Advanced Optical Hematology Technology for Elevated Analytical Performance

Overview

Dr. Zainab Mukhtar discusses the general principles and capabilities of Abbott’s Advanced Multi-Angle Polarized Scatter Separation (MAPSS™) technology and review a series of cases produced by the hematology system that employs Advanced MAPSS™.

 

Speaker

Manager, Medical & Scientific Affairs, Abbott

 

Objectives
  • Describe Advanced MAPSS™ technology: measurement principles, detectors, reportable parameters, morphological flags, workflow efficiency and demonstration of relevant cases.
  • Discuss RBC/PLT separation using Advanced MAPSS™ in comparison to impedance and that enables additional parameters. Efficiently demonstrate the relevant cases of microcytic hypochromic anemia and schistocytes with intravascular hemolysis.
  • Review platelet analysis, flags and reticulated platelets in comparison to CD61 and impedance methods with a case demonstration using Advanced MAPSS™ technology.
