Blood smear essentials: Unveiling the critical role in haematology

Clinical Pathology | 57 mins

In this webinar, we will review how to approach blood smear examination with a systematic approach and integrate these findings with haematology results. Blood smear examination has the ability to confirm or refute results provided by haematology analysers. In certain instances, it can also offer information that cannot be obtained through other methods, and this information may hold important clinical value.
