A few things to consider: RBC results and MCV may be falsely elevated due to the WBCs being counted simultaneously with RBCs and platelets; a spun hematocrit is approximately 2% to 5% higher than a calculated hematocrit; Hemoglobin may be falsely elevated due to turbidity; MCH and MCHC values may be inaccurate due to the affected parameters from which they're calculated; falsely elevated WBC values may be seen in samples with cryofibrinogen, cryoglobulins, nucleated red blood cells, micromegakaryocytes, or any particle sized in the range that is counting WBCs.
