Platelet parameters are often reported with the erythrogram. 1. (a) Hemocytometer. (b) Refractometer. (c) Microhematocrit tube sealant. (d) Unopette system diluent reservoir and pipette. (e) Microscope slides. (f) Microhematocrit tubes. (g) Unopette WBC counting system. 1). The Erythrogram The three erythrocyte parameters in the erythrogram that are directly measured by most in-clinic hematology instruments are hemoglobin, red cell count, and red cell volume. The remaining red cell parameters—MCHC, Hct, and MCH—are calculated from the measured values.

These cells are replaced by new red cells to maintain the normal red cell count in the peripheral blood. Erythrocyte maturation takes approximately 3–5 days. As a result, if an animal has an episode of significant blood loss, it may take up to 7 days to see any evidence of regeneration in the peripheral blood sample. The erythrocytes only function is to carry oxygen from the lung to the tissues and CO2 from the tissues to the lung. The shape of the cell, hemoglobin, cytoplasmic enzymes, and membrane-associated electrolyte pumps all contribute to moving oxygen from the alveoli of the lung to the tissues.

As a result, both the number and size of the cells are measured. (b) In the laser counter, cells flow through a channel in single file and pass through a single beam of focused light. The light is scattered to a different degree by the different types of cells. Chapter 2: Components of the CBC measurement of the MCV will affect the Hct and MCHC. The platelet count is usually reported with the erythrogram. Platelets are directly counted in most instruments. They are counted in the same cycle as the erythrocytes.
