Figure 7: Histograms obtained from the microscopic views as shown in Figure 6, redrawn from Sugawara et al. [32]. On the basis of the number of Heinz bodies contained in each of 100 red cells per view, samples treated at (a) 45°C, (b) 42°C, (c) 40°C and (d) 37°C are displayed with a temperature-untreated sample as a reference (e). The results demonstrate that hemichrome emergence and subsequent formation of Heinz bodies within the erythrocytes increased with increasing temperature treated of blood samples over 37°C.
