  1. Siemens CentraLink qc

    We had a representative from CentraLink set ours up at first- I think that was a part of the service they offer. Then they did a web call to go over it with us. They are very helpful and have been with any questions since then.
  2. High Platelets on LH500

    We have had a few patients that the doctor alerted us to that had a higher normal range platelet count on our LH500 that had also been tested at other labs and their results were lower, normal range. We did a study comparing our results to our main hospital lab's (we are a Cancer Center clinic) results to ours and their is a definite positive bias. Is anyone else seeing this? We also looked into the fact that we run our CBC's almost immediately after being drawn and the data comparing immediate results to 2hour post draw results didn't really confirm anything.
