Boule has signed an agreement with Karolinska University Laboratory, Clinical Chemistry, for collaboration on system validation and product development in hematology. Boule owns all rights to the data generated by the project.
“There is a constant need to challenge our systems with particularly difficult patient samples to ensure that the system is capturing those, as well as confirming that the performance and handling of results match the needs further up the care chain. Karolinska University Laboratory has extensive knowledge of hematological blood analysis and is a very attractive partner to work with for the development of future products,” said Ernst Westman, president and CEO of Boule Diagnostics AB.
Boule has established itself as a leading developer and supplier of blood cell counting on a growing global market and is represented by distributors in more than 100 countries. Boule’s systems for blood cell counting are used in small and medium-sized hospitals, clinics and laboratories in an outpatient setting and serves as a screening before the patients with confirmed irregular test results and possible pathological blood picture are passed on to specialized diagnosis and care.
