Sepsis requires fast treatment for the best outcome, but is notoriously difficult to diagnose. Monocyte distribution width (MDW) is a parameter that gaining traction in the diagnosis of sepsis and may also be useful in predicting severe outcomes from COVID-19 infection. CLI caught up with Lorenzo Maggia, Product and Scientific Senior Manager at Beckman Coulter Europe, and […]

Pixel-based analysis of pulmonary changes on CT lung images due to COVID-19 pneumonia Soya E, Ekenel N, Savas R et al. J Clin Imaging Sci 2022;12:6 doi: 10.25259/JCIS_172_2021
Since the 1960s, the use of dried blood spot (DBS) technology for newborn screening (NBS) and monitoring of patients with inherited metabolic disorders (IMDs) has become routine in most parts of the world.
Accurate interpretation of laboratory tests is essential to diagnosis and monitoring of many pediatric disorders. Hematology test results in children cannot be interpreted using adult reference intervals owing to the vast changes that occur throughout childhood from the neonatal period to adolescence. Consequently, the Canadian Laboratory Initiative on Pediatric Reference Intervals (CALIPER) programme has recently […]
Cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass is associated with significant alterations in the hemostatic system. Standard laboratory coagulation tests are frequently used to assess coagulopathies and to guide hemostatic interventions. However, these tests present major limitations. Viscoelastic testing in conjunction with the implementation of a specific algorithm for coagulation management in cardiac surgery enables better control […]
Researchers at Kobe University and Hiroshima University have successfully developed a bio- marker that will enable Parkinson’s disease to be rapidly and inexpensively diagnosed from blood serum samples.
BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) says their new high-throughput molecular diagnostic combination test for SARS-CoV-2 and Influenza A/B, is the second test available for the BD COR PX/MX System to have been CE marked to the IVD directive 98/79/EC.

A remarkable discovery and collaborative effort have revealed a new type of triterpenes, a group of organic compounds which are an important source of many medicines. Until now, all triterpenes were believed to be derived from squalene, itself a type of triterpene. However, for the first time, researchers witnessed biosynthesis, the formation of complex compounds […]
