A new electronic method for counting platelets from whole blood

, : A new electronic method for counting platelets from whole blood. Blut 32(5): 347-352

Platelets were simultaneously counted in 52 persons with the conventional method of Cronkite and Brecher and with a new electronic cell volume analyzer. The platelet counts estimated by the electronic analyzer were 10% lower than that measured with the conventional method. This difference decreased to 1.5% when the same diluent was used for both methods. The described electronic counting method of platelets in whole blood is a simple procedure, which gives well reproducible and exact results.
