Inaccuracy can also be introduced into a count if many smear cells (see Chapter 3) are present and are not included in the count. If the smear cells are, for example, lymphocytes, then the percentage and absolute number of lymphocytes will be falsely low and the percentage and absolute number of all other cell types will be falsely high. Smear cells whose nature can be deduced can be counted with the category to which they belong. Otherwise smear cells and any other unidentiiable cells, if present in signiicant numbers, should be counted as a separate category or the percentage and absolute number of cells of all categories will be erroneous.
Particles can be counted and sized either by electrical impedance or by light scattering. Automated instruments have at least two channels. In one channel a diluent is added and red cells are counted and sized. In another channel a lytic agent is added, together with diluent, to reduce red cells to stroma, leaving the white cells intact for counting and also producing a solution in which Hb can be measured. g. impedance technology with current of various frequencies, light 30 Chapter 2 scattering and light absorbance.
By bar‐code reading), mixing it, transporting it to the sampling tube and checking it for adequacy of volume and absence of clots. Some are also linked to an automated ilm spreader. To avoid any unnecessary handling of blood specimens by instrument operators, sampling is usually by piercing a cap. Apart from the measurement of Hb, all variables depend on counting and sizing of particles, whether red cells, white cells or platelets, and some variables also require determining other characteristics of the particles.
