The "CBC with differential" measures the number and distribution of each of the different types of cells in the blood (red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets). The assessment of the number, shape, and size of red blood cells screens for anemia, genetic disorders, and certain vitamin and nutrient deficiencies (hemoglobin, hematocrit, MCV, MCHC). The distribution of white blood cells (neutrophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils, etc.) screens for infection, allergies, and other disorders of the immune system.

Blood analysis containing an enumeration of the number of red and white blood cells per unit of blood volume, the proportions of the different white blood cell types, and the amount of hemoglobin present.
A blood test in which all of the different components of blood are measured, including the red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, hematocrit, and hemoglobin.
a measurement of size, number, and maturity of the different blood cells in a specific volume of blood. More about CBC.
A hematology study which consists of a red cell count, white cell count, hematocrit, hemoglobin, and blood smear study including differential white cell count.
The number of red corpuscles and white blood cells in a given measure of blood. A CBC will determine haemoglobin and haematocrit counts. Compound Heterozygote: If an individual has the C282Y mutation on one chromosome and the H63D on the other,these individuals are compound heterozygotes.In Ireland 1 in 25 are compound heterozygotes. Heterozygote-If an individual has only one mutated gene, the person is referred to as a heterozygote.This person is a carrier .One in five people in Ireland are carriers.
A test of the blood that includes red blood cell count, white blood cell count, erythrocyte indices, hematocrit, differential blood count, and sometimes platelet count.
A test often used to monitor people with HIV. A CBC measures the number of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
A count of the number of cells from a given sample of blood (red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, etc.).

The CBC is a test that determines the number of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets in the blood.
A blood test which measures the different types and number of blood cells.
A group of blood tests including hemoglobin concentration, red blood cell count and white blood cell count.
A routine analysis performed on a sample of blood taken from the patient's vein with a needle and vacuum tube. The measurements taken in a CBC include a white blood cell count, a red blood cell count, the red cell distribution width, the hematocrit (ratio of the volume of the red blood cells to the blood volume), and the amount of hemoglobin (the blood protein that carries oxygen). CBCs are a routine blood test used for many medical reasons, not only for AIDS patients. They can help the doctor determine if a patient is in advanced stages of the disease.
A blood test done in a laboratory to find out the number of red blood cells (RBC's), white blood cells (WBC's), platelets, hemoglobin, and hematocrit in your blood. These blood cells are made in the marrow of your bones.

A test that measures the number of red blood cells, white blood cells, the amount of hemoglobin, hematocrit, and platelets. Low white blood cell and platelet counts may indicate liver scarring.
A blood test that measures white and red blood cells, platelets, hemoglobin, and other cells. In CML a "white cell differential" is usually performed along with the CBC. This tells which of several kinds of white cells are present and in what proportion. See more in Understanding Blood.
A series of tests to examine components of blood. The tests are useful in diagnosing certain health problems and in following the results of treatment.
A count of the red, white, and platelet cells in peripheral blood.
The number of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets in a sample of blood. Also called blood count.

(CBC) A sample of blood is drawn from a vein or central venous access device and is analyzed to determine how many white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets are present. Hematocrit and hemoglobin tests, which can detect anemia, are also performed. A differential cell count may also be performed to count the different types of white blood cells.
The determination of the blood cells in a definite volume of blood that includes separate counts for red and white blood cells.

A complete blood count (CBC) or full blood count (FBC) or full blood exam (FBE) is a test requested by a doctor or other medical professional that gives information about the cells in a patient's blood. A Medical technologist performs the requested testing and provides the requesting Medical Professional with the results of the CBC. A CBC is also known as a "hemogram".
