  • Innovations in Multivariate Hematology Analysis Recorded: Oct 5 2017 51 mins
    Gert-Jan van de Geijn, Ph.D.
    In this on-demand webinar, Dr. Gert-Jan van de Geijn, renowned hematology expert, researcher and industry leader, discusses new chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) test parameters that better discriminate between bacterial and nonbacterial acute exacerbation. Dr. van de Geijn shares how neutro/lympho ratios and basophils (measured by flow) combined with current C-reactive protein (CRP) tests enable more accurate bacterial detection in COPD patients.

    After viewing this webinar, you will be able to:

    - Assess options based on the limitations of current differentiation tests (e.g., sputum culture and CRP)
    - Apply multivariate analysis results from hematology and flow cytometry technologies to increase specificity
    - Combine tests to improve prediction of bacterial exacerbation in COPD patients to help reduce antibiotics resistance

    For more insight, watch a recorded Q&A session that followed the live webinar.
