I just saw the Blood Hound at the AACC. It does digital images of all the WBC's, RBC's and Plts on a CBC. Per the manufacturer, it is capabel of detecting and counting RBC inclusions, including malaria, in RBC's. It looked impressive and is pending FDA approval. Check out their website.

We use a combination of CBC results, Plt count, ICT and DxH NRBC information to prioritise the review of malaria (Giemsa) blood film reviews (Morphologists not available 24/7). 

The DxH 800 NRBC plot can demonstrate the presence of malaria parasites, with a number of  publications available.  We have had limited experience (Have very few cases a year), but have found this additional tool useful.
