Haematology is a specialist field of internal medicine that concerns the physiology and pathology of blood and the detection and treatment of blood diseases.

We use state-of-the-art SYSMEX XN-3100 technology to differentiate blood counts with a high degree of reliability, which enables us to quickly detect pathological changes in the blood and promptly identify cell reduction or propagation associated with suspected diagnoses such as anaemia or leukaemia. This suspicion can then be confirmed and diagnosed accordingly through microscopic differentiation.


Range of analyses

  • Haemogram: haemoglobin, haematocrit, erythrocytes, indices, platelets and leukocytes
  • Automatic differentiation: five leukocyte cell populations
  • Reticulocytes
  • Microscopic differentiation of blood counts
  • Malaria testing
    • Samples:
      • EDTA blood (at least 2 mL if taken from the veins or 200 µL if taken from the capillaries)
      • Blood smears (unstained)
  • Cell count/differentiation in synovial and cerebrospinal fluid
    • Samples
      • Puncture specimens (synovial and cerebrospinal fluid)
  • Blood sedimentation
    • Samples
      • EDTA blood (venous at least 1 ml)



Suspected clinical diagnoses such as a haemorrhagic tendency or thromboembolism/thrombosis can be confirmed or ruled out using the relevant parameters.


Range of analyses

  • Global testing: Quick, PTT, thrombin time, fibrinogen and D-dimers
  • Thrombophilia screening: antithrombin III, protein S/C, lupus anticoagulant, functional APC resistance
    • Samples
      • Citrate-to-blood ratio 1:10
      • Citrate plasma (frozen)



Blood group serology demands the highest level of quality and safety, which is why we process the samples using a fully automated device. Positive sample identification from the primary sample excludes the possibility of samples getting mixed up.


Range of analyses

  • Blood typing, including rhesus factor, phenotype and Kell
  • Alloantibody screening (indirect Coombs test)
  • Haemolysis (Coombs direct)
  • Cold agglutinins
    • Samples
      • EDTA blood (preferably)
      • Whole blood (ideally using separating gel)
  • Newborn diagnostics (blood group, Rhesus and direct Coombs test)
    • Sample material
      • Umbilical cord blood


Malaria / Parasites

Parasitaemia such as malaria, microfilariae, trypanosomes and Babesia is detected and typed in the peripheral blood by means of a smear/thick blood film.

  • Samples
    • EDTA blood


Foetal haemoglobin according to Kleihauer

Detection of foetal erythrocytes in the circulation of pregnant women

  • Sample material
    • EDTA blood
