Hematology analyzers are automated or semi-automated systems used to count red blood cells (RBCs) and white blood cells (WBCs) along with other parameters from a small sample of a patient’s blood. These analyzers are typically either benchtop or floor-mounted depending on the volume of samples that can be analyzed during one cycle.
Besides counting blood cells, hematology analyzers can perform 3-part or 5-part WBC differentials which are methods of determining the presence of specific white blood cells based on their physical size. Three-part differentials can identify neutrophils, lymphocytes, and monocytes while five-part differentials can identify an additional two more white blood cell types, basophils and eosinophils.
Most analyzers can also display test results as histograms and scatter grams that clearly display the blood cell counts and types present in a patient’s blood sample. These analyzers can also measure a number of additional parameters such as the presence of HGB (a protein stored in RBCs), platelet count (PLT), and mean corpuscular volume (MCV).
The use of hematology analyzers requires a number of consumables known as reagents and they must be in supply to properly use these devices.
Abnormal blood cell counts can indicate a number of potential illnesses. An abnormal red cell count may indicate polycythemia or anemia, which occurs because of blood loss, failure of the bone marrow to produce RBCs, vascular hemolysis, or deficiencies of iron, vitamin B12, or folic acid. Abnormal white cell counts may indicate allergies, bacterial or viral infections, inflammatory disorders, tumors, tissue destruction, toxic metabolic states, leukemia, myeloproliferative syndromes, parasitic infections, or typhoid fever.
