Interpretation and Reporting

Slide 16

December 2010

Based on the data from normal donors, we established reference ranges which are listed here. They are: 0.01% for type III or deficient RBCs and granulocytes, and 0.05 for monocytes. The reason for decreased monocyte sensitivity is in a relatively small number of monocytes routinely available for testing. In addition, there are situations in which we are not able to collect enough granulocytes to reach desired sensitivity, usually because of profound neutropenia of the patient. In these cases, we would indicate in our report that the specimen has low WBC count which may impact the reached sensitivity.
