While slide review rates can vary greatly between labs, studies show that on average, more than 20% of hematology samples trigger a manual scan or count.1,2 Reviews are critical to the release of accurate results, but high frequencies can potentially affect the laboratory in terms of both labor and cost efficiency,
leading to lower productivity (billed tests per full-time equivalent).3
Siemens Healthineers-equipped laboratories have a lower slide review rate than their peers, despite the fact that they perform more complete blood count tests on average.*

*The results are based on the specific settings of these labs. Because there is no typical hospital or laboratory, and many variables exist (e.g., hospital size, samples mix, case mix, level of IT and/or automation adoption), there can be no guarantee that other customers will achieve the same results. Results in other cases may vary.
