Reticulocytes are precursors of red blood cells circulating in the blood for less than 48 hours. The reticulocyte count is a measure of bone marrow activity. The reticulocyte value is important in assessing erythropoiesis in anemia and controlling treatment with iron preparations. Abnormal values of reticulocytes occur in : chronic, increased formation of blood cells by the bone marrow, anemia (anemia) due to destruction of blood cells.

In the study, 7 reticulocyte parameters are determined: Ret.(%) relative and Ret (#) absolute number of reticulocytes,IRF-fraction of immature reticulocytes by proportion and degree of maturity, i.e.H-R% (reticulocytes with high RNA content), M-R% (reticulocytes with medium RNA content), L-R% (reticulocytes with low RNA content) and RET-He-equivalent of hemoglobin in the reticulocyte.
