Hematology

This unit offers a hematologic service for hemostasis, coagulation and special tests. It is mainly devoted to elementary study of blood, determination which is measured globally and percentage erythrocyte series (red), leukocyte (white) and platelet of the most common animals, companion animals, exotic animals for slaughter species with its special features. The data may turn out to be very important in certain pathological situations of varying clinical entity, always accompanied by cytologic and immunologic studies. 

Another field of study in this unit is coagulation, along with special tests that helps determine disorders in the process of blood clotting.
