Reference Intervals for Reticulocyte Hemoglobin Content, Mean Reticulocyte Volume and Reticulocyte Count Percentage in Healthy Han Ethnic Adults of Chengdu by Sheng-Hang Zhen, Yan Wang, Fei-Fei Luo, Zhi-Yao Cao, Li-Juan Yang, Chang-Guo Gu

Background: The goals of this study are to determine the RIs of RHE, MRV, and reticulocyte count percentage (RET) in healthy Han ethnic adults of Chengdu.
Methods: A total of 691 Han adults without iron deficiency, aged 20 to 90 years were included in the study. The RIs were defined as mean ± 1.96 SD.
Results: After statistical analysis the RIs were 29.95 - 35.12 pg (RHE), 99.76 - 115.97 fL (MRV) in males and 29.77 - 34.52 pg (RHE), 98.72 - 113.83 fL (MRV) in females. RET reference interval was 0.485 - 1.504%.
Conclusions: In our study, we established RHE, MRV, and RET RIs of the Han ethnic population in Chengdu for the first time.
