Iron deficiency anaemia can be suspected by reduction in the following laboratory indicators: Haemoglobin [Hb], Haematocrit [PCV], RBC count, Mean Corpuscular Volume [MCV], Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin [MCH], Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin Concentration [MCHC] along with a raised Red cell Distribution Width [RDW].
(8) Low haemoglobin (Hb) levels result in a corresponding decrease in the oxygen carrying capacity of blood (7) and other parameters such as total red blood cell (RBC) count, packed cell volume (PCV), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH), and MCH concentration (MCHC).
Total red cell count (TRBC), Hematocrit (HCT), Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV), Mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH), Mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC and Haemoglobin (Hb) were measured on Sysmex KX 21 hematology analyzer.
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.
Blood samples collected from fish were used to determine the haematological parameters (total red blood cell count, haemoglobin concentration, haematocrit, mean corpuscular volume, mean corpuscular haemoglobin, mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration, total white blood cell count and differential leukocyte counts).
Haemoglobin (Hb), Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin Concentration (MCHC), Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin (MCH) and Mean Corpuscular volume (MCV) were calculated according to the formulae described by Dienye et al.
Allocation of subjects to BTM and control group: Patients with mean corpuscular volume (MCV) <80fL, mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH) <27ug and Haemoglobin A2 (HbA2) [greater than or equal to]3.5% were considered to have BTM.
Complete blood counts (total and differential) and estimation of hematological indices, including total haemoglobin (Hb), packed cell volume (PCV), mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) were performed using an automated cell counter (Beckman Counter, France).
A full blood count revealed anaemia (red blood cell count 4.62 x [10.sup.12]/L, haemoglobin 10.6 g/dL, haematocrit 0.324, mean corpuscular volume 70 fL, mean corpuscular haemoglobin 23 pg, mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration 32.8 g/dL), with a platelet count of 525 X [10.sup.9]/L and a white cell count of 10.5 x [10.sup.9]/L.

The mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) level was 31.450.53 g/dL, 28.091.05 and 31.420.93 in the three groups, respectively (pless than 0.001), but the value between Group 1 and Group 3 was not significant (p=0.992) (Table)
Table 3 shows hematocrit (HCT), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH), and mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) in the study and control groups.
