Use of RBC-O and S-MCV Parameters of Sysmex XE-2100 in a Patient with RBC Cold Agglutination by Hong Wang, Lin Lu, Yun Zhou, Jian Liu, Min Qian, Weiming Tang, Zhang Jie, Shiyang Pan

Sometimes EDTA blood of erythrocyte agglutination cannot be well resolved by incubation at 37°C. In this case report, however, such a specimen was detected from a lymphoma patient at room temperature by using RBC-O and S-MCV parameters of the SYSMEX XE-2100 hematology analyzer. The specimen was diluted with 0.9% NaCL solution at 1:1 before measurement. HCT, MCV, and MCHC, corrected by RBC-O, HGB and S-MCV, were all in their normal ranges. This case indicates that RBC-O and S-MCV parameters of XE-2100 can be used in the routine blood examination of erythrocyte agglutination specimen at room temperature.
