Sample text

For the LH 750, the mean neutrophil volume (MNV), neutrophil distribution width (NDW), mean lymphocyte volume (MLV) and lymphocyte distribution width (LDW) can also be estimated from the VCS measurements.

In the case of the LH 750 and LH 780, precision is improved by counting white cells, red cells and platelets in triplicate and by extending the counting time if the WBC or platelet count is low. Particles greater than 35 fl after red cell lysis are counted as white cells. The instrument is able to count NRBC and corrects the WBC for NRBC interference [53]. Platelets are counted between 2 and 20 fl, but the curve is extrapolated to 70 fl to include large platelets. Reticulocytes can be counted in a separate mode (see below).

Otherwise smear cells and any other unidentifiable cells, if present in significant numbers, should be counted as a separate category or the percentage and absolute number of cells of all categories will be erroneous. In chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) it is possible to reduce the number of smear cells by adding one drop of albumin to four drops of blood before making the film. ∗ Imprecision The imprecision or lack of reproducibility of a count can be expressed as either the standard deviation (SD) or the coefficient of variation (CV) of replicate counts.
