The vacutainers were immediately put on ice cubes before taken to the laboratory. The parameters determined included White Blood Cells (WBC), Lymphocytes (LYM), Monocytes (MON), Granucytes (GRA), Red Blood Cells (RBC), Haemoglobin (Hb), Haematocrit (Ht), Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV), Mean Corpuscular Volume Haemoglobin (MCH), Mean Corpuscular Volume Haemoglobin Concentration (MCHC), Red Blood Cell Distribution Width (RBCDW), Platelets (PLT), Mean Platelets Volume (MPV), Platecrit (PCT) and Platelets Distribution Width (PDW). In the laboratory, the blood was mixed on a roller mixer and analysed on an ABX Micros 60 Cs. A similar procedure was conducted for plasma chemistry although the blood was put in BD vacutainers and was not put on ice.
Scientific journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting novel research. There are thousands of scientific journals in publication, and many more have been published at various points in the past. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Scientific journals contain articles that are peer reviewed, to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity.The publication of the results of research is an essential part of the scientific method. If they are describing experiments or calculations, they must supply enough details that an independent researcher could repeat the experiment or calculation to verify the results. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
