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.
