The automatic rerun is the process of re running a blood test, from same sample tube by the hematology analyzer itself, after a first hematology test and without performing it manually.
The automatic rerun provides safety benefit by preventing from any potential tube miss identification when rerun manually.
The automatic rerun can be performed upon criteria such as :
- Normal values
- Flags & alarms
- Delta check
When the automatic rerun is combined with rerun rules for performing different tests from the original one, it’s called reflex testing.
