We evaluated performance of the ABX PENTRA 80 (ABX Diagnostics, Montpellier France) hematology analyzer in enumerating the most frequent subsets of WBCs in peripheral blood, atypical lymphocytes (ALYs), and large immature cells (LICs) by comparing results with those obtained by manual microscopic counts, another hematology analyzer, and flow cytometric immunophenotyping.
