Shown here is an example of a bone marrow preparation in which the cells are well-stained and separated. However, it is a poor area for a differential count. The cells are broken and cannot be identified. If a cell has no cytoplasm it cannot be counted and if many are omitted the distribution is distorted. I cannot stress enough the importance of finding a good area. Be satisfied with only the best.
