Medical laboratory reports provide physicians with essential clues about the patient’s health, guiding them towards a more detailed investigation for proper diagnosis and appropriate management of an existing medical condition. With the increased demand for lab tests, laboratories worldwide are looking for ways to reduce costs, improve response times, and streamline operations. While a lot [...]
Every medical laboratory needs to maintain a quality management system to provide accurate, consistent test results. Transitioning to an Individualized Quality Control Plan (IQCP) is expected to be a major area of focus for laboratories in 2015. The CLIA Individualized Quality Control Plan (IQCP), a risk-based, objective approach to performing quality control testing was introduced [...]
Healthcare systems across the U.S. are lauding the diagnostic efficiency of Stanbio Laboratory's Enzymatic Beta-Hydroxybutyrate (β-HB) assay. Effective assays for β-HB are crucial in diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), a life-threatening complication of poorly controlled or untreated diabetes. According to the National Diabetes Statistics Report released June 10, 2014, up to 29.1 million Americans or 9.3% of [...]
In medical laboratories, electrolyte analyzers are used to measure the amount of specific electrolytes in blood or urine. Doctors order such tests as part of a regular physical exam or to check if a particular medication was effective in managing a patient’s electrolyte levels. There are different types of models available to meet different volume [...]
Upgrade your operations with leased clinical chemistry lab equipment that bring many advantages including latest technology without paying upfront for it.
The demand for medical laboratory equipment is expected to rise in the next 3 to 5 years. Here are some of the main factors responsible for this trend.
Greiner Winged Safety Blood Collection Sets - As the significance of blood tests are increasing, labs should be equipped with safe blood collection sets.
The ADVIA Centaur is a full automated, next-generation random-access immunoassay system. It is also easy to maintain - daily maintenance consists of an automated cleaning process.
All medical lab equipment must meet the necessary standards and lab personnel should be trained to take quality control and improvement seriously.
The efficiency of the centrifuge (and any other lab equipment, for that matter) depends on timely and routine inspection for damage and wear and tear.
