Icon


An iconic laboratory device that sets new standards in terms of features, functions and style. A unit that combines cutting edge technology with a fresh and inspiring design. Technology of yesterday is industrial history tomorrow. Norma Icon ’s innovations* will change the future of hematology. There is no other analyzer like Norma Icon.

  • Icon has a footprint of an A4 sheet of paper and has the smallest dimensions of its class.
  • Despite its ultra-compact sizing Icon has a throughput of 60 samples per hour.
  • Icon can process closed or open vials. The sample mixing and cap piercing mechanism is integrated in the device, and enables using an add-on autosampler.
  • The sample volume is only 9.0 µL, the smallest ever processed by a hematology analyzer.
  • This space-saving device has a 10 inch full HD touch screen user interface that can handle motion sensing gestures and multi-touch inputs providing an entirely new interaction experience with the unit.
  • Norma Icon is designed to be remote-supported. System check, trouble shooting, software upgrade can be carried out at the user’s site at any time if internet access is available.
  • Norma Icon is the first hematology analyzer using a microfluidic chip for hydrodynamic focusing and cell counting. This cutting edge technology* enables reducing reagent consumption by at least 80% compared with analyzers built on the decades-old traditional technology.
  • Small reagent volumes help keep down the wasteful, polluting usage of laboratory chemicals. By eliminating the need of transporting tons of reagents to long distances, and using a “green” result printing concept Norma Icon helps saving a significant part of the running expenses, keeping cost per test low and protecting the environment.

Norma Icon is ideal for cost sensitive, environment conscious users, open to embrace new solutions based on innovative technology* and trendsetting design.
