La tarjeta de información de laboratorio explica cómo la aplicación CBC-O, integrada en la extended IPU, puede indicar el origen de un aumento del MCHC contenido medio de hemoglobina corpuscular) y cómo esto permite optimizar los resultados del hemograma y mejorar el flujo de trabajo de laboratorio.
In this clinical case report a patient presented with a dimorphic RBC population after having received multiple RBC concentrates. The two populations, one resulting from the donor cells, can be identified from two distinct peaks in the RBC histogram.
Being diagnosed with haematologic malignancy actually happens either because the patient presents with certain symptoms or – as is becoming increasingly common – there are incidental findings during routine blood screening. This white paper describes how a complete blood count measured on Sysmex XN-Series analysers may reveal significant abnormalities and improve the incidental findings of haematologic malignancies or the relapse of cancer under treatment early on.
Doping with blood, erythropoietin or related substances is an unfair practice in sports and is performed to obtain an advantage over competing athletes. Doping control has made great progress in detecting the use of forbidden substances by employing completely new strategies that no longer rely on the detection of the banned substance itself. What is measured instead are the changes that forbidden doping practice has on haematological parameters.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a severe complication in context of various civilisation diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. With increasing treatment cost along the progression of CKD towards end-stage renal failure (ESRF) and the need for renal replacement therapies, CKD is not only a driver of premature mortality and diminished quality of life of affected individuals, but also puts significant burden on the society and healthcare expenditures. The early detection of kidney damage through a frequent screening of risk patients could help to fight the burden of CKD. Cost-efficient routine urinalysis data could play a vital role in providing valuable information for screening, diagnosing, and monitoring of renal disorders.
This article describes a comprehensive reference interval study for the Sysmex XE-5000 haematological analyser, covering all diagnostic and many research parameters. A special feature is frequency distribution curves for all examined parameters which provide useful insight on the type of distribution for each test.
Urinary tract infections (UTI) belong to the most common bacterial infections and, though suspected cases often turn out to be negative, contribute to high laboratory workloads and empiric prescription of antibiotics, a main driver antimicrobial resistance (AMR). This white paper reviews the strengths of the UF-series in ruling-out UTI, supporting its diagnosis and potential applications to further optimise the UTI laboratory workflow, aiming to fight AMR.
The immature platelet count (IPF#) is a new haematological diagnostic parameter available from a routine blood laboratory test. Discover in this white paper how it can help you to evaluate the effectiveness of antiplatelet medication and forecast the risk of adverse cardiovascular events.
