In this communication, a PC-based imaging system was developed for automatically identifying fluroscence-labeled individual platelets adherent to protein-coated surface under flow conditions. It is to eliminate the laborious and time-consuming task, and the subjective error of manual measurements. Based upon the features of adherent platelets, three passes of the image processing were developed for platelet identification. From the results, 90-95% accuracy could be routinely obtained. The platelet distribution and other related parameters could be easily extracted and investigated.
