|Abstract:||Accurate, economical methods for haemoglobin determination by laboratories in countries with limited resources are not available. This report provides the results of an international collaborative study evaluating the alkaline haematin detergent [AHD] method as a reference method for laboratory services with limited resources. The study included 6 laboratories; 3 in East Mediterranean countries, 1 in East Africa and 3 in Europe. The [AHD] method was evaluated against the HiCN method, with blood samples drawn from healthy and sick subjects. The results indicate that the AHD method is suitable for measuring haemoglobin in laboratories at all levels|
