Fig. 1 The Depletion Mechanism. In the case of spherical beads, polymer molecules cannot enter the region between the closely spaced particles causing a net attractive force between the cells.
Rouleaux Techniques This article first appeared in the March 2009 issue of Workshop on the Web (www.workshopontheweb.com). It explains the construction method of Sue's wonderful rouleaux techniques so well that we thought you'd enjoy it and there is so much more in her book.

Laboratory Proficiency Testing Program Hematology Morphology - Photomicrograph Critique - March 2002 02-K35 Correct RBC Abnormality: Rouleaux # of Responses Received: 129 Correct # of Responses: 129 The RBC abnormality featured in this photomicrograph is rouleaux.
Thus, aggregation of two cells, or a cell and a rouleau or two rouleaux, would result in the loss of two faces and consequently in the loss of one discrete particle.
Markedly elevated serum total protein, hyponatremia, hypochloremia, Rouleaux formation (3+), and macrocytic anemia (increased MCV and decreased hemoglobin, hematocrit, and RBC count) with polychromasia and the presence of nucleated red blood cells (1 NRBC/100 WBCs) [ I1 ].
rouleaux formation, where the red cells stack up on each other like a roll of coins. The RBC agglutinates of rouleaux formation are very orderly (appearing as chains or stacks of red cells) whereas the red cell clumping
