Field evaluation of who hemoglobin color scale in West Java.
Southeast Asian J Trop Med Public Health. 1999; 30 Suppl 3:177-81.SA

Abstract

The results obtained with a WHO hemoglobin (Hb) colour scale were evaluated in a field study in Chibubur district in Java island by comparison with hemoglobin values obtained by an automated blood cell analyzer K-800 (Sysmex. Kobe, Japan). When the color scale test was performed following the instructions for use. Hb values observed were usually higher than the values obtained by the analyzer. Thirty microl blood was loaded on the filter paper and an 60 sec waiting period was used. The sensitivity of results obtained with the color scale was 23.3% (14/60), and specificity was 96.6% (58/60). We propose an additional testing method based on our results.
