Malaria Analysis

The most reliable method of malaria diagnostic is through examination with a microscope of thick and thin blood film preparations.

Vision Hema Malaria analyser automatically scans a blood smear and helps specialists to identify plasmodia. The system can scan both thick and thin smears, then creates a gallery of images for review. With the selected number of plasmodium the system calculates parasitemia percentage. Using an embedded Jekel algorithm a specialist identifies the type of plasmodium.

Main advantages:

  • Digital slide of thick and thin smears
  • Jekel algorithm
  • Parasitemia percentage calculation
  • Database for archiving
  • Remote access and network capabilities
  • Bidirectional LIS intergration

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

Vision Hema Malaria follows the following operation principle:

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.

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.

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.

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.
