If hepatocyte damage persists for a long time, liver fibrosis, which accumulates scars in the liver, progresses. Excessive liver fibrosis causes poor blood flow into the liver, resulting in complications. Liver dysfunction can occur as the number of normal liver cells decreases. It leads to cirrhosis, and in severe cases, hepatocarcinoma.
It is essential to detect liver fibrosis early by examination since it has no symptoms in the early stages.
M2BPGi is one of the liver fibrosis blood tests, and this workshop is to share my experience of managing and monitoring patients with liver fibrosis with the M2BPGi test.
Since its foundation, Sysmex has grown by expanding its business model in the in-vitro diagnostics field and developing its business globally. Our business centers on the in-vitro diagnostics (IVD) field, based on our mission of “Shaping the Advancement of Healthcare.” It is expressed in the “Sysmex Way,” the corporate philosophy of the Sysmex Group. We provide high-value-added products and services, aiming to contribute to a fulfilling and healthy society. In the IVD field, Sysmex is ranked seventh globally. We have a leading share of the global market in the hematology field, with a share of more than 50%. Furthermore, in the hemostasis and urinalysis fields, we formed alliances to expand our portfolio and achieve a high share of the global market. Meanwhile, we are building a robust installed instrument base in the immunochemistry field, where we are developing our business, mainly in Asia.
CN Track system is “Hemostasis Automation system” designed to improve work flow in your lab. 1. Smart & Compact Automation system CN Track System which connects the transportation system and the CN series (CN-6000/CN-3000/CN-6500) and automates the overall process of hemostasis test such as analytic and post-analytic. This system contributes to operate laboratory efficiently. 2. Flexibility & Expandability CN Track System provide customized solution depending on laboratory environment, you can expand coagulation solution flexibly by connecting up to three analyzers to system handling up to 1,000 tests/h. 3. Total parameters for Coagulation Disease CN Track System can combine CN-6000 and CN-6500 to measure not only routine coagulation parameters but also special immuno-coagulation parameters with CLEIA method. It provides the overall hemostasis solution that can diagnose hemostasis disease such as Thrombophilia, Hemophilia, Platelet disease and anti-coagulant monitoring and contribute to diagnose and decide the me treatment for patients. With decades of experience in hematology and urinalysis workflow automation and thousands of satisfied customers, you can experience in Sysmex automation solutions for the hemostasis work area.
The Immunochemistry system of Sysmex, HISCL-series, improve the value of diagnostic medicine by showing reliable result, high performance and special markers. 1. High specificity by minimizing non-specific responses With Sysmex’s own Bind/Free Washing process, it minimizes non-specific responses and reduces background of the result. The characteristics of these HISCL-series allow for high specificity implementation, which is a strong advantage for Hepatitis markers. 2. Analyzing time 17min/T for all samples By applying Sysmex’s technology to reaction temperature and antigen antibody reactions in the instrument, all items can be reported results in 17 minutes and show throughput up to 200 test/h. 3. Small sample volume 10~30㎕ for all parameters All tests can be tested with small sample volume(only 10-30㎕), reducing the burden of insufficient sample quantity during pediatric sample testing or re-test. The reason it can be tested with fewer samples is that higher sensitivity is implemented using the highly sensitive substrate SDP-Star®. 4. Special markers : M2BPGi, Presepsin The HISCL-Series has a variety of tests held only by Sysmex to diagnose and manage diseases early. Liver fibrosis blood marker M2BPGi which can screen and monitor liver disease and Presepsin for sepsis marker are available on the HISCL-series. This improves the value of blood tests and contributes to the development of diagnostic medicine.
The XN-9100 is a scalable, modular automation system, meeting the needs of labs across any size, complexity, and specialty. Decreased turnaround time and optimized labor utilization while maintaining high-quality patient results may be achieved through automatic workload balancing, hands-free rerun/reflex testing, and fully automated reflexive slide preparation. 1. Flexibility The XN-9100 is a fully automated hematology analyzing system that combines up to nine modules and is the only system that can connect with Hematology analyzer and Slidemaker to a Digital image analyzer for meeting all needs in the laboratory. The XN-9100 is optimized for Rerun/Reflex rules to fully automate slide reviews that have relied on manual work by automatically performing peripheral blood slide making and image analysis for abnormal samples during analysis. 2. HbA1c connectivity The XN-9100 can make the HbA1c as well as the CBC test fully automated through a single EDTA tube by connecting to Tosoh's HbA1c analyzer, HLC-723 G11. This dramatically improves sample loading, which relies on manual methods, to optimize workflow in the laboratory enabling pre- and post-analysis as needed. 3. Sorting/Archiving system TS-10 is a system that automatically sorts and archives samples according to the needs of the laboratory. It also enables a variety of connection patterns to reduce the risk of mistakes or infections by reducing unnecessary manual works and to maximize work efficiency by connecting to the XN-9100 to build an optimized automated system. 4. Integrated hematology middleware SWAM is a middleware optimized for laboratory data management, enabling integrated data management such as patients and QC, and digital image viewer to confirm patient-specific blood analysis results as well as scattergrams, flag messages, and cell images on a single screen. In addition, SWAM can dramatically improve the quality of work in the laboratory by automating various paperwork required for the Clinical Laboratory Accreditation Program.
