The quality of results with Digital Cell Morphology
Dr. Karan Paisooksantivatana is a Director of a Hematology Laboratory in a hospital in Bangkok, Thailand. He started to explore the Digital Cell Morphology (DCM) technology with the CellaVision DM9600 in 2015 to complete the missing automation gap in the hematology workflow. “We find the DCM systems fit right to our direction of laboratory automation and auto-verification.” Being one of the leading medical schools in the region, the hematology laboratory pays particular attention to the quality of results. “It becomes clear from the evaluation study that blood differential results are more consistent with the implementation of DCM.” The hospital now has four systems (DI-60 and DM9600) across two laboratories. During COVID-19 surge, the laboratory installed CellaVision Server Software to combine results from different systems into a single database. This implementation provides a more streamlined slide review process, allowing for delegation of tasks efficiently with limited number of staff. “We have never before experienced such flexibility with staff management and ease of operation.”, says Dr. Karan Paisooksantivatana.
