What is the principle of RBC count?
In respect to this, what is the dilution factor for RBC count?
Also, what is the principle of cell counter? The Coulter Principle The Coulter method of sizing and counting particles is based on measurable changes in electrical impedance produced by nonconductive particles suspended in an electrolyte. A small opening (aperture) between electrodes is the sensing zone through which suspended particles pass.
Also to know is, what causes your red blood cells to be low?
Some causes of a low RBC count (anemia) include: Trauma that leads to loss of blood. Kidney failure—severe and chronic kidney diseases lead to decreased production of erythropoietin, a hormone produced by the kidneys that promotes RBC production by the bone marrow.
What are the uses of RBC pipette?
An RBC pipet is a calibrated pipet used to draw a very small sample of blood from a finger prick, dilute it with a specialized fluid, then apply a droplet of it to a special calibrated microscope slide (hemocytometer) so one could count the RBCs while looking through the microscope.
