Abstract

Neutrophilia is frequently in hospitalized patients, so a screening test for infections would be very useful. The immature platelet fraction (IPF) is provided by the automated blood analyzer XE 2100 (Sysmex, Kobe, Japan) as a proportional value of the total optical platelet count [IPF%; an absolute count of immature platelets can also be obtained (AIPC)] to indicate the rate of platelet production. IPF could help to identify the aetiology of thrombocytopenia and to recognize the increased bone marrow activity as occurred during the course of infectious disease.
