One way to keep your cell morphology skills up to date

Take the chance to participate in CellaVision’s global proficiency test experiment and find out how similar your differential results are compared to those of your peers.

The on-line test provided to us by Margit Grome from Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen contains one May-Grünwald-Giemsa stained slide with around 96 WBCs.

The patient information for the test is as follows:

  • Young male, 21 years old
  • B-Hemoglobin: 5.7 mmol/l (8.3 to 10.5)
  • B Leukocytes: 59.5 x 10^9/l (3.5 – 8.8)
  • B-Platelets: 52 x 10^9/l (145-390)

It only takes a few minutes!
