Kurzevaluation des QBC-Vet Autoread-System


Wegmann, D; Hofmann-Lehmann, Regina; Lutz, Hans (1997). Kurzevaluation des QBC-Vet Autoread-System. Tierärztliche Praxis, 25(2):185-191.

Abstract

The QBC-Vet Autoread-System (QBC = Quantitative Buffy Coat) is an advanced version of the OBC-Vet Haematology-System, to which an automatic reader and a printer have been added. In addition to the determination of haematocrit, haemoglobin, MCHC, white blood cell, granulocyte, lympho-/monocyte and platelet counts, measurement of eosinophils and neutrophils in dogs, and the estimation of reticulocytes and nucleated red blood cells in both dogs and cats are possible. The aim of this study was to evaluate the QBC-Vet Autoread-System with respect to its suitability in veterinary practice. Samples collected from 213 mostly ill animals were analysed and the results compared with conventionally measured values. The system was found to be easy both in handling and interpretation of results. Accuracy was found to be good for the majority of the parameters (correlation coefficients: haematocrit r > 0.96, WBC r > 0.89). The printed buffy coat profile was found to be very useful to verify accuracy of results immediately and to prevent misinterpretations. Although this is a preliminary study with a small number of samples, the QBC-Vet Autoread-System was found to be a true improvement over the older system and will be very useful in veterinary practices.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
