Hemoglobin was the compound in red blood cells that gave them their red color and served to convey oxygen to the body tissues.

Human hemoglobin was iron-based, while Vulcan hemoglobin was copper-based and green in color. (TOS: "The Man Trap", "Obsession"); (TAS: "The Pirates of Orion"); (ENT: "The Communicator")

In 2268, after Leonard McCoy had received treatment for his xenopolycythemia, Spock reported that the doctor's hemoglobin count was back to normal. (TOS: "For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky")

Terran leeches consumed hemoglobin. (TNG: "Phantasms")
