Biobase Hematology Analyzer

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.

At GM Medical, we have been supplying various hematology analyzers and received reviews from clients on these items. From this response, we have decided to narrow down on one brand that meets all these we pride ourselves in meeting the needs of medical specialists from both small-scale and large-scale medical institutions with effective and affordable equipment. Let’s have a look at some of the analyzers available and their various differences.

But first, let's understand factors to consider before buying a hematology analyzer. There are many brands in the market and knowing what factors to consider comes in handy while choosing.

Hematology is a basic requirement in any medical institution and operates on a daily basis. Being a crucial part of getting samples that determine diagnosis, it’s important to have one that is of good quality and effective storage capacity.

GM Medical understands these factors and that’s why we give warranties for the equipment to place assurance to the client. In addition to that, we are located in Nairobi city hence a client can visit our shops and have a look at the analyzers before purchasing.

A biomedical engineer that offers servicing for these machines after a while is another way of having buyers use the Biobase hematology analyzers with confidence. And finally, offering them at budget-friendly prices which include installation ensures that they are accessible to both start-up clinics and large-scale hospitals within the country and around the regional borders.
