Abstract

At present hematology practicals in India are performed by medical, dental and paramedical students. Mouth pipetting is done in hematology practicals and primary health centres and small hospitals to do hemoglobin determination, total red blood cell count (total RBC count), total white blood cell count (total WBC count) and platelet count. The physiology practical manuals describe the use of Haemoglobin pipette, WBC pipette and RBC pipette.[1-4] The pipette for haemoglobin determination has a rubber tubing and mouth piece to help in collecting required amount of blood.
