  • Precise Cell Volume Analysis Mar 15 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Elena Lazarova, M.D.
    In this webinar, Elena Lazarova, M.D., esteemed clinical biology specialist, researcher and speaker, will discuss the value of precise cell volume measurement in differentiating for blood disorders and its importance in effective patient care. Gaining information about cell volume at different stages in the maturation process provides important insight into a patient’s underlying pathology and may have added value in the diagnosis of blood disorders. Beckman Coulter offers precise cell volume measurement* through the advanced technology and sophisticated algorithms of its uniquely designed DxH 800 hematology systems.

    After the webinar, you will be able to:

    • Cite the challenges laboratories face in differentiating for rare types of anemia
    • Outline the benefits of flow cytometric reticulocyte analysis, available on the DxH 800 platform
    • Understand the value of precise cellular volume measurement* to aid in the differential diagnosis of anemia

    *For research use only and not cleared by the FDA for clinical diagnosis
    **P.A.C.E. credit is available for your participation.

    Presenter:
    Dr. Elena Lazarova earned her M.D. degree from the Medical University of Varna, Bulgaria, in 2002.

  • A Simple Blood Test for Better Prostate Cancer Detection Recorded: Oct 5 2016 59 mins
    Dr. Vernon Mustoe
    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. Vernon Mustoe is one of Beckman Coulter’s medical affairs managers, supporting customers with advanced clinical and technical issues. Having obtained his undergraduate and graduate degrees from New York University, he spent over 23 years in the clinical laboratory. Most recently, he was the Director of Clinical Chemistry and Assistant Director of Laboratory Services at Sisters of Charity Medical Center in Staten Island, N.Y. He has also taught Clinical Pathology at the Bayley Seton Physician Assistant School, as well as Clinical and Anatomic Pathology at the College of Staten Island Campus of the City University of New York. Dr. Mustoe has been with Beckman Coulter since 2001.
