Analyzers, Laboratory, Hematology, Blood Grouping, Semiautomated
Definition : Laboratory blood-grouping analyzers used to perform blood-grouping tests and process test data; they may generate an interpretation of test results using computing programs. These analyzers are usually modular and perform the analysis with reduced involvement of technicians, using automation in some discrete steps of the procedures (e.g., reagent dispenser, microplate reader, autosampler). These analyzers are typically used in small transfusion centers. Semiautomated blood-grouping analyzers increase the speed and accuracy of testing and minimize reagent use when compared to manual analyzers.
