MECOS Microscope-Analyzers

MECOS-C2 family of automated microscopy systems

Animal blood smear analyses

The MECOS-C2 family offers automated animal blood smear analysis technique MECO-HEMOa. The MECO-HEMOa analyzer accelerates and standardizes the analysis,  increases productivity, creates a modern workplace.  Automatic adaptation to the specific features of the smear provides analysis performance in conditions of usual specimen preparation quality. The technique can be implemented on MECOS-C2 hardware platforms with different automation levels of load, identification and specimen scan.
