Abstract: : Impedance technology was a revolution in the history of Hematology. Mispa Count X is the first indigenous 3-part hematology analyzer in India, which works on the principle of impedance technology. : Performance evaluation of Mispa Count X.: The analyzer produces the measurement results of 18 parameters with throughput of 60 samples per hour. Mispa Count X was compared with benchmark analyzers Coulter DxH 800 and Sysmex XN 1000 to validate its performance. : Mispa Count X exhibited a wide linearity range for WBC, RBC, platelet and hemoglobin. The carry over for WBC, RBC, PLT and Hb was estimated and found to be well within the acceptable limits. The r values (> 0.90) and bias estimation of Mispa Count X on comparing with Coulter DxH 800 and Sysmex XN 1000 were acceptable, except for mid cell counts and for MPV. Mispa Count X exhibited good precision with an acceptable CV% (< 10%). The primary parameters of the stored samples were stable at room temperature for 24 hours. : So we conclude our study by proving that the Mispa Count X would be an affordable-reliable alternative for Indian healthcare sector instead of expensive imported hematology analyzers.
