The TC DC Platelets panel is a comprehensive panel of tests offered by Apollo 24|7. It is designed to detect and monitor various conditions and diseases related to blood cells. This test provides valuable insights into the overall health of an individual by assessing the total count (TC), differential count (DC), and platelet levels in the bloodstream.

The TC DC blood test is commonly used to detect and monitor various conditions and diseases, including:

  • Infections: Elevated white blood cell (WBC) counts can indicate the presence of bacterial, viral, or fungal infections in the body.
  • Leukaemia: Abnormal WBC counts and their distribution patterns may help in diagnosing different types of leukaemia.
  • Anaemia: The panel helps determine red blood cell (RBC) counts and haemoglobin levels, aiding in the diagnosis of different types of anaemia.
  • Thrombocytopenia: Low platelet count can indicate a condition where the body doesn't produce enough platelets or destroys them too quickly.
  • Inflammatory Disorders: High WBC counts can be indicative of inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus.

The symptoms associated with the above conditions vary but may include:

  • Frequent infections, fever, or chills
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Pale skin or shortness of breath
  • Easy bruising or excessive bleeding
  • Joint pain, swelling, or stiffness

To perform the TC and DC test, a sample of whole blood is required. The procedure is quick and relatively painless. Some patients may experience slight bruising or discomfort at the site of the needle insertion for blood collection. The sample is collected in an EDTA tube, which prevents coagulation and ensures the preservation of blood cell integrity during transportation to the laboratory.

Once the sample is collected, it is sent to the laboratory for analysis. The TC DC blood test involves an automated examination of the blood sample using advanced haematology analysers. These analysers provide accurate and reliable results by quantifying different components of the blood, including WBCs, RBCs, and platelets.

In the case of a positive result indicating a specific condition or disease, it is crucial to consult a healthcare professional for further evaluation and appropriate treatment. The treatment options may vary depending on the diagnosed condition and can include medication, lifestyle changes, or specialised therapies.

Early detection through the TC and DC test can significantly impact treatment outcomes and overall health management. Some benefits of opting for this panel early on include:

1. Accurate Diagnosis: Timely testing allows for accurate identification and diagnosis of underlying conditions.

2. Prompt Treatment: Early detection enables healthcare professionals to initiate appropriate treatment strategies promptly.

3. Disease Monitoring: Regular monitoring with subsequent tests helps track the effectiveness of treatments and adjust them if necessary.
