Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin (Mean Cell Hemoglobin, MCH)

The mean corpuscular hemoglobin helps determine the average concentration of hemoglobin in a red blood cell. It is expressed in picograms (pg). The MCH is calculated by dividing the total mass of hemoglobin by the number of red blood cells in a volume of blood.

Based on MCH values, anemia can be normochromic, hyperchromic and hypochromic.
