Microscopic Diagnostic Screening
It is a live blood and dry blood analysis, that provides us with a lot of information in a short time and only one drop of blood is necessary. The practitioner is able see many elements of the blood and more importanly irregularities that can indicate health issues, including red blood cells, white cells, yeast forms, cholesterol crystals, liver stress, bacteria, quantity of free radicals among others. We use this test along with the conventional blood work to do a better evaluation.
Through live cell microscopy our patients are be able to observe immediate test results of their live blood cells. This procedure is different from traditional blood tests because it analyzes a drop of living blood as opposed to looking at the cell counts and chemical composition of preserved blood in a lab test. Blood cells can live up to 20 minutes. During this time a video camera provides a high definition image to a monitor for live cell analysis. The blood is magnified to 1,000 times under a dark field microscope, which can uncover subtle changes missing from traditional lab blood test results.
