Reticulocyte hemoglobin content (CHr) and percentage of hypochromic cells (%Hypo) are restricted to the Siemens analysers. The aims of the study were to investigate the correlation of Red cells size factor (RSf) and low Hemoglobin density (LHD%), reported by Beckman-Coulter analysers, with CHr and %Hypo in the assessment of iron status in the presence of(More)
Iron status is the result of the balance between the rate of erythropoiesis and the amount of the iron stores. Direct consequence of an imbalance between the erythroid marrow iron requirements and the actual supply is a reduction of red cell hemoglobin content, which causes hypochromic mature red cells and reticulocytes. The diagnosis of iron deficiency is(More)
