ADAM-rWBC is an analyzing device that counts the number of
residual leukocytes in a blood component for transfusion.
Targeting the leukocyte, the ADAM-rWBC uses fluorescent dye to perform cell dyeing and automated cell counting. Automated cell counting
eliminates user bias or subjective interpretation that can be found when
counting residual leukocytes using other methods.
Introduction
Technology
- Mechanical
White blood cell counting for residual leukocytes may be performed
manually using a Nageotte chamber. Limitations to this method include
(1) propensity for the staining of artifacts; (2) is only appropriate for
use with very low cell counts, (3) the testing is time consuming and
(4) interpretation may be subjective. Other devices that count residual
leukocytes can be costly and very user technique dependent.
NanoEnTek has developed the ADAM-rWBC, which is based on fluorescent microscopy techniques for counting cells. The ADAM-rWBC utilizes sensitive fluorescence dye staining, LED optics and CCD detection to make provide accurate and reliable leukocyte detection.
To use the ADAM-rWBC, a blood sample is mixed with a Propidium
Iodide (PI) stain and directly pipetted onto a disposable plastic slide.
The slide is then loaded onto a precision stage. The ADAM-rWBC system automatically focuses on the slide, and the cells that have been
stained are scanned by a sensitive CCD camera. The image results are
automatically processed and displayed on the instrument’s LCD screen
interface.

Introduction
Technology
- Viability
measurement
ADAM-rWBC is based on the staining of mammalian cell DNA using the
fluorescent dye, Propidium Iodide (PI), a nucleic acid dye. When used
with RNase, PI stains only cellular DNA. In the case of blood samples,
white blood cells (with DNA-containing nuclei) are stained while platelets and red blood cells, (without nuclei) are not stained.
The ADAM-rWBC kit consists of r-Solution and the disposable 1 test rSlide. For absolute counting of residual leukocytes, appropriate sample
preparation is needed. After mixing the sample with the r-Solution and
loading into the r-Slide, the number of total leukocytes is automatically
calculated and displayed on ADAM-rWBC.

CAUTI O N:
At low temperatures (≤10 °C), allow the device to warm up
for 10 minutes at ambient temperature before use.
To ensure correct operation and stable performance,
install the ADAM-rWBC in a location which meets the following conditions:
• Use at room temperature.
• Do not use in cold rooms.
• Not exposed to direct sunlight.
• Not subject to direct or continuous vibration.
• Not subject to intense magnetic or electromagnetic fields.
• Not installed in high humidity environments.
• Area free from corrosive gases or other corrosive substances.
• Area with very little dust or other airborne particles.
• Area with a 10 cm minimum space around the instrument for
proper air flow.
• Do not place anything on top of ADAM-rWBC device.
Power on and
initial display
1) Check the connection of the main device power cord.
2) Make sure that the main power switch is in the “I” (ON) position.
(On the rear side of the main device.)
• When you turn on the ADAM-rWBC, it will go through self diagnostic
tests. If you get an error message, please contact your local distributor
or sales@nanoentek.com. If boot up is successful and no errors are
detected, the home screens will be displayed as below.

General operation
Preparing the
test sample
Precision stage calibration
Each time the ADAM-rWBC is powered on, calibration of the precision
stage is performed using the Standard beads provided in the ADAMrWBC Kit. Calibration is successful if the test result is within ±10% of
the value on the vial.
Refer to the ADAM-rWBC Kit Package Insert for specific instructions.
• The ADAM-rWBC must be calibrated after each start up and at least
once each day of use.
1. Let beads equilibrate to room temperature before use (~10 minutes).
2. Mix by shaking gently, including upside down.
3. Load 100µL of the beads into the r-Slide. Let settle for 40-60 seconds.
4. Insert bead loaded r-slide into ADAM-rWBC main device and press
‘ ‘ to start.
For Leukocyte Reduced samples
Blood samples should be tested within 48 hours after leukocyte
reduction.
The blood sample is mixed, and an aliquot removed and diluted with
r-Solution for staining. After staining, a sample is loaded into the r-Slide
and left to settle. After settling, the r-Slide is inserted arrow end first,
right side up, into the ADAM-rWBC and counted. Refer to the ADAMrWBC kit Package Insert for specific instructions.
CAUTI O N:
• Avoid bubbles as they may negatively affect results.
• Do not re-use r-Slides. Re-use of r-Slides may result in
errors in the result value.
• Do not use r-Solution, r-Slides or Standard beads after
their expiration date.
• Store r-Solution at 2~8 °C when not in use. The expiration data is
one year. Do not use after the expiration date shown on the
label. Open r-Solution may be stored at 2~8°C and used for up
to 6 months, but not past the expiration date.
Warni ng:
The instrument will not detect incorrectly diluted samples.
Also refer to ADAM-rWBC Kit Package Insert.

· To avoid a potential shock hazard, always connect the grounding terminal of the instrument
and that of the wall outlet properly. The power cord should be connected to a grounded,
3-conductor power outlet.
·P
osition the device so that there is sufficient length for the cables and their respective
connections.
·S
et the main switch to “ O ” (OFF), unplug the power cord, and lock the stage before moving.
· If the instrument is broken or dropped, disconnect the power cord and contact an authorized
service person. Do not disassemble the instrument.
