The BD FACSPresto� Near-Patient CD4 Counter* measures absolute CD4+ cell counts, %CD4, and total hemoglobin (Hb) from a single drop of fingerstick or venipuncture blood for staging and monitoring HIV patients.  This system requires minimal training to operate and can process 10 tests per hour.  Features include a user-friendly touchscreen, unitized dry reagent cartridge, onboard reagent and instrument QC, and automated data analysis.  This talk will discuss the technology and preliminary performance of the BD FACSPresto system in testing HIV patient samples.
*Product under development, not available for sale or use
