Example text

3a compensates for maldistribution between the body and the tail, but not for maldistribution between the centre and the edge, whereas the ‘battlement’ method shown in Fig. 3b tends to do the reverse, since the customary 100-cell differential count will not cover a very large proportion of the length of the blood film. A modified battlement track (Fig. 3c) is a compromise between the two methods. In practice, the imprecision of a manual (a) (b) Inaccuracy With a manual differential count, inaccuracy or deviation from the true count results both from maldistribution and from misidentification of cells.
