Bernard-Soulier's syndrome, Glanzmann's thrombasthenia
and storage pool disease has become easy through flow cytometry.11 Conditions like acute coronary syndromes, acute cerebro-vascular ischemia, peripheral vascular disease, diabetes mellitus and pre-eclampsia can be serially studied with flow cytometry by detecting activated platelets, platelet derived microparticles and leukocyte-platelet aggregates in the circulating blood.
The CBC in individuals with Glanzmann's thrombasthenia
is usually normal, with an abnormal PFA-100.
