Laboratories that perform hematology analysis conduct blood tests such as complete blood count (CBC), blood enzyme test, blood chemistry tests, and blood tests to assess heart disease risk.
A CBC test, often a part of a routine checkup, help a physician detect and diagnose blood diseases, blood cancers and conditions such as anemia, infections, clotting issues and immune system disorders. This test measures the different parts of the blood such as red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, hemoglobin, hematocrit, Mean Corpuscular Volume, and much more.
It hardly needs to be stressed that accuracy and speed is crucial for this essential lab test. As this it is very sensitive to methods of collection and preservation, accuracy can be ensured only if sample collection and processing instructions are followed. The use of a quality hematology system is also extremely relevant to efficient CBC testing.
