R.B.C DILUTING FLUID
R.B.C Diluting Fluid Use:
Diluting Fluid for R.B.C.
RBC diluting fluid is isotonic with blood; hence hemolysis does not take place. Normal Saline also can be used. But it causes slight creation of red blood cells and allows rouleaux formation. The blood specimen is diluted 1:200 with the RBC diluting fluid and cells are counted under high power (40 x objective) by using a counting chamber. The number of cells in undiluted blood are calculated and reported as the number of Red cells per cu mm (MI) of whole blood.
