The best things comes in ... tens !

On behalf of the request of our business partner in South Africa, Hans-Jürgen Grob, the Coghill Research Laboratories in Gwent (England) did analyze in the year 2001 the hameogram of a sixty year old healthy man. In order to determine, wheater the radiation of a mobilephone impairs the human organism or not, ten series of tests have been carried out. In all these tests the lymphocytes have been examined.

After the exposure period the samples were coded and given to a colleague for staining with trypan blue dye to establish which were viable and blind counting under a light microscope (Olympus BX50) using a hemoctyometer (Sigma Brightline). Viable and non-viable cells in each sample was counted in ten hemocytometer squares according to recommended laboratory practise.

Lymphocytes are of fundamental importance in the immune system. In human adults lymphocytes make up roughly 35 percent of the total number of white blood cells. Lymphocytosis typically is associated with infections, such as mononucleosis or whooping cough, certain cancers of the blood or lymphatic system such as multiple myeloma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and autoimmune disorders that cause chronic inflammation, such as inflammatory bowel disease.
