Reticulocyte counting was assessed on the coulter STKS-2B automated blood cell counter. The re-sults were compared with Miller's method which was recommended by International Committee for standardiza-tion in Haematology (ICSH). The correlation coefficient between Miller's method and automated blood cell counter was r=0. 94 (P0. 05). CV was 8. 33% for intra-run, CV was 11. 31% for inter-run. The results indicated that reticulocyte counting method by using automated blood cell counter has a good accuracy and preci-sion and rapid accessing. It can be applied rapid accessing of batch sample. It is convenient to manipulate and the sample using is less and reduce men-made error. It is an idealistic method to count reticulocyte.
