Mean cell hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) was calculated using the following equation:
3) For example, an increase in hemoglobin from a hemolyzed specimen will affect the mean cell hemoglobin and mean cell hemoglobin concentration
in automated systems.
Data are means +- SD, Hb= Hemoglobin, PCV= Packed Cell Volume, MCV= Mean Cell Volume, MCH= Mean Cell Hemoglobin, MCHC= Mean Cell Hemoglobin Concentration
, RDW= Red Cell Distribution Width, Fe= Serum iron, TIBC= Total Iron Binding Capacity, % Sat= % Saturation of Transferrin, Fer= Ferritin, N= Normal, M= Male, F= Female, IDA= Iron Deficiency Anemia, Thal= ss Thalassemia Minor.
Other useful tests for anemia evaluation included in the CBC are erythrocyte count, mean cell volume (MCV), mean cell hemoglobin (MCH), mean cell hemoglobin concentration
(MCHC), reticulocyte count (RET), red cell distribution width (RDW), and a microscopic examination of erythrocytes on a Wright stained blood smear.
