Disodium EDTA used as anticoagulant for common carp blood caused a signifi cant increase and high variability in hematocrit readings comparing to the heparinized samples. Na2EDTA induced erythrocyte swelling, causing cell membrane disruption (hemolysis). Th e nuclei released from destroyed cells changed shape from oval to round, and underwent gradual swelling and vacuolation, followed by karyolysis. Th e degree of observed changes was similar at all Na2EDTA concentrations (0.1, 0.5, and 1.0 mg… CONTINUE READING
