A study for reducing effect of hematocrit on measurement of an analyte in whole blood
In this paper the presence an analyte in a sample of whole blood comprises the step of treating the sample with a nonlytic hypertonic salt composition to reduce the hematocrit by reducing the size of the red blood cells. In optical detection systems, the smaller red blood cells create greater scatter, which allows a more accurate correction to be applied in a dual-wavelength detection system.
