Blood cell counting by laboratory task utilizes haemocytometer and microscope. It is laborious. This shows the effectiveness of an automatic image processing method to detect blood cells by peripheral blood smear microscope image. The traditional method of manual count under the microscope yields inaccurate results and put an intolerable amount of stress on the Medical Laboratory Technicians. Although hardware solutions such as the Automated Haematology Counter, are not capable of deploying such prohibitively expensive machines in every hospital laboratory in the country. As a solution to this problem, this Paper aims to provide a software-based cost effective and an efficient alternative in recognizing and analysing blood cells.
