A suspension of blood cells is broken into micro-droplets and passed through a laser beam. ® Cells absorb and scatter the laser light. Each cell type produces a characteristic "signature" depending on its size, nuclear configuration and cytoplasmic inclusions. ® The most sophisticated models generate a five-part differential, platelet count, reticulocyte count, and red cell indices. ® Fully automated models require no dilution or other sample preparation. ® Advanced units include particle standards in the diluent.
Advantages ® The QBC is an efficient and economical way to screen blood samples. ® Instrument is simple to operate and relatively fast, producing results in about 7 minutes making it especially valuable for pre-anesthetic, acute care and in-office screening procedures. ® Hematocrit, hemoglobin, and white cell and platelet counts correlate well with reference methods. ® System flags abnormal or unexpected result. Limitations ® The major limitation is the inability to produce a complete differential count.
The smaller RBCs that lack central pallor are spherocytes. These cells are frequent in dogs with immune-mediated hemolytic disease. They can also occur in fragmentation hemolysis. A ghost RBC (arrow) is noted in the center of the field and suggests some degree of intravascular lysis (100x). Figure 4-26 Spherocytosis. If this were a feline blood smear, the RBC morphology would indicate regenerative anemia. The small RBC without central pallor would represent normal feline erythrocytes. However, this is canine blood and the small RBCs without central pallor are spherocytes.
