Trousdale Medical Center’s laboratory has sophisticated equipment that processes hundreds of tests daily. The lab processes tests for inpatient orders, as well as testing for personal physician offices. We also have a transfusion program that dispenses lifesaving blood products.
We strive to keep the newest technology to ensure accurate and efficient results in order to provide better service to our patients.
Some of our technology includes:
- The Siemens Dimension EXL, which is used to assess how a diabetic patient is managing his or her disease and assess the general health of patients.
- The Sysmex XS-1000i, a hematology analyzer, is primarily designed to do blood counts. This state-of-the-art piece of equipment does a six-part differential, which means it counts the blood cells in a sample and categorizes these microscopic cells into five categories based on each cell's characteristics. In a short amount of time this machine can help , detect infections, assess a patient's ability to produce cells appropriately in the bone marrow or help determine if a cancer patient needs a blood transfusion because of a low blood platelet or hemoglobin and hematocrit count.
