The hemoglobin standards produced from hemolyzed blood with 1% hemolyzed blood to the left of the image and 100% hemolyzed blood on the right. [Image courtesy of the University of Bristol.]
Mean corrected hematocrit values of blood following exposure to permeable and nonpermeable solutions (n = 64). Values are means ± SE.
Dilutions calculations for saline solutions
Values underlined are calculated by the students in advance of the class.
Hemoglobin concentration in each standard solution
Values underlined are calculated by the students in advance of the class. [Hb], hemoglobin concentration.
