Part Description

LP17695-5   Erythrocyte mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration
The mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration, or MCHC, is a measure of the concentration of hemoglobin in a given volume of packed red blood cell. It is reported as part of a standard complete blood count.

It is calculated by dividing the hemoglobin by the hematocrit. Reference ranges for blood tests are 32 to 36 g/dl, or between 19-20 to 22 mmol/L.
