General blood tests include the counting and morphological examination of red and white blood cells and platelets, as well as the examination of haemoglobin, haematocrit, and erythrocyte markers. Blood tests provide a wealth of information regarding the functions of the human body, such as the transport of oxygen to various tissues and the functioning of the immune system. Oxygen is transported by the haemoglobin of red blood cells; therefore, it is important for the quantity of haemoglobin to be measured quickly and reliably. The same procedure should be followed for the measurement of white blood cells and their subcategories, as they are the main components of our body’s defence.
The examination of haemoglobinopathies is carried out by haemoglobin electrophoresis, with which not only A1, A2, F, and S chains can be detected, but also more rare ones such D, C, H, O, J, Lepore, etc. Finally, blood type and the Rhesus factor are also identified.
