Jo, a Laboratory Technician at Newmarket Equine Hospital, said:
“We work in a very busy practice that can treat hundreds of horses every year. The ability to analyse blood in-house in a matter of minutes saves our practice valuable diagnostic time and therefore improves patient’s overall treatment. The Samsung PT10V is an extremely useful piece of equipment for out-of-hours and emergency cases because we’ll receive a reading in under 10 minutes without having to wait for the machine to warm up.
“We’re finding the Samsung PT10V very straight forward to use and the simple touch screen is a nice feature. It only requires a drop of blood, insert the cartridge into the analyser and wait a few minutes for the results. Plus, the cartridges are easy to reorder and inexpensive which makes it very cheap for us to run. Our Scil specialist set up the PT10V using the parameters we wanted and had shown us all how to use it within a few hours, it’s been 100 per cent reliable and accurate ever since. It’s now an invaluable piece of equipment we couldn’t be without."
