Volumetric impedance method
22 parameters, including 3-part WBC differential: WBC, LYM, MID, GRA,
LYM%, MID%, GRA%, RBC, MCV, HCT, HGB, MCH, MCHC, PLT, MPV, RDW-SD, RDW-CV, PCT, PDW-SD,* PDW-CV,* P-LCR,* P-LCC*
Long-term sample stability studies on blood specimens drawn in K2- and K3-EDTA collection tubes at room temperature showed no significant clinical variation for all parameters between 30 minutes and 7 hours post-phlebotomy. MPV results can show instability in the first 2 hours but are stable afterwards.
Three cyanide-free reagents (Diluent, Lyse, and Cleaner)
*Parameter not approved for measurement in the U.S.
