HRH LAB – WHERE QUALITY COUNTS!

The Coagulation analyzer is a SYSMEX CA 1500. This analyzer measures the time it takes for the specimen to form a clot. This is useful in patients who take medicines such as coumadin or heparin, which prevent clotting. This analyzer also performs a test helpful in the Emergency Department evaluation for patients who may have a VTE (venous thromboembolism) or blood clot formation.

Beckman DXC 600 is a bidirectional automated chemistry analyzer. This state of the art instrumention was implemented in Feb 2017. HRH chemistry department offers over 40 chemistry tests including glucose, lipids, therapeutic drug levels, electrolytes, and kidney and liver function tests. All Chemistry tests offered are performed daily and available to your
physician via the computer interface.

HRH Phlebotomists are a team of onsite trained professionals who perform the venipunctures (blood draws) on all patient ages. Over 100 patients are drawn each day at HRH, including outpatients, inpatients, nursing homes, ASU and the Emergency Department.

The Lab is equipped with an Axio Zeiss microscope which was purchased by the Foundation. This microscope allows 10X, 50X and 100X oil immersion to view/count blood smear slides. An internal camera allows for a picture of a smear to be sent to the HRH consulting Dahl Chase Pathologist immediately online.

HRH Lab is affiliated with the U.M.P.I. MLT program and teaches a student on site each spring semester. All technical areas are taught by the Laboratory supervisors in each department. Many of our current employees are graduates of this program.
