Don’t Blur The Edges: Considering The Feathered Edge As A Crucial Aspect Of Accurate Reporting

In a world that demands meticulous attention to detail and accuracy, the speciality of hematology is certainly no exception. The accuracy of platelet (PLT) estimates from peripheral blood smears is essential for reliable reporting. Presence of PLT clumps can introduce uncertainty, compromising the reliability of numerical estimates generated by automated whole blood analyzers.  To address this, an effective system should be able to detect and identify PLT clumps with a sensitivity approaching 100%.

The 7 Solutions Digitization Brings to Labs

Seven solutions: How the most innovative hematology labs are tackling their top threats. Hematology laboratories around the world face similar operational and organizational challenges. A shrinking workforce, increasing testing volumes and case complexity, and manual processes are among the virtually universal barriers to efficiency and quality service.

Bringing digital pathology to more “ologies” will drive holistic patient care

When the medical field first began talking about digital pathology, everyone seemed to naturally gravitate to surgical pathology. But cytopathology, microbiology, and other “ologies” got left behind. So, while tissue pathology reached the digital age, hematopathology and, specifically, bone marrow test procedures, remained frustratingly analog.

What’s killing hematology lab efficiency? Millions of manual PBS reviews

Nearly a quarter of all hematology labs analyze more than 100 peripheral blood smears (PBS) every day, yet the vast majority are still performed manually using an optical microscope. That disturbing statistic is just one creating a growing crisis in the hematology lab. In the age of widespread digitization in healthcare and across industries, hematology laboratory procedures are falling behind. And it's that misalignment that planted the seeds of Scopio Labs.

Tele-hematology is the future. Here’s why.

Tele-hematology is a burgeoning field, in part because the necessities spurred by the pandemic allowed fields like hematology to progress significantly and made remote workflows like tele-hematology an inevitable path forward. Remote view and analysis of scans provides experts with greater flexibility, allows for collaboration and consultation with experts around the world, and improves the overall efficiency of laboratory workflows. Here’s a recap of a recent interview on the topic with Scopio CTO Erez Na’aman by Labiotech.

Go ahead. Get destructive in your lab.

Something like 70% of today’s medical decisions depends on laboratory test results, and clinical laboratories therefore play an absolutely essential role in today’s healthcare system. Yet the most common hematology lab tests like the peripheral blood smear review are still mainly conducted manually with a microscope. They require classifying and counting cells by type and hunting for abnormalities. Does it work? Sure. Is it the best we can do? Not by a long shot. This method is labor intensive, time-consuming, requires continuous staff training, and is subject to relatively large inter-observer variability

What is Full-Field Imaging?

But, what if this high-resolution, large-scale cell morphology was no longer a fantasy? What if instead of being forced to sacrifice field of view or resolution, you could see the big picture and the tiniest details at the exact same time? Enter, Full-Field Cell Morphology.
