Health screening and patient monitoring

A complete blood count (CBC) is typically the first test requested to monitor a patient’s health status, and the results form the basis for decision-making regarding further testing, diagnosis, and treatment.

Gain efficiency in health assessments

A CBC test is less expensive than many pathogen-specific tests and is therefore widely requested as an initial test in, for example, fever investigations. A WBC differential count, as part of the CBC test, can give an indication of a virus infection or a bacterial infection that can be treated with antibiotics.

 

Monitoring of patient recovery

Close monitoring of a patient’s blood cell count can be essential in many clinical scenarios. CBC is therefore commonly used to monitor disease progression and treatment of conditions affecting the blood cells.

 

A complete blood count from a drop of blood

Capillary blood sampling can be an option for patients that are hard to puncture such as elderly. As a fingerstick often is easier on the patient, capillary sampling is typically also used with children and critically ill patients.

 

Shorten turnaround time

Early diagnosis and treatment provides health benefits to the patient. On-site hematology testing can help shorten time from sampling to diagnosis and initiation of treatment by omitting the need for sending samples away for analysis.

 

Ensure reliable system performance

Reporting of patient sample results depends on instrument availability. Robust equipment design helps ensure instrument uptime and keep time and costs for maintenance and service to a minimum.
