Platelet aggregates

Platelet aggregates

It is of utmost importance to always report a correct value for the platelet concentration. When detecting thrombocytopenia the laboratory should therefore double-check that it is not due to platelet aggregates (->) (pseudo-thrombocytopenia). In a haematology analyser they are usually automatically identified and flagged. In a blood film they are mostly located at the feather edge or the lateral edges.
