Platelet analysis in laboratory hematology

Thomas Nebe
Published Online: 2014-10-08 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/labmed-2014-0034

Zusammenfassung

Die hämatologische Labordiagnostik von Thrombozyten weist eine Reihe von technischen Schwierigkeiten auf und stellt besondere Anforderungen an die Präanalytik. Auch der Umgang mit Aggregationsphänomenen wirft in der täglichen Routine immer wieder Fragen auf. Der Artikel fasst den gegenwärtigen Stand der Thrombozytenzählung zusammen und der notwendigen Differentialdiagnostik.

Abstract

Hematological laboratory diagnostics of platelets is faced with technical difficulties and requires preanalytical considerations. The handling of platelet agglutination needs to be addressed in daily routine. This article summarizes the current state of platelet counting and subsequent differential diagnosis.
