HLB test / Dried layer test
What a drop of blood can tell…
The HLB coagulation test is a qualitative assessment of the blood with a microscope. It complements the quantitative conventional medical blood count, which is a tabulation of blood components. The blood data obtained should be compared with parameters from the population mean and its enormous spans, since a comparison with the user’s ideal state, however, is only visually, not statistically possible. Until one stands out from this population average, may be well advanced a pathological condition.
The HLB coagulation test is simple to perform and has also certain advantages over other types of diagnostics. A drop of blood is taken from the fingertip and has dried before being assessed. The test is practical, quick to perform and easy to learn. All you need is a bright-field microscope with low resolution, which is to get inexpensive (about 180€ to 600€).
An important advantage of HLB coagulation test or Dried Layer test is to recognize metabolic disorders very early by the quality of blood coagulation long before normal laboratory parameters in blood are striking, i.e. of the liver. In contrast to a conventional medical laboratory diagnosis the HLB test allows a completely different insight into the blood. Because what the therapist can see in the microscope, is all about the quality of the blood and the degree of deterioration.
Photo 1 shows a drop of clotted blood at 10x magnification. The photo shows a consistent picture of erythrocytes clusters, which are connected by dark fibrin. From this image the normal variety of blood images can now be observed.
At a high oxidative stress the fibrin bright holes appears. These holes may vary in size, color and form and involve a number of denatured erythrocytes, Sialin acid structures, coagulation proteins, crystals and other substances that reveal the metabolic disturbances of the organism.
Photo 2 shows a dried drop of blood at 10x magnification with high oxidative stress. If such a condition lasts long, chronic diseases are the result.
Origin of the name of the HLB coagulation test
