  • Causa
    Beckman coulter has determined that additional clarification for the blast suspect messages is necessary. in rare situations, the lh 750, lh 780, lh 500 and hmx analysers may not flag or detect blasts in some blood samples. this is due to limitations in the available technology as well as the properties of blasts in certain samples. if these limitations are not clearly understood or are misinterpreted, in rare situations there could be a delay in the recognition, diagnosis and treatment of conditions associated with blasts in the peripheral blood.
