A statistical appraisal of manual reticulocyte enumeration was extensively investigated. Statistically, the counting variability among technologists was significantly worse than expected for a counting (Poisson) process. the proportional error associated with each technologist can exceed 39%. The technologist-to-technologist variation is the major source of inaccuracy at all reticulocyte levels and is attributed to the consistent application of individual criteria in reticulocyte identification… CONTINUE READING
