Clinical Utility of Immature Platelet Fraction
Clinical Utility of Immature Platelet Fraction

Advances in hematology testing offer parameters useful in assessing challenging conditions such as thrombocytopenia. This presentation provides an overview of immature platelet parameters (IPF% and IPF#) and discusses their clinical utility. Case studies will be presented to highlight the value of these parameters in assessing bone marrow activity and effective thrombopoiesis.

IMMATURE GRANULOCYTE (IG) POPULATIONS MAY IMPROVE THE ASSESSMENT OF INFECTION AND SEPSIS
IMMATURE GRANULOCYTE (IG) POPULATIONS MAY IMPROVE THE ASSESSMENT OF INFECTION AND SEPSIS

The diagnosis of sepsis is complex due to the wide variety of nonspecific symptoms and the absence of a definitive diagnostic marker. Total and differential blood leukocyte counts are some of the tools used in the clinical investigation of sepsis. Laboratories can now report on the population of immature granulocytes with a high degree of accuracy through the Sysmex IG parameter, recognized as an infection / inflammation biomarker and an important indicator of sepsis
