Test conducted by the department


Flow cytometry laboratory has been carrying out immunophenotpying of acute, chronic leukemias, lymhoproliferative disorders, hereditary platelet disorder, red blood cell defects, CD34 stem cell count for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.


It is stabilized whole blood specimens. The laboratories performing test on auto-analyzers should report all the parameters listed in the results sheet. The manually operating labs may reports as many parameters as they feel feasible.


Please assess the retic count (%) on the slide provided. Counting the red cells correctly can be helped by inserting into the eyepiece or cardboard diaphragm with a small hole in the center to reduced the optical field so that not more than 30-35 R.B.Cs should be viewed in a field


The blood films are stained with jenner – giemsa stain. Please report DLC and brieflycomment on R.B.C. morphology i.e. report five noticeable/relevant features observed . Only first five will be included in your assessment. Reporting of diagnosis is not essential, if you do decide to report diagnosis, please mention only one possibility. Wrong diagnosis will results in poor performance score. The slip of clinical summary is inserted inside the slide mailer
