COUNTING SYSTEMS Impedance counting Impedance counting, first described by Wallace Coulter in 1956,49 depends on the fact that red cells are poor conductors of electricity, whereas certain diluents are good conductors; this difference forms the basis of the counting systems used in Beckman Coulter, Sysmex, Abbott, Horiba Medical and a number of other instruments. 32 Practical Haematology For a cell count, blood is highly diluted in a buffered electrolyte solution. The flow rate of this diluted sample is controlled by a mercury siphon (as in the original Coulter system) or by displacement of a tightly fitting piston.

There is normally considerable diurnal variation in the eosinophil count and differences amounting to as much as 100% have been recorded. 29 Range of basophil count in health See Chapter 2, Table 2-1. 08 × 109/l. 31 REPORTING THE DIFFERENTIAL LEUCOCYTE COUNT The differential count, expressed as the percentage of each type of cell, should be related to the total leucocyte count and the results should be reported in absolute numbers (×109/l). The only time that the percentage of a cell type is required is in the diagnosis and classification of acute myeloid leukaemia, the myelodysplastic syndromes and the overlap myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative neoplasms.

52 The measure of cellular haemoglobin is designated as the cellular haemoglobin concentration mean (CHCM) to distinguish it from the traditional MCHC derived from the Hb and the PCV. If all measurements are accurate, the CHCM and the MCHC should give the same results, thus providing an internal quality control mechanism. The automated MCV and Hct are prone to certain errors that do not occur or are less of a problem with manual methods. These include those resulting from microclots or partial clotting of the specimen, extreme 3 Basic Haematological Techniques 35 microcytosis and the presence of cryoglobulins or cold agglutinins; the last is a relatively common cause of factitious elevation of the MCV because clumps of cells are sized as if they were single cells.
