Hematology analyzers are indispensable instruments in any clinical laboratory setting. These highly specialized tools count the number of white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets to help physicians diagnose diseases such as infections, anemia, viruses, diabetes, genetic problems, and cancer. Fully automated and semi-automated hematology analyzers are available. Modern analyzers and quality hematology reagents [...]
Automated hematology analyzers available now provide new additional parameters, enabling earlier and more precise diagnosis. The Cell-Dyn 1800 manufactured by Abbott Laboratories is an automated hematology analyzer that provides an 18-parameter blood count and operates at a throughput of 60 specimens per hour. The device provides fast, accurate results and differential screening in a compact, [...]
The complete blood count (CBC) test is a broad screening test to check for anemia, infection, and many diseases. Performed on automated hematology analyzers, this panel of tests evaluates the different components of blood: white blood cells, red blood cell (RBC) count, hemoglobin, hematocrit and more. Popular for its efficiency, the QBC STAR Dry Hematology [...]
Clinical testing laboratories, hospitals, and research institutions require quality hematology analyzers and reagents for conducting tests to diagnose diseases such as infections, anemia, viruses, diabetes, genetic problems, and cancer. Labs can choose from fully automated and semi-automated analyzers with the ability to regulate plasma drug level for both therapeutic and illicit drugs. In its new [...]
Hematology analyzers are used in clinical testing laboratories, hospitals, and research institutions to determine the number of white and red blood cells, platelets and hemoglobin levels in blood samples. Made up of multiple analytical modules with unique sample preparation processes, this medical lab equipment assists in the diagnosis of infections, anemia, viruses, diabetes, genetic problems, [...]
Modern hematology analyzers come with advanced capabilities and can process hundreds of samples accurately within a short span of time. Hematology lab tests include assessments of blood formation and blood disorders. Examples of hematology tests include full blood count, white blood cell counts, complete blood counts, reticulocyte analysis, and coagulation tests. Hematology analyzers differ in [...]
2014 was a very eventful year globally for the clinical diagnostics industry. Milestones were set and new products and services launched. Deadly diseases such as Ebola struck and U.S. government agencies, the World Health Organization (WHO), and other domestic and international partners came together to battle the virus. We have put together some of the [...]
Automated flow-based analyzers can perform a white blood cell (WBC) differential, count red cells, WBCs and platelets, and measure parameters such as hemoglobin concentration. However, preparation and review of a blood smear microscope slide is essential for a wide range of samples processed by flow-based analyzers. Manually viewing blood films on a glass microscope slide [...]
