Frequency distribution curve of hemoglobin content in intact RBCs


The ADVIA hematology analyzer separates RBCs based on internal complexity, which scatters light according to the content or amount (pg) of hemoglobin within the RBCs. It then creates a histogram, consisting o cell numbers on the Y-axis and cellular hemoglobin content (CH) on the X-axis, ranging from 0-100 pg. The mean CH result is provided by the analyzer.
