Is this some kind of project for a class? If not, hand it over to
hematology. If so, get a medical technology text book and look up blood
cell counting. To do it right requires special counting slides that are
etched with grids.

Hi all...
We have never done a manual WBC count before and my advisor has asked me
to get a count of WBCs (primarily nuetrophils and lymphocytes) in
wright's stained peripheral blood smears.  What is the general protocol
for a manual count? Do you count WBC's inb relation to RBCs or just
WBCs, the whole slide, or just representative sections?


P.S - this is for rat sample, not human
