CYTOLOGICAL ESTIMATION OF SEXUAL DIMORPHISM BY MICROSCOPIC EXAMINATION OF PERIPHERAL BLOOD IN SOME LABORATORY ANIMALS

MIRELA EMILIA CADAR

Abstract


We effected a cytological study on smears from peripheral blood collected from 5 females and 5 males of next species: white mouse, rat, guinea pig, rabbit and dog. The percentage estimation of neutrophils which presented typical sexual nuclear processes leads to conclusion that individual determination on this criterion is impossible in white mouse, tar and guinea pig, is uncertain in rabbit and is very certain in dog.

Keywords
