Summary

Childhood cancer is curable. Recovery, however, depends not only on the skill of doctors or the availability of drugs. Equipment that provides timely diagnosis and continuous monitoring is crucial too. The hospital in Lviv (Ukraine) where 200 children are treated every year requires a modern centrifuge that will help to make more accurate diagnoses and to better control treatment progress which is essential in such complicated diseases as blood cancer or blood clotting disorders.

Challenge

Ukrainian doctors are good at doing their job, but their qualification is not enough when there is no necessary hospital equipment. The hospital uses a cytocentrifuge to prepare at least 400 samples per year. There is no similar equipment in any other hospital in Lviv, and it is impossible to transfer biological fluids to another city because the cells are destroyed quickly. Lack of necessary equipment means stopping children's treatment.

Solution

The installation of a new centrifuge with the necessary components and accessories assures the quality of diagnosis. The doctors prescribe a more accurate and efficient treatment. It is possible to carry out additional or repeated tests without taking samples again. The new equipment ensures better monitoring of the treatment progress and to prevent dangerous complications. At least five children benefit from the use of this equipment every day.

Long-Term Impact

Providing the hospital with new equipment guarantees high-quality treatment for kids who are ill now and for kids who will be diagnosed with blood diseases in the future. The availability of such modern equipment to doctors guarantees approximating the general level of medical assistance for children in Ukraine to the best world standards.
