thrombocyte

 [throm´bo-sīt]
platelet. adj., adj thrombocyt´ic.

plate·let

(plāt'let),
An irregularly shaped, disclike cytoplasmic fragment of a megakaryocyte that is shed in the marrow sinus and subsequently found in the peripheral blood, where it functions in clotting. A platelet contains granules in its central part (granulomere) and, peripherally, clear protoplasm (hyalomere), but no nucleus, is about one third to one half the size of an erythrocyte, and contains no hemoglobin.

multifiliis and Saprolegnia sp, the neutrophil and monocyte percentages were significantly higher in the parasitized group, but the number of thrombocytes was equivalent between the two groups (Tavares-Dias et al., 2002).
The common methods usually in practice for thrombocyte estimation are--
Immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is a syndrome that reduces platelet levels, and it is caused by the development of autoantibodies against thrombocytes. The ITP cases that present with subdural hematoma are rarely seen (1).
Buccal mucosa bleeding time is the best assessment method for thrombocyte function and clot formation (Chohan et al., 2011; Fresno et al., 2005).
Witeska and Kosciuk (2003) reported dose and duration dependent deviations in thrombocyte counts in carp (Cyprinus carpio) exposed to Zn.
A study was conducted to determine the hematological values (total RBC, RBC indices, total WBC, differential WBC, and thrombocyte count) and the presence of C.
The combined strength that low temperature and EDTA generate when they attach to calcium ions releases glycoprotein lib epitope by affecting glycoprotein llb/llla molecule which is normally hidden and occupies thrombocyte area.
Future possible applications include the morphological analysis of other cell categories such as red blood cells and thrombocytes and digital analysis of other materials such as bone marrow samples.
The main mechanism of thrombocytopenia in our patient was possibly related to brucellosis-induced antibodies reacting with thrombocytes. Normal coagulation profile, normal fibrinogen level, and absence of schistocytes in the peripheral blood film were against DIC.
The increased leukocyte and thrombocyte counts and decreased hemoglobin values are other reliable markers of inflammation and degree of disease activity.
The parameters included total erythrocyte count (RBC), total leukocyte count (WBC), hemoglobin concentration, the hematocrit, mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), and thrombocyte count.
