Pharmacist Tran Thanh Hai, Sales Manager of Siemens Healthcare Vietnam introduced ELF (Enhanced Liver Fibrosis), a new test in detecting liver fibrosis. This test was delivered by Siemens’s Advia Centaur, an automatic immunoassay system which enables physicians to diagnose as well as to stage and to treat the liver fibrosis.
