A 'float' in the QBC tube reduces the volume of the lumen in the area of the buffy coat, causing the cells to be spread out over a greater distance. Cells types are differentiated by fluorescence in the presence of acridine orange. Advantages ® The QBC is an efficient and economical way to screen blood samples. ® Instrument is simple to operate and relatively fast, producing results in about 7 minutes making it especially valuable for pre-anesthetic, acute care and in-office screening procedures.

Ring forms (arrows) can be seen on the RBC surface in small groups (100x). ® Organisms must be differentiated from stain precipitate (Figure 4-20) and Cytauxzoon felis (Figure 4-32). ® Feline haemobartonellosis can occur as a primary disease or secondary to other immunosuppressive disorders such as FeLV infection, FIV infection, or FIP infection. ® Primary haemobartonellosis presents as a typical regenerative hemolytic anemia. Organisms appear intermittently in large numbers on peripheral erythrocytes.

However, erythropoietin does not stimulate white blood cell (WBC) production. Erythropoiesis and RBC numbers are also affected by hormones from the adrenal cortex, thyroid, ovary, testis, and anterior pituitary. Destruction Red cells have a finite circulating lifespan. In dogs, the average normal red cell circulates approximately 100 days. In cats, 85-90 days. Since in health circulating red cell numbers remain fairly constant, approximately 1% of the circulating red cells of the dog are replaced daily (slightly higher percentage in the cat).
