Hematology: Automated white blood cell differential counting by flow-analysis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

2 Scopus citations


Rock, in the introductory article to this volume, describes the steps involved in technology assessment in laboratory medicine: '(1) validation of the laboratory technology in terms of analytical reliability, (2) demonstration of its clinial usefulness, (3), analysis of its costs, benefits, and risks, and (4) comparison with alternative technologies. This present article addresses principally the first and last of these steps with respect to a cetury-old laboratory test, the visual white blood cell differential count, against which innovative instrumentation for automated leukocyte differential counting is now being measured.
