For this reason the RBC and the parameters derived from it were measured or calculated on only a minority of blood specimens. More precise and therefore more clinically useful RBCs can be performed on single-channel semiautomated impedance counters (see p. 35), such as the Coulter Counter model ZM, which count cells in BCAC02 3/20/06 15:50 Page 26 26 Chapter 2 an accurately fixed and known volume of diluted blood as they pass through an aperture. Although accurate setting of thresholds is needed, the instruments do not require calibration.

The ICSH has published a selected method that employs 5 minutes centrifugation [6]. A further 3 minutes centrifugation is advisable if the sample is polycythaemic, in order to reduce the abnormal plasma trapping [7]. The microhaematocrit is usually measured on ethylenediaminetetra-acetic acid (EDTA)-anticoagulated venous blood but it can also be performed on capillary blood if the sample is taken into a microhaematocrit tube the interior of which is coated with heparin (2 iu). Plastic (polycarbonate) tubes are available and are safer than glass tubes.

G. g. between 0 and 70 fl, are also included in the count. White cells are counted in a separate channel, the Hb channel, following red cell lysis. NRBC present are mainly included in the ‘WBC’. Histograms of volume distribution of white cells, red cells and platelets are provided (Fig. 7). The fully automated Coulter instrumentsa Coulter STKS, MAXM, HmX, Gen S and LH750 a produce a five-part differential white cell count, which is based on various physical characteristics of white cells, following partial stripping of cytoplasm (Fig.
