Analysis of Malaria

Vision Hema® Malaria Analysis of Malaria

Description

The most reliable method of malaria diagnostic is the microscopic examination of a blood smear.

Vision Hema Malaria analyzer automatically scans a blood smear and helps specialists to identify plasmodia. The system scans both thick and thin smear and creates a gallery of images which can be reviewed by the user. With the selected number of plasmodium the system calculates parasitemia percentage. Using an embedded Jekel algorithm a specialist identifies the type of plasmodium.

Vision Hema Malaria helps to diagnose malaria in accordance with WHO standards.

Operation principle

Screening of a thick blood smear for malaria diagnostics

1. Screening — scanning of a thick smear. Automatic scanning of 100 fields of view. A specialist identifies the presence of plasmodium in a digital slide. If plasmodium is detected, then a thin smear is prepared and scanned.

Scanning of a thin blood smear for malaria diagnostics

2. Scanning of a thin smear. The system automatically scans the slide and performs RBC calculation (up to 800 fields of view). The results are presented as fields of view gallery.

Identification of plasmodium type

3. A specialist validates the type of plasmodium in accordance with counted RBCs. The embedded Jekel algorithm provides a standardized method for identifying the plasmodium type.

Automatic calculation of percentage parasitemia

4. Automatic calculation of the parasitemia percentage. Parasitemia percentage is an indicator of parasites content in blood and it is an element to select the correct treatment.
