Differential blast counts obtained by automated blood cell analyzers.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Automated blood cell analyzers often read leukemic blasts as normal cells. In this study, we evaluated the 5-part differential patterns of blasts using automated analyzers to determine if they can differentiate among blast types. METHODS Blood samples containing 10% or more blasts were collected from patients with acute leukemia (N=175). The 5… (More)
