The preferred method to verify the accuracy of a haemoglobinometer is the International Committee for Standardization in Haematology (ICSH) reference measurement of haemoglobin as haemiglobincyanide in whole blood, using a spectrophotometer which has been calibrated directly by the WHO/ICSH primary international reference standard or by means of a commercial standard that has been manufactured in accordance with the ICSH specifications and has been shown to be directly traceable to the primary standard.
