A patient case showing early detection of latent iron deficiency, that would not have been detected in a normal routine blood count or blood smear is described. A low RET-He (reticulocyte haemoglobin equivalent) value triggered a confirmatory test and lead to prompt treatment of the patient.
A blood count is part of almost every medical check-up and, as such, one of the most frequently ordered laboratory tests. Several research studies show how Extended Inflammation Parameters (EIP) can support infection diagnostics by measuring WBC immune cell activation from a CBC + DIFF.
The intended objective of this article is to highlight the importance of early detection of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The diagnosis of CKD often requires the input of many disciplines alongside that of the primary health caregiver. It is common for patients with CKD to also have other chronic conditions, including but not restricted to hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
Abnormal RBC results generate extra workload for laboratories and require careful interpretation to guide treatment options. This white paper describes common RBC diseases, both acquired and hereditary, that are frequently encountered in a routine laboratory, and presents how intelligent interpretation of blood counts and algorithms can help identifying these conditions. Subsequent confirmatory tests lead to improved turn-around times.
During HSCT patients suffer from many critical conditions such as thrombocytopenia or infections, as well as it is necessary to closely monitor the engraftment. This white paper explains how a Sysmex haematology analyser can answer your clinical demands.
A deeper insight about an activation of the immune response of patients can be acquired from newly available diagnostic parameters that support differentiation between inflammation and infection, different pathogenic causes of infection (viral versus bacterial) and different types of immune response: early innate, cellular or humoral immune response.
The Blood Bank mode (BB mode) is an optional mode for blood product measurement and quantification of residual cells left in the manufactured blood products. The front side of the lab information card gives an overview of blood component analysis and explains the benefit of the BB mode. The flip side presents information about sample types, technological requirements, workflow enhancements and specifications of the mode.
