The authors report the advantages of a new anticoagulant-antiaggregant mixture that avoids the deleterious effects of ethylenediaminotetraacetic acid (EDTA) on mean platelet volume and also prevents EDTA-induc platelet clumping. It is suitable for routine cell counting and sizing with the Coulter Counter® S-Plus STKR. The values of the common hematologic parameters agree well with those from EDTA-treated samples and are stable for at least eight hours after sampling.

Abstract

The authors report the advantages of a new anticoagulant-antiaggregant mixture that avoids the deleterious effects of ethylenediaminotetraacetic acid (EDTA) on mean platelet volume and also prevents EDTA-induc platelet clumping. It is suitable for routine cell counting and sizing with the Coulter Counter® S-Plus STKR. The values of the common hematologic parameters agree well with those from EDTA-treated samples and are stable for at least eight hours after sampling.
