Background: There should be correlation between the methods. That means the value of platelet count that is obtained should be more or less same using different methods. The studies related to this are very essential to support the new methods. Objective: The present study was undertaken to observe the platelet count correlation using automated vs manual on smear. Methods: The present study involved 100 patients both males and females with age more than 30 years. The selection was done from the outpatient department. Willing participants were included in the study. Those with severe complications were excluded from the study. A thorough clinical evaluation was conducted on all the patients. Voluntary informed consent was obtained from all the patients before the study. Results: The results were presented in table 1 to table 3. Table 1 presents the age wise distribution of cases. Majority of patients belongs to age group 0f 41-50 years. Table 2 presents the platelet Count assessed by analyzer. Majority of patients count is between 70000-90000 using auto analyzers. Table 3 presents the platelet Count assessed by manual method. Majority of patients count is between 70000-90000 using the manual method. There is correlation between the both the methods. Conclusion: The study results support that there is correlation between the manual and automated methods. Though there is correlation, the study recommends further detailed studies with higher sample size. Also multi centre studies should be planned in this area.
