In this webinar, Dr. Michael Samoszuk will discuss the correlation between images of urine sediment particles captured on the iRICELL3000 and images viewed manually under the microscope using actual patient samples. Attendees will learn how these images compare and how automated microscopy helps to reduce user subjectivity in microscopy by standardizing the process.
In this webinar, Dr. Michael Samoszuk will discuss the correlative relationships between urine chemistry analytes and the particles noted under the microscope. Attendees will learn how using the knowledge of these correlations can optimize parameter setting for improved laboratory workflow.
In this webinar, Dr. Michael Samoszuk will discuss how red blood cell data reported from urine chemistry test strip analysis can correlate to red blood cell data gathered from the microscope, even when the data appears to be conflicting. Attendees will discover some of the underlying factors that could cause this to occur and learn how to minimize reporting inconclusive or inaccurate results.
In this webinar, Dr. Barbara Zimmer will discuss the mechanisms of antibiotic resistance that are most concerning to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Attendees will receive an in-depth review of the classes of beta-lactamase resistance found in Enterobacteriaceae and the challenges associated with detection in the laboratory. P.A.C.E. credit is available for your participation.*
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men. Fortunately, it can be detected early by monitoring PSA levels. However, PSA tests have limited specificity for cancer, resulting in numerous unnecessary biopsies each year, which creates the need for a more precise test to help with prostate cancer detection. In this webinar, Dr. Vernon Mustoe will discuss how a simple blood test can help provide more accurate information on what an elevated PSA level might mean and the probability of finding prostate cancer on biopsy. P.A.C.E. credit is available for your participation.*

Dr. Mikael Roussel from the University Hospital of Rennes, France, will lead a discussion around the organization of the cell morphology and flow cytometry core laboratory. Hear his tips using Beckman Coulter's hematology solutions to improve management of patients with lymphocytosis. P.A.C.E. credit is available for your participation.**
Dr. Francis Lacombe, M.D., Ph.D., Université Hôpital, Haut-Lévêque, Pessac, France
Join Francis Lacombe, M.D., Ph.D., head of the hematology/automation laboratory and director of flow cytometry at the Université Hôpital, Haut-Lévêque, Pessac, France, to learn how Beckman Coulter’s HematoFlow* and CytoDiff* were instrumental to a recent study that tracked blast decrease rate in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients.
Alan Neal, CSci, MSc, FIBMS, quality manager and lead of specialty, hematology, at Pathology Associates
Learn how Beckman Coulter’s hematology and laboratory automation technologies have helped standardize procedures, deliver consistent turnaround time, reduce manual intervention, and achieve high auto validation rates. Alan Neal will share how his laboratory implemented Beckman Coulter automation and LEAN manufacturing principles.
Join Beckman Coulter, for a webinar led by Sam Terese, president and CEO of PCL Alverno, focusing on their recent laboratory experiences. Learn how they were able to improve quality and productivity in their network—and discover the impact of true standardization from instrumentation to informatics—by adopting a continuous process-improvement culture and implementing cutting-edge automation and informatics.

In this presentation we will re-visit an often overlooked parameter in the CBC, the MPV. This parameter has critical clinical applications, such as discriminating between thrombocytopenias caused by bone marrow disease (low platelet production) versus those caused by increased platelet destruction in the circulation.
