Application Note: Novel Hematological Parameters for Rapidly Monitoring Immune System Responses
21 December 2018

Correctly diagnosing suspected inflammations and infections by clinical examination, biochemical markers and microbiological blood cultures is costly and time-consuming. A fast initial indication would be beneficial since this can point out the appropriate diagnostic tests, avoid unnecessary follow-up tests, and help start or modify treatment faster. Haematological inflammation parameters obtained from a routine blood count on Sysmex’s XN-Series analysers can provide quantitative information about the inflammatory reaction of the patient’s immune system.
