There are four white cell populations: NEUT, neutrophils; EOS, eosinophils; MONO, monocytes; and LYMPH, lymphocytes. (b) Scatter plots of white cell volume against discriminant function 2 showing three white cell populations: GRAN, neutrophils, eosinophils and basophils; MONO, monocytes; and LYMPH, lymphocytes. (c) Scatter plots of white cell volume against discriminant function 3 showing three white cell populations; BASO, basophils; MONO, monocytes; and LYMPH, lymphocytes. (d) Histogram showing size distribution of red cells and platelets.
The MPV may be inaccurate (LH 750) in the presence of very large platelets as they are not recognised and are excluded from the measurement . For the LH 750, the mean neutrophil volume (MNV), neutrophil distribution width (NDW), mean lymphocyte volume (MLV) and lymphocyte distribution width (LDW) can also be estimated from the VCS measurements.
Inaccuracy can also be introduced into a count if many smear cells (see Chapter 3) are present and are not included in the count. If the smear cells are, for example, lymphocytes, then the percentage and absolute number of lymphocytes will be falsely low and the percentage and absolute number of all other cell types will be falsely high. Smear cells whose nature can be deduced can be counted with the category to which they belong. Otherwise smear cells and any other unidentifiable cells, if present in significant numbers, should be counted as a separate category or the percentage and absolute number of cells of all categories will be erroneous.
