Abstract

Cell counting of bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid is performed manually in routine practice. This has both methodological and inherent errors; however, the accuracy and suitability of automated counting devices have been questioned. In this study, a Coulter(R) Counter D Industrial model was calibrated and then used to measure the total cell count in unprocessed bronchoalveolar lavage fluid, and compared to a standard manual method.
