BEDFORD, Mass., June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Automation is revolutionizing white cell differential analysis, and it's delivering across-the-board benefits for hospital hematology laboratories, according to a newly published management brief. The brief is free and available to download at http://www.medicacorp.com/sysmex.

Performing manual white blood cell differentials can be a laborious and subjective process in hospital hematology laboratories. While the methodology has changed little over the years, the pressures of cost reductions, staff shortages, and rising patient expectations continue to build. The revolutionary solution - is automation.

The brief reports how automation has helped labs achieve improvements relating to cost, staffing, productivity, and quality-of-care related issues. Even small- to mid-volume hematology laboratories can benefit.

The brief discusses:

  • Productivity and turn-around time
  • Automating and simplifying process elements
  • Advanced imaging and pattern recognition
  • Matching automation capabilities to laboratory workflow
  • Achieving true walkaway automation
  • Standardization of differential analysis
  • System maintenance
