Each laboratory has its own method for preparing reticulocytes to be counted. The methods are described in every textbook of laboratory methods and will not be described here. If a permanent record is desired, the reticulocytes may be counterstained with Wright's stain. Shown here is a reticulocyte preparation made from the blood of a patient with sickle cell anemia, counterstained with Wright's stain.
