Research Facts
(a) Haemacytometers are used in Haematology to count white and red blood cells in a certain volume of blood; the pipette with the red bead is used to make a 1:100 dilution of blood with saline; the pipette with the white bead is used to make a 1:10 dilution of blood with saline for counting white blood cells; the 1:100 dilution is used to count red blood cells; once the blood has been diluted, a drop or two is placed on the haemacytometer and covered with a special glass slide; this protects the lens of the microscope from accidental contact with the blood; the haemacytometer contains two counting areas which are grids etched onto the glass; these are visible to the naked eye, but the cells are counted using a microscope;
the number of red blood cells in a volume of blood is determined by counting the cells in one chamber, and then with a mathematical formula, calculating the total number of red cells per volume; a below-normal value may indicate the presence of anemia; white blood cell numbers are counted in both chambers because of their lower numbers relative to red blood cells; a mathematical formula is used to calculate the number of white cells per volume;
elevated white counts may indicate the presence of infection, an allergic reaction, leukemia, or other diseases; a decreased white blood count is often indicative of bone marrow failure which occurs in later stage leukemia;
the use of the haemacytometer has now largely been replaced by automated methods, although it can still be found in use in areas where automation is not available;
haemacytometers can also be used to count the numbers of sperm in seminal fluid for fertility testing; (b) this smaller tube was used for a 1 in 10 dilution; (c) this tube was used for a 1 in 100 dilution.
