What our patients say?

WBC

A WBC count is a blood test to measure the number of white blood cells (WBCs) in the blood. WBCs are also called leukocytes. They help fight infections.

RBC

An RBC count is a blood test that measures how many red blood cells (RBCs) you have. RBCs contain hemoglobin, which carries oxygen. How much oxygen your body tissues get depends on how many RBCs you have and how well they work.

HGB

A hemoglobin test measures the amount of hemoglobin (Hb or Hgb) in your blood. This protein in your red blood cells (RBCs) carries oxygen and carbon dioxide between the lungs and the rest of the body. An altered hemoglobin level is often a sign of disease.

HCT

A hematocrit (he-MAT-uh-krit) test measures the proportion of red blood cells in your blood. Red blood cells carry oxygen throughout your body. Having too few or too many red blood cells can be a sign of certain diseases.

MCV

An MCV blood test measures the average size of your red blood cells, also known as erythrocytes. Red blood cells move oxygen from your lungs to every cell in your body.

RDW

A red cell distribution width (RDW) test measures the differences in the volume and size of your red blood cells (erythrocytes). Red blood cells carry oxygen from your lungs to every cell in your body.

MCHC

MCHC checks the average amount of hemoglobin in a group of red blood cells. Your doctor may use both measurements to help in a diagnosis of anemia.

LYMPH

Doctors refer to a blood test that counts how many lymphocytes are in the blood as a B and T cell screen. This test measures the levels of the main types of white blood cells in the body. Lymphocyte count is one part of a complete blood count (CBC), which is a larger whole blood test.

MONO

The mononucleosis spot test looks for 2 antibodies in the blood. These antibodies appear during or after an infection with the virus that causes mononucleosis, or mono. A throat swab can be used to determine if Group A Streptococcus bacteria is the cause of pharyngitis in a patient.

EOS

An absolute eosinophil count is a blood test that measures the number of one type of white blood cells called eosinophils. Eosinophils become active when you have certain allergic diseases, infections, and other medical conditions. Blood is comprised of red blood cells, platelets, and various white blood cells.

BASO

This test shows the number and condition of your white blood cells, your red blood cells and your platelets. Since basophils are a type of white blood cell, your provider may opt for CBC with differential. This test details how many basophils and other white blood cells you have.

PLT

A plt examines the platelet count the number of platelets in the blood and is often carried out during a general health examination. This test is useful in determining platelet count normal range for those who are taking medications that could affect the count significantly.

MCH

The mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH) measurement is part of a complete blood count (CBC) test. The MCH represents the average amount of hemoglobin in a cell.

NEUT

Neutrophils help your immune system fight infections and heal injuries. Neutrophils are the most common type of white blood cell in your body. An absolute neutrophil count identifies whether your body has enough neutrophils or if your count is above or below a healthy range.
