23 September 2017 (Saturday) - Fragments
Here’s an article of relevance – impendence based platelet counts can be confused by red cell fragments where optical passed platelet counts can be more reliable.
I’ve never understood why analysers don’t switch from an impedence method to an optical one in cases of low platelets, or where red cell fragments are detected…
Perhaps the new ones do. I shall find out soon.
