McKesson Medical-Surgical plans to be the exclusive distributor of a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments-waived CBC analyzer developed to deliver common blood test results in as few as three minutes.

McKesson will be the exclusive distribution partner for Sysmex’s XW-100 automated hematology analyzer.

While geared toward primary care, Sysmex also noted its applicability for urgent care and health systems.

“The XW-100 is an exciting healthcare innovation that will help to improve quality of care, practice efficiency and patient satisfaction,” said Doug Shaver, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Laboratory at McKesson Medical-Surgical. “Sysmex’s XW-100 is a compact, accurate and reliable device that is incredibly easy to use.”

The instrument has step-by-step guided prompts and instructions and operational safety checks. The XW-100 is “the culmination of a rigorous multi-year research, development and testing effort to develop a high-quality hematology analyzer able to deliver accurate and reliable results in a CLIA-waived primary care setting,” the company said.

A full launch is expected this spring.
