The minister states that there are infrastructure issues that need to be addressed as we are only a year away from the deadline for meeting of millennium development goals on mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH) parameters.
No significant differences were observed in any of the hematological parameters tested (red blood cell count (RBC), haemoglobin concentration (Hgb), haematocrit (Ht), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC), total white blood cell count (WBC), or white blood cell differential count) in all of the treated rats compared to control rats (Table 1).
The haemoglobin concentration (Hb) was estimated using the cyanomethaemoglobin method by adding 20 [micro]l of the blood to 4ml of a diluting fluid (Drabkin's solution) and the colour density read off a colorimeter, while the mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC), the mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH) were calculated as illustrated by Lamb [9].
Red blood cells (RBC), haemoglobin (Hgb), hematocrit (Hct), mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC), mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), and total white blood cells (WBC) were determined using a blood counter (Coulter STKS model, Coulter electronics, Ltd, Luton, UK) with adapted dilutions.
Swelling implies that fluid is being drawn into red blood cells causing the mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration to decrease.
Mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration, expresses the concentration of haemoglobin in unit volume of erythrocyte.
However, the mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH) levels were slightly higher in SS patients whereas ZPP/H ratio was higher in AS cases.
d) Mean corpuscular volume (MCV) <70 fL (age 12-23 months) or <73 fL (age 24-38 months), mean corpuscular haemoglobin <22 pg.
Anaemia was classified as microcytic if Hb<120g/Land Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV)<80fl; hypochromic if Hb<120g/Land Mean Corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH)<27pg [7].
Mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) values reported for Oreochromis niloticus, Heterobranchus bidorsalis and other African fishes were comparable to those of C.
The mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH) and the mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) were calculated as described by Sastry [19].
