A clinically important but challenging laboratory procedure
Performing blood and body fluid differentials using manual microscopy is a laborious and time-consuming laboratory procedure that’s highly dependent on the availability of experienced personnel. In general, as hematology analyzers have improved, the total number of manual differentials has decreased but the significant clinical impact of wrong diagnosis still necessitates the around-the-clock onsite presence of experts in morphological identification. This increases labor costs, a major issue in today’s cost sensitive healthcare environment. In addition, it’s a known fact that there is substantial inter- and intraobserver variability in this manual examination process, which makes it challenging for laboratory managers to manage consistency and safeguard testing quality.
