Complete Blood Test (CBC Test)

A complete blood count test (CBC) is a group of blood tests done to evaluate and measure the cells that circulate in the blood. The test measures three main types of blood cells Red blood cells, White blood cells & Platelets.

A Complete Blood Count (CBC) test is important in detecting any underlying health issues or infections in the body. The CBC test price may vary depending on the location.

When is a CBC Test prescribed?

A doctor may advise a CBC test to analyze overall health or to detect various disorders like Anemia, infections, allergies, inflammatory diseases & many more.

Components of CBC Test

RBC count:

Measures the actual number of red blood cells in blood.

Lower RBC indices

Higher RBC indices

White blood cells

Fight against infection in the body & an essential part of body’s defense mechanism. CBC test measures the total number of white cells in the blood. The CBC with differential identifies and counts the number of the five types of white blood cells present.

These values can help in diagnosing bacterial, parasitic, viral, allergic infections, or cancer.


Tiny cell fragments circulating in the blood and are vital for normal blood clotting
