OER Description:

Neonatal blood is interesting and is visually different to adult blood. These resources would provide a useful case study for classroom discussions to highlight some of the morphological and biochemical differences. Neonatal blood contains different haemoglobin molecules, and a series of biochemical tests (iso-electic focusing and HPLC) are carried out to get a full and accurate profile of the blood.
