Hemoglobin in reticulocytes

Rtc(B)- MCH

Rtc(B)- MCH (hemoglobin in reticulocytes) is a medical test that measures the level of reticulocytes in the blood and is carried out when diagnosing iron deficiency or increased need for iron.

What is hemoglobin in reticulocytes?

Rtc(B)- MCH (hemoglobin in reticulocytes) is a medical test that measures the level of reticulocytes in the blood. Reticulocytes are immature red blood cells that have recently been released from the bone marrow. Their presence and number can be a useful diagnostic tool to evaluate bone marrow function and to assess whether the body has the ability to produce enough red blood cells.

Why are reticulocytes analyzed?

The analysis is carried out with the aim of identifying the average content of hemoglobin in reticulocytes and diagnosing iron deficiency or increased need for iron. Ret(B)-MCH signals decreasing iron deficiency. The analysis can only be carried out together with B-Reticulocytes.
