However, addition of less than 40% of the “correct” amount of blood for the EDTA tube also compromised the quality of the staining of the blood film (Robertson & Maxwell 1993).

Stabilize this slide with a digit (of the operator’s non-preferred hand) then hold a second (“spreader”) slide, between thumb and forefinger of the preferred hand, at about 45 degrees to the (horizontal) first slide.
