hemoglobinometry

 [he″mo-glo-bĭ-nom´ĕ-tre]
measurement of the hemoglobin content of the blood, usually with a hemoglobinometer after the hemoglobin has been converted to cyanmethemoglobin.

The hemoglobin concentration was determined using a colorimetric kit (Randox), based on the cyanmethemoglobin method.
Hemoglobin (Hb) was detected by cyanmethemoglobin method, Packed Cell Volume (PCV) by microhematocrit (Apel, HC 702, Japan), and Total Erythrocyte Count (TEC) and Total Leukocyte Count (TLC) by Neubauer's haemocytometer.
Plasma samples were sent to the laboratory and analyzed for complete blood count (erythrocytes, hemoglobin, and hematocrit); mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC), by the cyanmethemoglobin colorimetric technique; mean corpuscular volume (MCV), by the micro-hematocrit method; and leukogram (leukocytes, segmented neutrophils, red blood cells, lymphocytes, and neutrophils), by the MayGrunwald Giemsa method.
Hemoglobin was estimated by cyanmethemoglobin method by commercially available Drabkin's reagent solution (Sigma-Aldrich Co USA.), ferritin by radioimmunoassay kit (Beckman Coulter USA).
Measurement of haematological parameters: Haemoglobin in blood was measured by the standardised cyanmethemoglobin method.
In the complete blood count, the erythrocyte count (RBC) was determined in a Neubauer chamber, while the hematocrit (Ht) was determined through the microhematocrit method and the hemoglobin concentration (Hb) through the cyanmethemoglobin method.
Red and white blood cell count was determined with chamber method using Neubauer's haemocytometer; haemoglobin concentration with cyanmethemoglobin method [13] and haematocrit in capillary tubes of 75 [micro]L volume, which were centrifuged in a microhematocrit centrifuge and the haematocrit values were read with a reader.
Hemoglobin (Hb) was measured using cyanmethemoglobin method (Jain, 1986).
The haematology analytes were assayed on the ADVIA[R] 2120i System with Autoslide using wet chemistry, flow cytometry, and peroxidase staining methodologies, with the exception of the haemoglobin assay that uses a standard cyanmethemoglobin colorimetric method [34].
