There are also major medical training systems, for technicians and pathologists, who perform and interpret them.

The devices are class 2. Putting a QBC Star in every primary care clinic improves the quality of care delivered across the board and they are designed toward sensitivity: an automated counter has to have a low threshold for abnormal, which then kicks it to a human for review.

And the techs are trained to kick anything that looks like a blast to a pathologist. And it's not a one-time, in the school house tid-bit of education: every time they do a manual diff, they can't get from their cell counts to the signature block without acknowledging they need to show blasts to a pathologist.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
