The RBC, polychromatophil, and thrombocyte counts could also be obtained, but, because they were not reported by the laboratory, these values could not be assessed for agreement.
However, all cell counts, including those not compared with manual techniques such as RBC, polychromatophil, and thrombocyte counts, were in the range of what is typically observed in birds.
The objects were then successively filtered into RBCs and polychromatophils by using filtering rules determined with CPA.
The high number of cell digital measurements were used in CPA to filter RBCs and polychromatophils by using the classifier tool.
