Abstarc :

In 230 mice from 12 inbred strains (A.CA/W, AKR/W, BALB/cW, BN/aW, CBA/W, CBA-T6/W,
C3H/W, C57BL/6W, C57BL/10W, DBA2/W, 129S1/SvW, HLB219/J) the following parameters were
measured: the total number of white (WBC) and red (RBC) blood cells, haemoglobin concentration
(HGB), haematocrit (HCT), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular haemoglobin
(MCH), mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) and platelets (PLT) number. Highly
significant interstrain differences were shown within RBC, HGB, HCT, MCV and PLT.
