Cell Count and Differential, Body Fluid
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
The cells are applied to a glass slide by cytocentrifugation. Wright-Giemsa stained slides are examined by light microscopy and a differential is performed. Total nucleated cell count is determined using an automated hematology analyzer or a microscopic counting chamber.(Instructions for Use: Sysmex XE-5000, Sysmex Corporation, Kobe, Japan, 2008)
Day(s) and Time(s) Test Performed Outlines the days and times the test is performed. This field reflects the day and time the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time required before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means assays are performed several times during the day.
Monday through Sunday; Continuously
