Course Topics:
  • Manual and automated cell counts
  • RBC indices calculations and RBC morphology
  • WBC differential cell count
  • Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR), Reticulocyte Count
  • Manual Platelet Counts
  • Semi-automated Prothrombin and Partial Thromboplastin times

Textbook information can be found on the Book Inn website
Required Materials:
  • In order to participate in lab, students must be wearing floor-length pants, closed-toe, closed heel shoes. Pants may not have rips, tears, etc. Students must also wear a liquid impervious lab coat, gloves and a face shield (available in SCC bookstore) whenever handling clinical specimens. Additional classroom/lab materials and guidelines will be on the course syllabus addendum distributed by the instructor.

A = 90 - 100
B = 80 - 89
C = 70 - 79
D = 60 - 69
F =   0 - 59

Student Learning Outcomes:
  1. Perform and interpret all processes and procedures studied involving hemoglobin and hematocrit, erythrocyte, and indices determinations.
  2. Perform and interpret all processes and procedures studies involving leukocyte counts, platelet counts and eosinophil counts.
  3. Describe all processes and procedures studies involving automation in the hematology laboratory.
  4. Perform all processes and procedures studied involving differential white blood cell counts.
  5. Analyze erythrocyte sedimentation rates (ESR) and reticulocyte counts.
  6. Evaluate the role of platelets, clotting factors, and blood vessels in Hemostasis.
  7. Evaluate the role of clotting factors in hemostasis.
