Abstract

Canine reticulated platelets (r-PLTs) i.e., juvenile PLTs reflecting thrombopoiesis can be measured automatically with the hematology analyzer Sysmex XT-2000iV using manual gating options. However, the impact of interferences on r-PLT measurements performed with the gates published previously (Pankraz et al., Vet Clin Path 38:30-38, 2009; Gelain et al., High fluorescent platelets fraction in macrothrombocytopenic Norfolk terrier, 2010) is largely unknown. The aim was to compare different published gates for measurement of r-PLTs with the Sysmex XT-2000iV with an own, optimized gate ("Oellers-gate") and to establish reference intervals (RIs) in > 120 dogs. Data of 362 measurements of diseased and healthy dogs were analyzed retrospectively. Several gates were applied and RIs for r-PLTs and platelet indices were established for pet dogs and a group of 153 healthy Beagles kept under defined housing conditions. Intra-assay precision (CV) was also assessed. In 30/362 samples, interferences consistent with small erythrocytes/reticulocytes were seen in the previously published gates but not in the "Oellers-gate". Good correlation was found between the different gates (rs: 0.88-1.00). RIs for the "Pankraz-gate", the "Gelain-gate", and the "Oellers-gate" were 0.0-1.2, 0.2-3.7 and 0.2-3.9 % respectively. CVs were ranging between 22 and 41 %. Optimization of previously published gates minimized interferences of small erythrocytes with r-PLT measurements.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 27 July 2016.
All research outputs
#17,811,358
of 22,881,154 outputs
Outputs from BMC Veterinary Research
#1,684
of 3,054 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#265,733
of 364,027 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Veterinary Research
#24
of 45 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,881,154 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 19th percentile – i.e., 19% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,054 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.8. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 364,027 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 45 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 35th percentile – i.e., 35% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
