International Committee for Standardization in Haematology of the European Society of Haematology

Recommendations and requirements for haemoglobinometry in human blood


Scientific symposia on haemoglobinometry were held at the ninth congress of the European Society of Haematology at Lisbon in 1963 (see `Erythrocytometric methods and their standardization' Bibl. haemat., 1964, Fasc. 18) and at the tenth congress of the International Society of Haematology at Stockholm in 1964 (`Standardization, documentation and normal values in haematology', Bibl. haemat., 1965, fasc. 21).

A technical committee on haemoglobinometry met in Stockholm on 2 September 1964 to discuss problems associated with the production of a standard solution. On the basis of this discussion and the conclusions reached at the symposia the following recommendations have been made by the International Committee for Standardization in Haematology (I.C.S.H.).
