P.A.C.E. Credit*

Dr. Francis Lacombe explains how Beckman Coulter's HematoFlow* and CytoDiff* were instrumental to a recent study that tracked blast decrease rates in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients. In addition to the results of this study, Dr. Lacombe will discuss:

  • Limitations of the existing reference method (microscopy) for WBC differential
  • Key functionality and benefits of HematoFlow and CytoDiff
  • How CytoDiff enables efficient, accurate blast count
