Part Descriptions

LP65367-2   Nucleated cells
Nucleated cells are defined as any cell with a nucleus; the types of nucleated cells present depend on the specimen source. White blood cells are a common type of nucleated cell and can be further broken down into types of white blood cells (e.g., neutrophils, lympohcytes, eosinophils); mature red blood cells typically do not have a nucleus. One important application of the nucleated cell count and differential is in bone marrow analysis. Nucleated cells found in bone marrow include myeloid cells, which include blast cells, myelocytes, segmented neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils, monocytes and plasma cells, and erythroid cells (erythroblasts, or immature red blood cells). The total number of nucleated cells (TNC) is important as well as the myeloid:erythroid ratio and both types of information can be used together to help differentiate between different disorders. [PMID:18822060] In addition, bone marrow transplants with a higher non-erythroid nucleated cell dose are associated with better outcomes for the transplant recipients.

LP7238-1   Body fld
The LOINC "Body fld" System represents body fluids other than serum, plasma, blood, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid. When a LOINC term with the System "Body fld" is used, the specific specimen source or body fluid type should be reported elsewhere with the result. Where more specific terms for pleural, peritoneal, synovial fluid, etc. exist, we encourage you to use the more specific terms. In contrast to "Body fld", the System "Asp" in LOINC represents the fluid withdrawn during an aspiration procedure from an abnormal collection of fluid, such as from an abscess or cyst. "Asp" is used for abnormal fluid collections that are aspirated, while "Body fld" is used for named body fluids, such as synovial fluid or peritoneal fluid, that are not inherently pathologic.
