Unleashing the Power of the Hemogram
Join our Corporate Lunch Workshop Thursday, September 8th at 12:15 - 1:15 PM CET in the Sala Italia room
In the modern hematology laboratory, manual, microscopic review of a percentage of samples is required as part of laboratory quality. Fortunately, VCS 360 technology identifies populations of cells of interest to direct focus for manual review. VCS 360 technology can analyze cellular morphology and detect the presence of abnormal cells and screen for various pathological conditions.
By attending this workshop, you will learn how VCS 360 technology can improve your daily laboratory routine and support diagnostic decisions. Speakers will connect the latest research on monocyte biology and its practical clinical applications, including those emerging in COVID-19, severe infection and sepsis.
Monocytes are a key component of the innate immune response to infection, exhibiting complex and time-dependent differentiating behavior. Current clinical evidence for the role of the Monocyte Distribution Width (MDW) biomarker across the continuum of patient care will also be presented.
