Essential to patient care, the new chemistry analyzers are currently analyzing blood samples here at SAH! These vital pieces of equipment were part of a year long campaign starting in April 2013 which saw thousands of great donors from the Algoma District working together to raise the necessary funds to equip the lab with these new instruments. The majority of treatment options which physicians make, come from the results in the lab. The chemistry analyzers run and analyze up to 2,500 blood sample tests a day with hundreds of different tests run minutes apart from of each other. Over the course of a year, these instruments run close to a million tests.
