Conversion of Alternative Absolute Lymphocyte Count Units
This Lymphocyte Depletion Kinetics tool assumes entered values are measured using the International System (SI) of Units: i.e., absolute lymphocyte count value measured in units of 109 cells/liter
Users of the Lymphocyte Depletion Kinetics Tool must ensure that lab results are converted and entered into the tool using the proper (SI) units - entering data measured in other than SI units will yield invalid results.
Peripheral blood lymphocyte count results may be reported by some laboratories using other units.
The table below shows the equivalence between values/measurements provided by different commercially available hematology analyzers.
Absolute Lymphocyte Count Unit Conversion Table
Example of absolute lymphocyte count value
Conversion among rows*
SI units: (required by this tool)
103 cells/microliter or 103 cells/μL
K/mm3 or K/μL
* Example: 2.5 x 109/L = 2.5 x K/mm3 (or K/μL) = 2.5 x 103/μL
