The "OTHERS" percentage values obtained for each sample were compared with a 100 cell differential performed using CellaVision DM96 and a manual 200 cell differential performed using light microscopy. It was ensured that all samples were from patients without haematological malignancies, because these patients may have leukocytes present in their peripheral blood which are not activated B-lymphocytes but are also present in the abnormal population that is reported as the "OTHERS" value (1).
