Howard, as usual, put the issue in perspective.  I can only add that in 
over 10 years of performing TO reticulocyte analysis by 488 laser line 
and over 50,000 clinical samples with many an iron deficient anemia, 
clinical iron deficiency in individuals with Hb A, C, F, or C do not 
exhibit autofluorescence higher than iron replete individuals.  As for the 
Hb E state, I remain clueless.
