      Daniel Pelling is the Site Manager for Blood Sciences at St. Mary’s Hospital, part of North West London Pathology, based in London, UK.  He has extensive training in the clinical laboratory and hold multiple degrees, including the Higher Specialist Diploma in hematology. He has over 20 years of experience in haematology, specializing in morphology and its correlations with disease and ancillary studies such as genetics and immunophenotyping. He also hold degrees and has experience in forensic medicine. In his spare time, he leads educational efforts in the hematology community. He teaches at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, is the lead tutor for the English programme stream of the multilingual international education programme e-HEMATimage. He also holds advisory positions in UK NEQAS, Institute for Biomedical Sciences and the European Hematology Association. Dan is also a SCUBA diving instructor, an avid ice-hockey fan and has a deep interest in and knowledge of the mediaeval history of the Languedoc region.

    The enumeration and analysis of blood cells with automated haematology analysers have significantly improved in recent years due to advances in cell detection technologies, which have reduced the manual differential rate. Despite these improvements, morphology remains a keystone of haematology. A thorough understanding of the principles and mechanisms behind Romanowsky staining methods can enhance laboratory practice in areas such as implementing new instruments or procedures, and troubleshooting poor staining performance. These ideas and suggestions are exemplified by a selection of patient cases showing how analytical results are complemented by good quality blood films and staining.


    Learning Objectives:

    • Overview of the mechanics behind slide making and the importance that morphology brings to clinical diagnosis
    • Implementation of staining protocols and consideration factors for your laboratory
    • Troubleshooting stain quality and factors to potentially adjust
    • Case reviews of morphology, accompanied with results from haematology
