  • Product Description
    Lite DM (Lite Data Manager) || Software Version(s): Versions and lower || Product Model #: D00A00224D || The Lite DM (Lite Data Manager) is a software application developed by HORIBA || Medical intended to receive, store, and manage Startup, Patient, and Quality Control || (QC) results from an ABX Micros 60 Hematology Analyzer or ABX Micros CRP 200 || Hematology Analyzer. Only one instrument connection is allowed per each Lite DM || workstation. The Lite DM application runs on a PC within a Windows Operating || System platform. Data transmitted from the instrument to the Lite DM workstation is a Serial RS-232 unidirectional ABX Format communication. The Lite DM can act as a standalone data manager for data received from the instrument, or allow transmission of this data to a Host (LIS  Laboratory Information System or EMR  Electronic Medical Record system). || Following the completion of each blood sample analysis performed on the connected HORIBA Medical hematology analyzer, results are then communicated (uni-directional) to the Lite DM workstation. Results received will display to the user in a specific color coding format indicating any normal or panic reference range violations. Results are then rejected or accepted by the user for final reporting - formatted to guidelines stipulated by CLIA. At no time are any results interpreted; only reported for review and appropriate action.
