BACKGROUND Microwave irradiation has been tried as a replacement for the conventional tissue processing technique in histopathology laboratories for quite some time. Studies have shown that Domestic Microwave Tissue Processing (DMWTP) provides a faster delivery of the tissue sections with a morphology which is similar to that which is seen Conventional(More)
BACKGROUND Pancytopenia is a common hematological entity encountered in our laboratory practice. Evaluating the causes of pancytopenia is essential for the diagnostic as well as therapeutic management of the patients. Absolute Reticulocyte count (ARC) plays a pivotal role in identifying the cause of pancytopenia in most of the cases but it has grossly been(More)
