Haematology is the study of disorders of the blood, both malignant and non-malignant. The diagnosis of blood disease relies on morphology of blood and marrow, along with specialized assays which include coagulation, red cell enzymes, flow cytometry, cytogenetics, and other molecular assays. This chapter covers most of the diseases commonly encountered clinically and provides details relating to these specialized assays used in the modern haematology laboratory.
