Distribution of various types of white cells in the blood. Used to determine Absolute Neutrophil Count (ANC)
a white blood cell count that reports the number of each kind of white blood cell in a sample of 100 cells
There are five types of white blood cells, each with different functions: neutrophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils, and basophils. The differential reveals if these cells are present in normal proportion to another, if one cell type is increased or decreased, or if immune cells are present. Therefore, increases and decreases in types of white blood cells are individual values and can signify certain conditions, including infections and cancers of the blood.
Related to white blood cell count, the proportions of the different varieties.
This is a section of a complete blood count (CBC); it looks at five different types of white blood cells including: neutrophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils and basophils. They are reported individually as a percentage of the total number of WBC; the percentages are multiplied by the total number of white blood cells to get the absolute count.
