The counting of blood cells using a hemacytometer.

2. A device used in manual blood counts, consisting of a microscopic slide with a depression whose base is marked in grids, and into which a measured volume of a sample of blood or bacterial culture is placed and covered with a cover glass.
The number of cells and formed blood elements in the squares is counted under a microscope and used as a representative sample for calculating the unit volume; also called, counting cell, counting chamber, and hemocytometer.
1. The fragmentation or disintegration of blood cells by means of mechanical trauma.
2. Disintegration of the blood corpuscles by means of pressure.
A tumor composed of histiocytes.
Any of several disorders in which there is a proliferation of histocytes without any known underlying cause; such as, infection, or a disorder of lipid metabolism.
