CLINICAL STUDIES AND TRENDS
MDW Biomarker Identified Risk of Severe Infection
Severe Infection (Trend)
MDW biomarker identified a risk of severe infection and reclassified the patient into higher acuity category, in conjunction with current standard of care.
Abnormal MDW 27.3 Changed Patient’s Trajectory
Severe Infection (Trend)
The inclusion of monocyte distribution width (MDW) biomarker in clinical thought process helped physicians to uncover an underlying infection, that could have otherwise been missed, leading to inappropriate therapeutic interventions. We can prevent sepsis by preventing evolution of infection to sepsis.
Multi-center Validation Study Finds 87.6% Auto Verification Pass Accuracy Rate for Urine Analysis Workstation
A multi-center study analyzing 5,359 urine specimens collected from the clinical laboratories of five hospitals set out to establish and validate auto verification criteria for the iRICELL urinalysis workcell solution and improve the test efficiency by ensuring the reliability of the results.
Study Establishes Pediatric Reference Intervals for 47 Hematologic Parameters
In a study published in American Journal of Clinical Pathology, fresh whole blood samples were collected from 566 healthy children and adolescents (birth to <21 years). The samples were analyzed for 47 hematologic parameters on the Beckman Coulter DxH 900. Age- and sex-specific reference standards were calculated based on the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute guidelines.
Hospital Reduces Average Turnaround Time by 83% with HbA1c Advanced
Learn how the University Hospital of North Tees in England experienced highly precise diabetes diagnoses with seamless integration all while reducing average turnaround time by 83%.
