Test includes:
Immature platelet fraction and platelet count.
Methodology:
Electronic resistance detection enhancd by hydrodynamic focusing and flow cytometry
Synonyms:
Reticulated platelets; immature platelets
IPFB
Clinical significance:
The IPF can be utilized in the evaluation of thrombocytopenia. The IPF is generally elevated in platelet consumption/destruction disorders or in bone marrow recovery. Thrombocytopenia with a low IPF indicates decreased bone marrow production. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/16393688/
