In this study we compared the classification assessed from CrCl (creatinine clearance 24h urine(More)
INTRODUCTION Recent automated hematology analyzers (HAs) can identify and report nucleated red blood cells (NRBC) count as a separate population out of white blood cells (WBC). The aim of this study was to investigate the analytical performances of NRBC enumeration on five top of the range HAs. METHODS We evaluated the within-run and between-day(More)
