HemoCSF-Step:

The first tool to successfully  detect and quantify blood contamination in cerebrospinal fluid.

The most commonly procedure for collection of CSF is the Lumbar Puncture also known as a spinal tap, which consist of a needle insertion into the spinal canal most commonly to collect CSF for diagnostic testing.

With relative frequency LP procedure is complicated by the contamination of CSF with blood cells as result of needle trauma, also known as traumatic tap.

The presence of blood cells and the concentration affected of some substances due to blood contamination in CSF can complicate the analysis and confounding the diagnosis.

Quantifying blood contamination in CSF by Flow Cytometry.

Current methods for the determination of contamination in CSF consist of applying corrective formulas based on the assumption that the ratio of WBCs to RBCs in CSF will be identical to that in blood.

This determination is only correct if neither WBC nor red blood cells are lysed in the CSF during the time between collection of the liquid and the cell count, which is very unusual.

New high-performance method for evaluation of CSF contamination by flow cytometry

Quantitative assay measuring blood contamination in CSF.

Data Analysis Software to extract and interpret assay results.

HemoStep Software:

The first integrated software solution to successfully  detect and quantify blood contamination in cerebrospinal fluid.

  • SOPHISTICATED AUTO-GATING ALGORITHM

  • PROVIDING THE MOST INFORMATIVE DATA REPORT

  • IMPROVING SECURITY AND TRACEABILITY OF THE RESULTS 

How to analyse Blood Contamination in CSF with HemoStep Solution:

HemoStep Analysis Software has been designed to analyse HemoCSF-Step flow cytometry kit data files.

HemoStep software is a downloadable desktop application for both PC and Mac devices, and it has been design to help interpretating data extracted from different flow cytometry assays reducing time and improving laboratories efficiency.
