XE-5000 which we developed has not only the same function of XE-2100 but also software to measure immature cells and body fluid mode. We can measure cerebrospinal fluid ( CSF ), pleural fluid, ascites and synovial fluid samples by XE-5000. We evaluated basic performance of XE-5000, reproducibility, linearity, carryover, correlation between XE-5000 and manual method, and the stability of samples at room temperature and 4｡C.
