Anemia is one the most common disorders of the blood. Anemia has been identified by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a widespread public health issue with social and economic concerns. According to WHO, nearly two billion people worldwide are anemic.
Anemia is a very complex disease due to the fact that there are multiple specific types of anemia (many of which often coexist) that can result from a wide variety of causes. There are five major types of anemia in which various causes can be defined:
- Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA)
- Anemia of Chronic Disease (ACD)
- Vitamin Deficiency Ane
- Anemia of Cancer
- Anemia of Renal Failure
Anemia does not need to be debilitating. Valuable diagnostic information can be obtained from a wide variety of laboratory tests, such as EPO and sTfR, making this a manageable and treatable disease. With unmatched expertise and chemistry, hematology, immunoassay and data management Beckman Coulter is uniquely positioned to provide laboratories with diagnostic tools for complete anemia disease management.
