8] The total cost of a full blood and differential count
The bias and limits of agreements obtained from the Bland-Altman technique are reported in Table 1 for absolute counts and in Table 2 for differential counts
Automated CBC and white blood cell (WBC) differential counts
were performed with Coulter LH750 and Sysmex XE-5000 hematology analyzers.

This histogram, depicted in Figure 1, is used for the routine reporting of nRBCs as part of the differential count

Peripheral blood smears were prepared by Cytospin (Shandon Cytospin-2[TM] Waltham, Massachusetts) and stained with Wrights Stain for manual differential counts
The laboratory participates in the Beckman Coulter Interlaboratory Quality Assessment Program (IQAP), and the NHLS National Quality Assessment programmes for full blood count and CD4 monitoring; it also takes part in the United Kingdom National External Quality Assessment Scheme (UKNEQAS), African Regional External Quality Assessment Scheme (AFREQAS) for CD4 monitoring, and Royal College of Pathologists of Australia Quality Assessment Programme for the automated full blood count and white differential counts
The total leukocyte count was 5,500 cells/[micro]L, with normal differential count
3], and her differential count
, electrolyte level, and urinalysis findings were within normal limits.
Serum urea nitrogen, creatinine, and complete blood count were all within normal limits, with the exception of 50% nucleated red blood cells on differential count
Biological variation of the leukocyte differential count
Cytocentrifuge concentration provides enough nucleated cells to perform a 100-cell differential count
if the nucleated cell count is greater than 3/[micro]L.
Furthermore, variations in the differential count
of MLs in individual patients can lead to unreliable variations in measured cystine because it is expressed per milligram of protein in the total cell preparation.
Thrombocytopenia was observed in all the patients, elevated hematocrit in about three fourths, and leukocytosis with neutrophilia and a left shift in the differential count
in about two thirds.
