  • Causa
    Siemens healthcare diagnostics has confirmed that platelet clump flags (plt-clm) are generated in the perox channel of the advia 120/2120/2120i haematology system while running cbc/diff (complete blood count / differential) whole blood samples with diff timepac perox 1 reagent lot # 57211, in samples without platelet clumps. the accuracy of the platelet results are not impacted when the perox 1 reagent (lot 57211) is used on the system and a plt-clm flag is generated due to this issue. additionally, platelet results are reported from the red blood cell/platelet (rbc/plt) channel and not measured in the perox channel where platelet clumps are detected. however, the platelet results will be flagged if the clump count is greater than 300, directing the user to investigate the sample.
