BACKGROUND Immature platelet fraction (IPF, %) is a measure of reticulated platelets (RPs), which represents the state of thrombopoiesis. The IPF is obtained from an automated hematology analyzer as one of the platelet parameters. This study was performed to establish reference intervals of IPF and its cut-off values for the differential diagnosis of thrombocytopenia. METHODS Blood samples from 2,039 healthy individuals (1,161 males, 878 females) were obtained to establish reference intervals… CONTINUE READING
