Design and Development of a Method to Manipulate Mean Corpuscular Volume of the Red Blood Cells

Athira P R [4] | Ramjeela S [5]

Abstract: Alsever's solution is a balanced salt solution, is used for preservation of blood. Blood collected from blood bank is treated with low, normal and high alsevers solution to get low, normal and high controls. To this prepare 3.5?1012/L,4.5?1012/L and 5.5?1012/L concentration in 1 ml in EDTA tubes. Then take the values of RBC count and MCV of blood on automated hematology analyser. Alsevers solution can store the blood up to 2 weeks. It is routinely used as an anticoagulant/blood preservative, which permits the storage of whole blood at refrigerator temperatures for approximately 10 weeks. Alsevers solution can give the expected range value for RBC count, MCV, MCH and MCHC.
