We present a proposed method to obtain three hematology parameters: red blood cell count, mean red blood cell volume and red blood cell distribution width on a microfabricated microchannel device. Detection will be conducted with an impedance device, in a series of three or more filter beds with channel dimensions on the order of 2–7 μm wide × 5 μm high × 5–15 μm long, and a total device volume on the order of 1 μl.
