Microscopic Blood Screening

Microscopic blood screening, or darkfield microscopy is a way of studying live whole blood cells under a  microscope.  This gives you the unique opportunity to see your own blood cells on the monitor screen.

How is the examination carried out?

Using a very fine needle, a drop of blood is taken from the finger and placed on a glass slide.

The blood is then examined through a darkfield microscope.  The patient watches the process via the viewing monitor. Observations are made on variations in the size, shape, ratios & fine structure of red cells, white cells, platelets and other structures in your blood.
