The platelet count helps to determine the number of platelets in the blood. It helps to screen, diagnose, or monitor the conditions that affect the number of platelets. In adults, the normal platelet count range varies from 150,000 to 450,000 platelets per microliter of blood.

The platelet count is done: 

• As a part of complete blood count 
• In case of unexplained or prolonged bleeding 
• In cases of symptoms which could be due to platelet disorder
