Challenge

Full Blood Count (FBC) was formerly performed under a microscope by manual enumeration of stained blood components. This laborious task proved tedious and often inaccurate. With such a high frequency of use, a simple blood test, particularly the Full Blood Count, ranks among the most relied on tests during cancer treatment.

Solution

The field of hematology, the study and analysis of blood, has proven to be a vital and necessary tool for health care and medical diagnostics. In the cancer clinical setting, a Full Blood Count (FBC) is recommended frequently or before each chemotherapy cycle. Automated hematology analyzers has become the "gold standard" in the field. This is due to its capability of sorting and analyzing 10,000 - 25,000 cells in a given second.

Long-Term Impact

Analyzers are critical to obtaining accurate and automated CBC test results in various environments. It's ability to be accurate and precise in quantitative blood tests is coupled with its ability to perform multiple tests on a single platform. These enable fast and efficient results in all forms of related treatment Modern hematology analyzers come with onboard storage for thousands of patient reports and also allow for customization with patient identification of blood samples.
