Abstract

DATE: June 26, 2018
TIME: 06:00AM PDT, 09:00AM EDT, 1500 CEST

Today’s hematology analyzers employ various methods for enumerating platelets, including electrical impedance, light scatter, fluorescence, and immunologic recognition by monoclonal antibodies. While these methods produce an accurate platelet count in the majority of patient cases, circulating abnormalities have been shown to negatively affect the reliability of reported results. The impact on quality varies depending on the specific interference and technology used to determine the platelet count.

In this webinar, different principles used for counting platelets will be reviewed. A case-based approach will be followed to examine the effect of circulating interferences on the performance of each option.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss how platelet counts are determined by different automated methods
  • Compare how specific interferences impact the reliability of platelet counts produced by various technologies
