Urinary tract infections (UTI) belong to the most common bacterial infections and, though suspected cases often turn out to be negative, contribute to high laboratory workloads and empiric prescription of antibiotics, a main driver antimicrobial resistance (AMR). This white paper reviews the strengths of the UF-series in ruling-out UTI, supporting its diagnosis and potential applications to further optimise the UTI laboratory workflow, aiming to fight AMR.
Diagnostics play a major role in the rational prescription of antibiotics. Well-known antimicrobial susceptibility tests (AST) are reliable tools for the phenotypic determination of resistance to antibiotics . Several solutions to support AST performance are available on the market.
This clinical information card focuses on the clinical use of IPF# (immature platelet fraction abolsute count) for coronary artery disease patients. The parameter helps monitoring the efficacy of antiplatelet drug therapy and assessing the risk of future cardiovascular thrombotic events.
The immature platelet count (IPF#) is a new haematological diagnostic parameter available from a routine blood laboratory test. Discover in this white paper how it can help you to evaluate the effectiveness of antiplatelet medication and forecast the risk of adverse cardiovascular events.
The treatment of immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) can be challenging. The immature platelet count (IPF#) can help, making it easier to monitor the efficacy of the different treatment mechanisms and assessing bleeding risks. This white paper explains how.
This poster includes information about bone marrow cytology and histology. As well as a table containing indications for bone marrow examination and decision criteria for bone marrow cytology or bone marrow histology. And finally images of normal bone marrow cytology.
A patient case showing early detection of latent iron deficiency, that would not have been detected in a normal routine blood count or blood smear is described. A low RET-He (reticulocyte haemoglobin equivalent) value triggered a confirmatory test and lead to prompt treatment of the patient.
For the sake of the patient - it is of critical importance that physicians and other healthcare personnel are able to confidently rely on laboratory test results in order to make meaningful and safe decisions about the diagnosis and treatment of patients entrusted to their care.
