About the Hematology Virtual Lab Simulation

Not only vampires are obsessed with blood – hematologists love blood as well! In the hematology simulation, you will join a biomedical diagnostics lab and learn about the different blood components. You will learn 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?
