    Complete blood count (CBC) is used to detect a wide range of blood disorders including anaemia, leukaemia and thrombocytopenia. A CBC test can also help analyse any infections in your body. Apollo 24|7’s CBC test price is extremely competitive and the brand utilises the latest technologies to assess the results. The CBC test is often recommended by doctors as the initial blood test to determine diseases or disorders. 

    The CBC test offers an analysis of leucocyte count, Haemoglobin levels, and platelet count, which together determine how healthy your blood is. This analysis helps doctors determine the right treatment and medications for you.

    A CBC test is almost definite for anaemic patients for it charts out the haemoglobin levels and platelet count which are two crucial parameters to understand if the anaemia is worsening or under control. By providing the details on leukocytes count, a CBC test can easily help identify the amount of white blood cells in your blood which can further help understand if you are at risk of cancer. Hence, CBC test can be considered as one of the most important lab tests that are almost referred to all the patients to understand how their body is reacting to the infection.

    The National Health Portal, India, has set the normal range for the CBC test. It suggests that the normal levels of haemoglobin for males should be between 13.8 to 17.2 grams per deciliter of blood (gm/dl) and for women it should be between 12.1 to 15.1 gm/dl. For children it should be between 11 to 16 gm/dl and for pregnant women it should be between 11 to 15.1 gm/dl.

    Apollo uses cutting-edge technologies to analyse blood samples and yet the CBC test price charged by the healthcare provider is competitive.

    The other tests which can be advised entirely depend on the suspected condition or disease. In the case of abnormal WBC results, the culture of the affected area is advised such as blood culture, urine culture, and sputum culture. Tests for viruses like mononucleosis or EBV can be advised. In case inflammation is suspected, a CRP or ESR test may be advised. In the case of abnormal RBC results, the other test advised can include reticulocyte count, iron studies, tests for folate and vitamin B12, Glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase test, or hemoglobinopathy evaluation. In the case of abnormal platelet count, the other test advised can be HIT antibody. Also, additional tests that can be advised include tests for bleeding disorders or excessive clotting disorders such as coagulation factors, prothrombin time, partial thromboplastin time, or von Willebrand factor.
    To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is asked to make a fist. This helps in the buildup of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. The needle is then inserted into the vein in the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
    MCV refers to the mean corpuscular volume. It depicts the measurement of the average size of red blood cells.
    MCH refers to Mean corpuscular hemoglobin. It depicts the measurement of the average amount of hemoglobin inside red blood cells.
    MCHC refers to Mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration. It depicts the average concentration of hemoglobin inside red blood cells.
    The factors which can affect hemoglobin’s level include recent blood transfusion and pregnancy.
    The other tests which can be advised along with hemoglobin test depend upon the cause which needs to be diagnosed. The other tests include CBC, blood smear, iron studies, reticulocyte count, vitamin B12 and folate levels, and bone marrow examination.
