A deeper insight about an activation of the immune response of patients can be acquired from newly available diagnostic parameters that support differentiation between inflammation and infection, different pathogenic causes of infection (viral versus bacterial) and different types of immune response: early innate, cellular or humoral immune response.
The Blood Bank mode (BB mode) is an optional mode for blood product measurement and quantification of residual cells left in the manufactured blood products. The front side of the lab information card gives an overview of blood component analysis and explains the benefit of the BB mode. The flip side presents information about sample types, technological requirements, workflow enhancements and specifications of the mode.
Platelets are normally measured by impedance, but when interferences are present, this may lead to a wrong count. There are alternatives methods for platelet measurement that are here explained in detailed, like the fluorescence flow cytometry and the accurate count provided by the PLT-F channel.
To define whether a patient’s results are considered ‘normal’ or ‘healthy’ reference intervals are needed. In this article the prerequisites for reference intervals and different approaches for determination of those are described. Sysmex provides a list of scientific publications that inform about the reference intervals for Sysmex analysers, which can be found in this article.
Patient blood management (PBM) is an evidence-based, multidisciplinary approach to caring for patients who might need a blood transfusion. One important pillar of PBM is to diagnose, reduce and prevent anaemia to avoid transfusions in all kinds of clinical settings. Several studies showed that the reticulocyte haemoglobin equivalent is a parameter for aid in diagnosis and monitoring of iron supply to erythropoiesis.
