  1. Peripheral blood samples from the RP (a) and FV (b) methods were measured using a fully automatic hematology analyzer. Data are shown as means ± s.d. P values were calculated by the two-tailed unpaired Student’s t-test, with blood collection method in all groups (n = 6/blood collection method). *P < 0.05 and **P < 0.01
