36%–64%) neutrophils. A 200-cell count can provide a more accurate estimate; in the previous example, the ±2SD range will be about 40% to 60%. In a 500-cell count, the range would be reduced to 44%–56% neutrophils. In practice, a 100-cell count is recommended as a routine procedure. However, if abnormal cells are present in small numbers, they are more likely to be detected when 200–500-cell counts are performed than with a 100-cell count. When quantifying the proportion of blast cells when a myelodysplastic syndrome or acute myeloid leukaemia is suspected, a minimum of 200 cells must be counted.

Various systems for performing the differential count have been advocated, but none can compensate for the gross irregularities in distribution in a badly made film. On well-made films, the following technique of counting is recommended. A Tail Body Film too thin Film too thick Ideal thickness FIGURE 3-2 Schematic drawing of a blood film made on a slide. The film has been spread from left to right. An indication is given of the way the white blood cells are distributed.

It is convenient to use different terms to distinguish the manual and automated tests and for this reason the ICSH has suggested that the term ‘haematocrit’ (Hct) rather than packed cell volume (PCV) should be used for the automated measurement. However, it should be noted that, in the past, these two terms have been used interchangeably for the manual procedure. With automated instruments, the derivations of the RBC, Hct and MCV are closely interrelated. The passage of a cell through the aperture of an impedance counter or through the beam of light of a light-scattering instrument leads to the generation of an electrical pulse, the height of which is proportional to cell volume.
