Study Reaffirms HbA1c Analyzer Meets Performance Standards

In a newly published paper, a point-of-care (POC) hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) analyzer has again been confirmed to meet the performance criteria of the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (IFCC). More...

Increased Immune Reaction Associated with Myeloproliferative Neoplasia

Patients afflicted by myeloproliferative neoplasia, which are a group of chronic malignant bone marrow diseases, bear a mutation in their hematopoietic stem cells. The mutation leads to the bone marrow producing too many blood cells, which thickens the blood. More...

Neutrophil-Lymphocyte Ratio Associated with Cancer Patient Survival

There is emerging evidence showing a significant relationship between overall survival (OS) in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients and weight change during chemotherapy or chemoradiation. More...

New Genetic Variants Discovered in Blood Group Systems

On the surface of the red blood cells are proteins and sugar molecules, in which small differences give rise to different antigens. The ability to identify and match blood group types is important for blood transfusions, but also in pregnancy and before certain types of transplantation. More...

New Integrated Hematology Analyzer Launched

Currently, hematology testing requires a larger blood sample from a given patient, which needs to be run across several different systems in order to get the full set of results. This is labor- and time-intensive, and potentially provides inconsistent results, as slide images are difficult to interpret. More...

Prolonged RBC Storage before Transfusion Increases Extravascular Hemolysis

Red blood cell transfusion, the most common procedure performed on hospitalized patients, is an indispensable component of modern medicine and establishing an adequate blood supply depends on the ability to store donated red cells safely. More...
