Some blood counts appear to be automated and computerised. https://www.quora.com/How-are-blood-test-results-shown-by-th...

"The equipment that performs the testing is automated and run by computers monitored by specially trained technologists. They review the results as the equipment generates the numbers for accuracy and quality of the data. There are many ways that the data generated is checked to make certain that the numbers reported are as accurate as possible"
