There is a problem with the current estimateCellCounts() function which gives the following error when running:

> combinedRGset <- combine(rgSet, referenceRGset)
Error in combine(pDataX, pDataY) : data.frames contain conflicting data:
        non-conforming colname(s): Slide


I tried to debug it and it seems that the problem is in the read.450k function of minfi in the current version codes the Slide Column in the RGChannelSet as a list of characters, while the one present in the FlowSorted.Blood.450k object is a factor.  

I managed to get around this by using the getKereData.R script in the script folder of FlowSorted.Blood.450k where I generate a new reference dataset (I had to edit this code as well as otherwise it will give an error).  

Please take note to fix this in the next version.
