Hematology test, a synonym for the complete blood count [CBC], is an essential process that constitutes daily examination in any clinical laboratory.
In recent times, technology has evolved abruptly and this evolution has shifted medical departments in a big way. Scientists have been looking for ways to make production easier in all areas and one of them has been modernizing laboratory equipment. Hematology analyzers carry out a number of tests such as white cells, full and complete blood count, coagulation tests, and reticulocyte analysis.
Modern analyzers have been upgraded to offer more features with integrated capabilities and reliable results. In addition to this, they are able to accommodate more samples and produce results within a short period of time.
There have been increasing health insurance costs which have caused a reduction in the national budget for medical healthcare. These conditions force medical institutions in developing countries to opt for cheaper options to do blood tests. Some are fairly good quality while others really can’t deliver.
Due to these factors, the Biobase company reviewed and came up with a solution to fit lab specialists with not just quality and affordable analyzers, but with reliable information for the patients. Hence, the different types of hematology analyzers are either semi-automated or fully automated. Made up of functions similar to the high-end costly CBC machines but still delivering authentic sample results.
