EXCERPT:

Estimation of hemoglobin level is one of the most common laboratory tests. For economic reasons, Sahli?s acid hematin method, although least accurate among all methods, is still being used in many laboratories, particularly in developing countries. Keeping the cost almost the same, I have developed and standardized the acid hematin method into a colorimetric (photoelectric) method that is as accurate as the cyanmethhemoglobin method.
