The perfect harmony between Quality and Experience in Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate

Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate directly in haemogram tube with EDTA


Diesse Ves-Matic Cube 30 Touch is the most recent and complete generation of Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate analyzers in EDTA launched by Menarini Diagnostics. This range of instruments has been developed to meet the highest technological standards and assure maximum degree of reliability in results, aiming at the satisfaction of customers’ needs. 



Ves-Matic Cube 30 Touch is a system totally automated for determination of Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) directly in haemogram tube (EDTA), according to ICSH recommendations. ESR determination is performed without sample consumption, use of reagents or waste production. Results are accurate, precise and perfectly correlated with those obtained by Westergren reference method. Samples are submitted to standard mixing with precision and accuracy assessment by Quality Control results. 


Ves-Matic Cube 30 Touch offer a maximum throughput of 30 tests per 25 minutes, allowing the continuous loading and permitting also the simultaneous use of main EDTA tubes in the market. 


True ESR with three phases (aggregation, sedimentation and packing) according to Westergren method

  • Use of haemogram tube with EDTA
  • Continuous loading of tubes
  • Patient identification with barcode reader
  • No pre-selection of samples: request from LIS of samples to be analyzed
  • Automatic tube mixing before reading
  • Temperature correction to 18ºC according to Manley nomogram
  • Internal Quality Control
  • Archive of patient results
  • Bidirectional connection to LIS
  • No sample consumption or blood transfer from primary tube to any part of analyzer
  • No reagent or washing solution
  • No liquid or solid waste
  • No maintenance
