Leveraging technology and software applications have transformed laboratory operations and patient care delivery, thereby allowing us to improve the laboratory’s value proposition and enhance patient outcomes. The availability of the ARBC application on the Cellavision addresses the final gap in digital cell imaging- the identification of clinically significant RBC morphology. The addition of the ARBC application complements the existing peripheral blood application, thus enabling labs to easily integrate the review of RBC morphology using automated, hands-free artificial neural network technology. The review of RBCs as part of the automated morphological cell examination of peripheral blood smears reduces laborious, manual time-consuming microscopy and allows labs to deliver rapid and more standardized test results.

Objectives:

  • Examine the value of Laboratory information
  • Discuss the impact of the ARBC application on lab workflow and patient management
  • Describe best practices and lessons learned in ARBC applications to lab operations
