KMC to buy cell count analysers to effectively detect dengue
To enable quick counting of platelets in blood samples, the Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) has decided to buy cell count analysers.
This is an important step in the civic body’s efforts to prevent and fight dengue, as platelet count is an important parameter to diagnose the disease.
The KMC has 15 dengue testing centres, which are doing a commendable job. According to a senior official, no other civic body in India has the kind of infrastructure to fight dengue like that available in Kolkata.
