Daily running of known control blood samples to validate accuracy of the Coulter counter and haemoglobinometer
machine before running test samples was done.
Hemoglobin (Hb) was estimated by Sahlis method using a haemoglobinometer
. Data was analyzed using SPSS 11.0.
For the method comparison study, a prospective, side-by-side comparative study of the HemoCue haemoglobinometer
against the Advia 120 automated haematology analyser (Bayer Diagnostics, Tarrytown, NY) was performed.
Hematological studies: The blood samples were analyzed for hemoglobin (Hb) by acid hematin (Sahli's haemoglobinometer
) method, Packed Cell Volume (PCV) by microhematocrit, and Total Erythrocyte Count (TEC) and Total Leukocyte Count (TLC) by Neubauer's haemocytometer.
was used for haemoglobin estimation.
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.
Study material use are weighing scales, measuring tape, torch, Snellen's eye chart, stethoscope, sphygmomanometer, Sahli's haemoglobinometer
. Every child was examined physically from head to toe and deviations from normal were recorded.

in the clinic.
Haemoglobin values were measured using a Hemocue Hb 201+ haemoglobinometer
. Women with anaemia were referred to an antenatal clinic for further investigation and treatment.
Haemoglobin was estimated by Sahli's haemoglobinometer
. WHO's criterion for anaemia in adults is an Hb value of less than 12.5g/dl.
