Abstract [en]

Background: Although flow cytometry is often brought forward as a preferable method in the setting of thrombocytopenia, the relative effects of low sample counts on results from flow cytometry-based platelet function testing (FC-PFT) in comparison with light transmission aggregometry (LTA) and multiple electrode aggregometry (MEA) has not been reported. Objectives: To compare the effects of different sample platelet counts (10, 50, 100, and 200x10(9)L(-1)) on platelet activation measured with FC-PFT, LTA, and MEA using the same anticoagulant and agonist concentrations as for the commercial MEA test. Methods: Platelets were stimulated with two commonly used platelet agonists (ADP [6.5 mu molL(-1)] and PAR1-AP [TRAP, 32 mu molL(-1)]). The specified sample platelet counts were obtained by combining platelet-rich and platelet poor hirudinized plasma in different proportions with or without red blood cells. Results: For FC, P-selectin exposure and PAC-1 binding was reduced at 10x10(9)L(-1) after stimulation with PAR1-AP (by approximately 20% and 50%, respectively), but remained relatively unchanged when ADP was used as agonist (n=9). The platelet count-dependent effects observed with PAR1-AP were eliminated when samples were pre-incubated with apyrase, implying that reduced purinergic signaling was the main underlying factor (n=5). Both aggregometry-based PFTs showed a 50% reduction at 50x10(9)L(-1) and more than 80% reduction at 10x10(9)L(-1), irrespective of agonist used (n=7). Conclusions: Although FC-PFT is generally preferable to aggregometry-based PFTs in situations with low sample platelet counts, a careful optimization of experimental parameters is still required in order to eliminate platelet count-related effects.
