The Astrim is a noninvasive hemoglobin monitoring device that uses near-infrared radiation. We studied the usefulness of this device for patients with hematological disorders. We measured hemoglobin levels 309 times in 140 subjects, using an automated hematology analyzer (K-4500) and the Astrim. The coefficient of correlation between Hb levels with the(More)
The bone marrow aspiration test conventionally has been performed by visual methods, using a light microscope, because automatic blood cell analyzers cannot adequately capture erythroblasts and immature granulocytes (IGs) (Tatsumi et al.: Osaka City Med J 1988;34:135-146; Tatsumi et al.: Am J Clin Pathol 1986;86:50-54). With the development of the XE-2100(More)
The newly developed QA-810V is an optional unit for the determination of five-part white blood cell differentials. It can be used together with the same manufacturer's haematology analyser which has been used in relatively small-sized laboratories. The present study evaluates the basic performance of the QA-810 V and the MEK-8118 haematology analyser using(More)
A 68-year-old male visited Hospital A for treatment of epistaxis, his chief complaint. He was told that he had an easily-bleeding tumor in the nasal cavity. Based of biopsy, a diagnosis of amelanotic melanoma was made. Operation was performed for removal of the tumor. About 8 months after discharge, he visited Hospital B with complaints of lumbar pain and(More)
The R-3000 reticulocyte analyzer uses flow cytometry with an argon laser as its light source. This analyzer stains residual RNA with auramine O to provide a reticulocyte maturation differential. Using the R-3000, we analyzed 119 samples of bone marrow (BM) and peripheral blood (PB) from 111 patients with hematologic disorders. Parameters were reticulocytes,(More)
