Preemies' Blood Type Tied to Risk for Necrotizing Enterocolitis

Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and focal intestinal perforation (FIP) are two of the most common emergencies of the gastrointestinal tract in preterm infants with very low birth weight (VLBW). The etiology and pathogenesis of NEC and FIP remain poorly understood. More...

Optical Genome Mapping Enables Constitutional Chromosomal Aberration Detection

Optical genome mapping (OGM) is a novel method that fills this void by being able to detect all classes of structural variations (SVs), including copy number variations (CNVs). OGM is being adopted by laboratories as a tool for both postnatal constitutional genetic disorders and hematological malignancies. More...

Targeted Locus Amplification Validated for Lymphoma

Structural variation (SV) in the genome is a recurring hallmark of cancer. Translocations (genomic rearrangements between chromosomes) in particular are found as recurrent drivers in many types of hematolymphoid malignancies. More...

Genotyping Helps Avoid Needless Bone Marrow Biopsies in African-Americans

Bone marrow biopsies may be used unnecessarily in some African American individuals who are genetically predisposed to having relatively low white blood cell counts. More...

MRD Assessed by Multiparameter Flow Cytometry in Transplant-Eligible Myeloma

Multiple myeloma (MM) treatment has considerably improved in the past 15–20 years. The current paradigm for transplant-eligible newly diagnosed MM (NDMM) patients consists of induction, stem-cell mobilization and autologous stem-cell transplantation (ASCT), followed by consolidation and/or maintenance. More...

Monocyte Distribution Width Evaluated as a Sepsis Indicator

Most current automated hematology analyzers have enhanced cell counting functions including the addition of new cell types such as nucleated red blood cells or immature granulocytes, making it possible to obtain a precise quantification of peripheral blood cells in pathological conditions. More...

Leukocyte Differential on Hematology Analyzer Compared and Evaluated

A complete blood count (CBC), also known as a full blood count (FBC), is a set of medical laboratory tests that provide information about the cells in a person's blood. The CBC indicates the counts of white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets, the concentration of hemoglobin, and the hematocrit (the volume percentage of red blood cells). More...
