Abstract

A COMPARITIVE STUDY OF ESR BY MODIFIED WESTERGREN METHOD AND VESMATIC CUBE 30 TM

Dr. Malabika Mahato* and Dr. P. Karkuzhali

ABSTRACT

Aims: The aim of study is to compare the ESR values by VesMATIC cube30™ against the modified Westergren method. Materials and Methods: This is a cross-sectional study conducted at pathology laboratory in SBMCH, Chrompet. The samples taken were as per the recommendations charted out by International Council for Standardization in Hematology (ICSH) for comparing automated and modified Westergren method. Results and Conclusions: The analysis revealed a low degree of agreement between the manual and automated method. Over all whole ESR data analysis shows, mean difference 1.2±3.032 (95% limits agreement,-4.742 to 7.142) for 1 hour. The fully automated system VesMATIC cube30™ for ESR measurement and manual ESR readings are very close and also satisfying the 95% agreement limit. Hence, both methods can be used, but automated erythorocyte sedimentation rate analyzer improve work flow, turnover time and laboratory safety by minimizing contact with blood samples. So it is preferable to use automated method.
