Hematology analyzers can collect vast amounts of data about cell characteristics, that subsequently improve disease detection. Advanced systems can perform a complete blood count (CBC) and classify multiple cell types, including more than the normal five subclasses of mature white blood cells. They also produce improved flagging of abnormal results to aid further microscopic review.
Abbott’s latest hematology system employs an advanced version of MAPSS technology, as well as a learning algorithm to provide enhanced differentiation of blood cells. In addition, analysis of red blood cells and platelets are performed using entirely optical technology, allowing for the introduction of additional parameters.
In this HIT SERIES, Dr. Zainab Mukhatar, Manager, Medical and Scientific Affairs with Abbott Hematology will discuss RBC/PLT separation using Advanced MAPSS and demonstrate the relevant cases of microcytic hypochromic anemia and schistocytes with intravascular hemolysis. Attendees will also review platelet analysis, morphological flags and reticulated platelets in comparison to CD61 and impedance methods with a case demonstration using this technology.
LabRoots will host this webinar on November 20, 2018 at the following times: Europe: 9:00 GMT/WET 10:00 CET / 12:00 MST; Middle East: 12:00 TRT / 13:00 GST; Asia/Pacific: 17:00 SGT / 14:30 IST.
