Sysmex and Inpeco announce the launch of a new solution that will change the way of urinalysis

Press Release

Novazzano, Switzerland,  06 April 2021 – Sysmex and Inpeco are joining forces for a one-of-a-kind product launch later in the year. Combining Sysmex’s twenty-five years of history and expertise in automated urinalysis as well as the company’s market leadership in sediment analysis with Inpeco’s unparalleled authority and global leadership in Total Laboratory Automation, this new solution will change the game in urinalysis.

Leveraging the benefits of Sysmex’s UN-Series urinalysis solutions and Inpeco’s FlexLabTM automation system will create a new industry benchmark: the world’s first fully automated urinalysis workflow solution. This innovative solution will become available for both core and microbiology labs, providing customers with full flexibility to select the workflow setup according to their needs. The interface to the FlexLabTM track will connect up to five UN-Series modules, making it a convenient hands-off choice for any lab aiming to reduce errors and increase productivity.

Similar to the UN-Series, Inpeco’s FlexLab™ automation system grows with the changing needs of the customer, as adding modules or new analyser connections is easy by design. Moreover, FlexLab™ is the only truly open automation system that allows labs to connect the analysers of their choice and the specialties they need, making it a future proof investment that drives premium quality patient care.

The first collaboration between the two companies dates back to 2010. Since then, all Sysmex haematology and haemostasis analysers have become connectable to Inpeco’s Total Laboratory Automation system. This upcoming new solution will be the first of its kind in urinalysis. The exact launch date will be announced in Fall 2021. Stay tuned!
