), monocyte (MONO), eosinophil (EOS), and basophil (BASO). For the precision, all the parameters are performed well within allowable limits of performance for Abbott Alinity H. In conclusion, the Abbott Alinity H demonstrated an acceptable performance in term of precision and the analyzer was equivalent with the Sysmex XN-1000.
