Platelet Count from a drop of blood PC100™ PLATELET COUNTER

The PC100 Platelet Counter is a highly portable point-of-care device that accurately counts cells (platelets / thrombocytes) in minutes.

The automatic cell counter for thrombocytes or platelets is able to accurately count platelet concentrations in whole blood as well as in Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). The platelet counter is a device which removes the need to count thrombocytes manually and is a cost effective, small and a flexible alternative to flowcytometers. The measurement principle is based on patented optical imaging technology. All parts that come into contact with blood are disposable – no contamination, no cleaning time. The total blood sample preparation and automatic counting is typically done within 15 minutes.

Evaluation of the analytical performance of the PC100 platelet counter

In a study published in May 2021 in ‘Thrombosis Journal’ the closeness of agreement between a newly developed point-of-care PC100 platelet counter and two reference methods (Sysmex® XP-300, Sysmex® XN-9000) in measuring platelet counts in whole blood and platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) was assessed. Using blood of 119 individuals of which 74 were used to prepare PRP samples.

Results show a median difference of − 1.35% and − 2.98% occurred in whole blood platelet count between the PC100 platelet counter and the Sysmex® XP-300 and Sysmex® XN-9000, respectively. A strong linear correlation (r ≥ 0.98) was seen in both cases and regression equations indicated neither a constant nor a proportional bias between the methods. Direct comparison of the two reference methods revealed a median difference of − 1.15% and a strongly linear relationship (r = 0.99). Platelet count in PRP resulted in a median difference of 1.42% between the PC100 platelet counter and the reference method, Sysmex® XP-300. While the difference between two methods increased with concentration of platelets in PRP, a strong linear relationship remained throughout the whole measuring interval indicated by the high correlation coefficient (r = 0.99). Assessment of the predicted bias at predefined platelet counts showed that the bias in platelet counts falls within the acceptance criterion for both whole blood and PRP measurements.

Conclusions: Our results show that the PC100 platelet counter can be used interchangeably with the reference methods for determining platelet counts.
