Mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC), red blood cell distribution width (RDW).
To evaluate cell size, shape, weight, and hemoglobin concentration. Used to diagnose and monitor therapy for diagnoses such as iron-deficiency anemia.
Whole blood (1 mL) collected in a lavender-top (EDTA) tube.
(Method: Automated, computerized, multichannel analyzers)
|Age||MCV(fL)||MCH (pg/cell)||MCHC (g/dL)||RDWCV||RDWSD|
|MCV = mean corpuscular volume; MCH = mean corpuscular hemoglobin; MCHC = mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration; RDWCV = coefficient of variation in red blood cell distribution width; RDWSD = standard deviation in RBC distribution width index.|
