ABSTRACT Hematocrit, hemoglobin concentration, and mean cell hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) were determined in the mangrove killifish, Kryptolebias marmoratus, a tropical fish that can undergo emersion for > 1 month when they leave the waters of mangrove forests and find refuge in moist, terrestrial habitats.

Red blood cells (RBCs) demonstrated an increased mean cell hemoglobin concentration which is consistent with the presence of spherocytes and polychromasia.
3) For example, an increase in hemoglobin from a hemolyzed specimen will affect the mean cell hemoglobin and mean cell hemoglobin concentration in automated systems.
The mean cell volume (MCV) and mean cell hemoglobin (MCH) are increased, with a mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) within the reference range.
They are caused by partial (type-2; -[alpha]) or total (type-1; --) [alpha]-gene deletion, which gives rise to various degrees of impaired (-[alpha]/[alpha][alpha], --/[alpha][alpha], --/-[alpha]) or even completely absent (--/--) hemoglobin a-chain synthesis as well as abnormally low hemocytometric indices [mean cell volume (MCV), mean cell hemoglobin (MCH), mean cell hemoglobin concentration (MCHC), Hb] (3-5).
7 Another study showed that although HGB levels were slightly lower in hospitalized adults (mean age 70) than in younger healthy controls (mean age 36), other RBC measures including hematocrit (HCT), mean cell hemoglobin (MCH), and red cell distribution width (RDW) were equivalent.
