Primate Hematology

Overview of primate hematology
- actual values and source references

Below are links to a spreadsheet containing most of the data in the published literature on primate hematology, i.e., total white blood cell (WBC) counts pluss absolute and relative differential WBC counts. Each study listed in the spreadsheet contains a reference to the source. These references are listed in the reference file below.

Thus, to take full advantage of the summary, you need to pick one of the spreadsheet formats you think you can read, plus you need a copy of the reference file in a format you can read.

Please, I take no responsibility for any errors contained in these spreadsheets or reference files. If you want to use the data in a study, always verify my data with the references source. Email me if you have any questions. Also, I'd love to hear if you use these data in a study.
