This article reports an evaluation of the Coulter Counter model S-Plus VI automatic analyser for haematology, and data are presented on linearity, carry-over, precision, accuracy and stability of the instrument, when compared with a model S-Plus IV/D. The three-part differential count provided by Coulter S-Plus VI has been compared with manual eye counting. The results show a good agreement with only 2.5% of discrepancies in 2271 routine samples. Advantages of the new instrument include: reduction of running costs, largely due to manpower saving; simple and easy use, and improved operator safety, there being no need for human contact with blood.
