Three great scientific theories of the structure of the universe are the molecular, the corpuscular and the atomic.
The absolute count of red blood cell, hemoglobin, hematocrit, mean corpuscular volume, mean corpuscular hemoglobin, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration were presented as the mean and standard deviation.
At the end of the trial, immune response monitored in terms of hemoglobin (Hb), hematocrit (Ht), white blood cells (WBC), red blood cells (RBC), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH) and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC).
This study aims to assess erythrocyte osmotic fragility and parameters (erythrocyte count, haemoglobin content, hematocrit, mean corpuscular volume, mean corpuscular hemoglobin, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration, distribution frequency of erythrocytes) in wistar albino rats exposed to DMBA, different concentrations of fluoride and concomitant administration of these two chemicals.
All hematological Parameters were given with reference range Hemotological Parameters Value Reference range Hemoglobin (g/dL) 1,2 14-18 Hematocrit (%) 7,7 42-52 Red Blood Cells (u/L) 1,25 4-6,13 White Blood Cells (u/L) 7,23 4,3-10,3 Mean corpuscular volume (fL) 60 80-97 Mean corpuscular hemoglobin (pg) 9,3 25-33,3 Mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (g/dL) 15,8 30-35 Total iron binding capacity ([micro]g/dL) 499 241-421 Transferrin saturation (%) 0,1 18%-48% Transferrin (mg/dL) 249 180-344 Blood Iron ([micro]g/dL) 17 30-162 Haptoglobin (mg/dL) 193 62-197 Folat (pg/mL) 11 2,5-20 Vitamin B12 (nmol/L) 180 180-914
"Monica Young replies: Newton considered light to be "corpuscular. " In fact, he assumed light had mass, but this really didn't matter.
The blood sample of cases and controls were taken at the time of admission and was sent for assessment of hemoglobin (Hb), serum ferritin level, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) and mean corpuscular volume (MCV).
Samples were then placed into a 1mL EDTA K3 container (IDEXX Vetcollect) for a complete blood count (total erythrocyte count [red blood cells -RBC], packed cell volume (PCV), hemoglobin, leukocytes [White blood cells-WBC] and platelets) and RBC indexes: mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH) and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC).
The use of haemoglobin levels and other traditional red cell indices, such as mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) and red cell distribution width (RCDW), in screening for ID has also been recommended, because they are inexpensive and widely available.
Ademas, se determinaron los indices eritrociticos: volumen corpuscular medio (VCM), hemoglobina corpuscular media (HCM) y concentracion de hemoglobina corpuscular media (CHCM), donde el VCM es el volumen medio de globulos rojos y se calcula a partir del hematocrito y el numero de globulos rojos, se expresa en femtolitros o micrometros, su formula es VCM= Hematocrito (l/l)x1000/No Hematies(x1012/l); el HCM informa sobre el contenido medio de hemoglobina en cada eritrocito, valor que se expresa en picogramos y la formula para obtenerlo es HCM= Hb (g/dl)x10/No Hematies(x1012/l) y por ultimo, el CHCM es la concentracion media de la hemoglobina en un volmen determiando de eritrocitos concentrados, la cual se obtiene de CCMH= Hb (g/dl)x10/Hematocrito(l/l) (Henry y Benitez 2015).
About 5 ml of anti-coagulated blood was collected from positive cases and subjected for estimation of hematological parameters like packed cell volume (PCV%), hemoglobin concentration (HB g/dl), total erythrocytes count (RBCs X [10.sup.6]/[micro]l), total leukocyte count (WBCs X [10.sup.3]/[micro]l), mean corpuscular volume (MCV/fl), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH/pg) and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC g/dl).
