A justification for high resolution hematocrit measurement.

Abstract:

:The purpose of this study was to determine the feasibility of using a 6" digital caliper and a 20x viewing microscope to measure hematocrit (HCT) from microhematocrit tubes. The reliability and validity of the digital caliper technique (DC) was simultaneously compared with that of the conventional "turntable" style microhematocrit method (MC) and the Coulter Counter hematocrit (CC) for a comprehensive comparison of the three methods. The reliability of the three methods was assessed by computing the standard error of the measurement (SEm) on triplicate readings of human blood samples. The SEm for MC, CC, and DC methods were 0.3555, 0.3004, and 0.1491, respectively. Validity was assessed by comparing the average of the triplicate HCT readings for each method with HCT determined by densitometry. Average HCT values (+/- SE) for the MC, CC, DC, and densitometry methods were 42.3 +/- 3.2, 42.4 +/- 3.4, 43.1 +/- 3.4, 43.7 +/- 3.3, respectively. Only the DC HCT values were not different from the densitometry HCT (P > 0.05). The MC and CC values were significantly lower (P < 0.01). It is concluded that accurate, highly precise measurements of HCT are obtainable using the digital caliper. The significance for this is the increased ability to perform extremely accurate measurement of changes in plasma volume. With this information, research labs can reliably measure smaller changes in plasma than was previously possible with commercial procedures.
