Hematology

In this simulation, you will join a biomedical diagnostics lab and learn about the different blood components. Will you be able to identify different blood disorders based on your blood analysis results?

About This Simulation

Not only vampires are obsessed with blood. Haematologists love blood as well! In this simulation, you will join a biomedical diagnostics lab and learn about the different blood components. You will be taught how to make peripheral blood smears, how to use an automated blood count analyzer and how to interpret the results from these experiments. Will you be able to identify different blood disorders based on your blood analysis results?
