Performing manual white blood cell differentials in a hospital hematology lab can be a laborious and subjective process. While this methodology has changed little over the years, the pressures on hospital hematology labs continue to build. Cost reductions, staff shortages, and rising patient expectations are driving laboratory leadership to explore new solutions that improve productivity as well as the quality of care.

It reviews how a new technology, automated cell imaging analysis, can be employed as a “lab assistant,” to yield greater operating, financial, and quality of care benefits.
