Pathology, Histopathology & the Uses of Clinical Equipment

Since ancient times, we have sought to improve our health using medicine and technology. Because of this, applied science like medicine and biology, as well as the scientific equipment and medical devices used to achieve quantifiable results in these fields, have been continuously developed through numerous additive steps, not to mention some incredible breakthroughs. 

The knowledge surrounding human health has grown as a result, and modernized medicine and healthcare has allowed us to live longer, healthier lives.

This focus on our overall health has made clinical diagnostic and medical laboratories incredibly important. They are at the forefront of disease diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. Combining their depth of expertise, as well as various diagnostic medical equipment, clinical scientists and clinicians are able to measure and observe the various aspects of patient health, form diagnoses, prescribe treatments, and monitor progress.

Because clinical labs handle patient care and analyze human samples, medical and scientific professionals focus on various studies or branches concerned with biological tissues or fluids that can be used to identify possible disease or medical conditions. These most commonly include pathology, histopathology, and numerous other studies.

Clinical pathology, on the other hand, not only concerns itself with body tissue and anatomic pathology to determine a diagnosis, but also with examining body fluids, such as blood and urine, as well as cell samples using cytology. 

Pathologists, who specialize in numerous diseases, obtain results through various types of bodily examinations and lab tests, and provides diagnoses through a number of ways, including the interpretation of biopsy and cytology specimens.

For example, clinical laboratories may specialize in histopathology, the study and diagnosis of diseases of the tissue. Combining histology, the study of tissues, with pathology, the study of disease, histopathologists can identify disease in a patient via a tissue sample. 

A histopathology examination can identify numerous diseases, including cancer, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, uterine fibroids, and even infections.

Beyond histopathology, clinical pathology, and anatomic pathology, there are clinical and medical labs that focus on chemistry, microbiology, hematology, immunology, and immunohaematology, or blood banking.

Clinical & Histology Lab Equipment to Lease

Automated Immunohistochemistry Stainers

Immunohistochemistry (IHC) is a common method of immunostaining and is used for diagnosing a range of diseases, and is very helpful as a research tool. Typically, IHC is accomplished using manual staining methods, however, developments in automation have led to a much more efficient workflow, providing high-throughput sample preparation and staining. The devices used are called automated immunohistochemistry stainers, IHC stainers, autostainers, or automated slide stainers.

Blood Bank Analyzers

Blood banks face the same challenges as many other clinical laboratories, and this has shaped the direction of blood bank automation. These challenges vary depending on geography, but almost always include increased workloads, reduced staff levels, higher costs of manual reagents, more rigorous patient safety initiatives, and tighter regulations.

Clinical Chemistry Analyzers

Clinical chemistry analyzers can generally be separated into two categories: Analyzers using standard chemistry and analyzers employing integrated clinical chemistry analysis.

Cryostats & Microtomes

A cryostat is a device used in a wide variety of labs that maintains low cryogenic temperatures for devices, samples, and slides kept within it. The method in which the low temperature inside the device is maintained can vary depending upon the make and model but often is done using a cryogenic fluid bath using liquid helium.

Hematology Analyzers

Hematology is the branch of medicine that studies diseases related to blood. By analyzing a patient’s blood, a general understanding of their health can be reached. Hematology also employs more specific testing to screen for and monitor diseases including leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, as well as types of bleeding disorders such as blood clotting. Such diseases or disorders can affect any of several components of blood, from blood cells, vessels, and proteins to bone marrow, so measuring these can help diagnose and subsequently treat patients.

Immunoassay Analyzers

An immunoassay is a type of biochemical diagnostic test that identifies and quantifies an analyte in a solution by using an antibody or antigen that binds with the specific structure of a molecule as the method of detection. An immunoassay analyzer is an automated instrument that uses immunoassay methodologies to produce accurate immunoassay test results using a variety of techniques. Whether you run dozens or hundreds of tests daily, this reliable and intuitive device can optimize your organization’s performance.

Osmometers

An osmometer is an analytical instrument used to measure the osmolality or osmolarity of different aqueous samples, such as plasma, urine, serum, and biologic drugs. Osmolality can be defined as the measurement of osmotic particle concentration in a solution by weight. The weight is defined in terms of osmoles per kilogram (Osm/kg). An osmole is a unit that describes the number of moles present in a solution, and measures at 1 osmole per 1 mole of dissolved solute in a substance. A mole, simply defined, is the SI base unit for the amount of substance. Osmometers are capable of measuring in milliosmoles, or 1/1000 of an osmole, making these devices highly sensitive and precise. Osmolality can be defined as the concentration of dissolved solutes per kilogram in a solution (Osm/kg or mOsm/kg).

Lease Clinical Laboratory Equipment That Suits Your Needs

Operating Lease Benefits

Operating leases make it easier to keep pace with technological advances in your field. The monthly lease payments can often be lower than monthly financing payments, and may be 100% tax deductible as well, yielding additional cash-savings. Furthermore, when you lease, you avoid the hefty upfront payments required when buying equipment with cash or a loan.

Sale-Leaseback Options

If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale-leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
