Part Description

LP427008-0   Automated count.optical
Automated hematology analyzers employ either electrical impedance methods, or more recently, optical methods. Optical methods may be important for platelet counting, particularly in cases of thrombocytopenia or microcytosis, where impedance may overestimate the platelet count [PMID: 26629371] .
