The clinical applications of mean platelet volume (MPV) have recently broadened far beyond the differential diagnosis of platelet (PLT) disorders to embrace diagnosis and prognostication of a variety of thrombotic conditions. As the potential usefulness of this simple and inexpensive parameter may be challenged by instrument heterogeneity, we investigated the degree of analytical quality and interinstrument comparability. One hundred consecutive inpatient samples were simultaneously assessed on… CONTINUE READING
