Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) often go unnoticed when only a complete blood count is performed on the patient. Sysmex X-Class analysers can measure the granularity of leukocytes which is often reduced in MDS. NEUT-X, the measure of neutrophil granularity, is an excellent tool to filter samples suspected of MDS in anaemic patients.
- Body Fluid
This SEED article is meant to explain the findings focused on cell count and differentiation for pleural, ascitic, cerebrospinal and synovial fluid as well as for CAPD. Traditionally, body fluid counts are performed by manual counting under a microscope using a haemocytometer, but laboratories now have the option of automating their manual processes using automated haematology or urinalysis analysers. This SEED summarises the advantages and disadvantages of haemocytometry and Sysmex analysers and explains briefly the XN-BF mode.

By combining the WDF and WPC channels both the sensitivity and specificity for detecting reactive and malignant cells is optimised. The measurement technology of XN-Series analysers detects the white blood cell functionality and the novel ‘Extended Inflammation Parameters’ let you quantify activated lymphocytes and neutrophils, and the results can be applied once a malignancy has been excluded.

The fluorescence technology and channel-specific reagents of the XN-Series provide much more than just a cell count. Depending on their cell membrane composition, cells are perforated and labelled differently, disclosing information about the cells’ activity, maturity stage, and malignancy. This white paper sheds a light on how the XN measures cell functionality.
