A full blood count can be used to check your overall health and may help detect a wide range of issues such as infection, anaemia and leukaemia.
Basophils are one of the several kinds of white blood cells you have in your body. Basophils are a part of your immune system and are created inside of your bone marrow.
This is a laboratory calculation based on the number of Basolphils.
Eosinophils are a kind of white blood cell that helps fight disease. Eosinophils do two important things in your immune system: curb infections and boost inflammation, which can help you fight off a disease.
This is a laboratory calculation based on the number of Eosinophils.
This test tells how much of your blood is made up of red blood cells. A low score may be a sign that you don’t have enough iron, the mineral that helps your body make red blood cells. A high score could mean you’re dehydrated or have another condition.
This is the protein in your blood that holds oxygen.
Lymphocytes are a type of white blood cell. They’re an important part of your immune system.
This is a laboratory calculation based on the number of Lymphocytes.
Mean Cell Haemoglobin Concentration is the average concentration of hemoglobin in your red blood cells.
Mean Cell Haemoglobin is the average mass of hemoglobin (Hb) per red blood cell (RBC) in a sample of blood.
Mean Cell Volume (MCV) measures the average size of your red blood cells.
Mean Platelet Volume (MPV) tests show the mean number of platelets you have in your blood.
Monocytes are a type of white blood cell in your immune system. Monocytes turn into macrophage or dendritic cells when an invading germ or bacteria enters your body. The cells either kill the invader or alert other blood cells to help destroy it and prevent infection.
This is a laboratory calculation based on the number of monocytes as described in the section above.
Neutrophils are a type of white blood cell. They make up the biggest number of all kinds of white blood cells. They kill and digest bacteria and fungi to help your body fight infections and heal wounds.
This is a laboratory calculation based on the number of neutrophils.
A platelet count is a lab test to measure how many platelets you have in your blood. Platelets are parts of the blood that help the blood clot.
A red blood cell (RBC) count is a blood test that tells you how many red blood cells you have.
A red cell distribution width (RDW) test measures the differences in the volume and size of your red blood cells (erythrocytes)
The White Cell Count measures the number of white cells in your blood.
