What is included in a CBC test?
A Complete Blood Count test usually includes the following:
Red blood cell (RBC) count: Red blood cells are also known as erythrocytes and the main function of red blood cells is to carry oxygen from the lungs to the entire body. It also carries back carbon dioxide to the lungs. If the RBC count is low, it is known as anemia, the body will not receive enough oxygen. There is also a condition called polycythemia where the red blood cells can get clumped together and block the capillaries.
White blood cell (WBC) count:White blood cells are also known as leukocytes. They protect our bodies against infection. When a foreign particle enters our body, the WBC fights against the foreign particle. The overall count of white blood cells is less than red blood cells. Whenever there is an infection, the count of white blood cells increases. White blood cells are also used for detecting infection.
Platelet count:Platelets are also known as thrombocytes and these are the smallest type of blood cell. They are important in blood clotting. When bleeding starts, platelets swell and clump together to form a sticky plug that will stop the bleeding. If the platelet count is low in the body, it becomes difficult to stop bleeding. If the platelet count is high in the body, it may form a clump and block a blood vessel. There is also a condition known as atherosclerosis where the platelets may be involved in the blocking of the arteries.
Hemoglobin:The red blood cell is filled with hemoglobin molecules. It is responsible for the color red and it also carries oxygen. Through a hemoglobin test, the amount of hemoglobin is measured and the ability of the body to carry oxygen throughout the body.
CBC Test procedure
A complete blood count test (CBC) is carried out by a lab technician.
The place from where the blood sample is collected is first cleaned.
An elastic band is placed above the cleaned area so that the veins swell with blood.
A needle is inserted into the vein for the collection of the sample.
The blood sample is then pulled into a syringe.
After collecting the blood sample, the needle and the elastic band is removed.
How to prepare for the CBC test?
If you are being tested only for a complete blood count, then there is no restriction on the consumption of the type of food and drinks. If there are any additional tests conducted, then fasting before the test is mandatory. Depending on the tests and medications you are undergoing, your doctor will instruct you.
Things to consider after the CBC test is completed
Once the CBC test is completed, you can carry on with your day-to-day activities. The test results will be available on the MFine app for download within the next 24-48 hours. Once the test results are downloaded, you will receive a call from the doctor who will help you understand the test results.

Why book a CBC blood test in Mumbai?
To monitor the overall health
To identify conditions like anemia, infections, immune system disorders, etc.
Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV): There are three main corpuscles, namely white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Red blood cells transport oxygen from your lungs to every other part of your body. An MCV blood test measures the average size of your red blood cells. Suppose your RBCs are too large or too small, in that case, it could be a sign of anaemia, a vitamin deficiency, or any other medical condition.
Red Cell Distribution List (RDW): This is commonly used to diagnose anaemia, a condition wherein RBCs do not carry enough oxygen to other parts of your body.
Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin (MCH): The test measures the average amount of haemoglobin, a protein, present in your red blood cells. Lower levels of haemoglobin could be a sign of anaemia.
Total WBC: A total WBCs is a measure of white blood cells in your body. WBCs are also called leukocytes. They help fight off infections. Abnormal levels of WBCs indicate infection, inflammation, tissue damage, thyroid, leukaemia or stress.
Haemoglobin Count (HB): This is an indirect measure of RBCs present in your blood.
Platelet Count: Platelets are those cells in your blood that bind and heal broken blood vessels; they are the cells that help form blood clots. Abnormal levels of platelets indicate an underlying health condition such as a stroke or a heart attack.
Red Blood Cells (RBCs): RBCs or erythrocytes are those cells in the blood that carries oxygen to other parts of your body.
HCT(PCV): A hematocrit test measures the number of RBCs in your blood.
RETICS: A reticulocyte count test measures the number of new RBCs in your blood. Doctors use this test to determine if you have any illness that affects your blood, such as aplastic anaemia, hemolytic anaemia, iron deficiency anaemia, and pernicious anaemia.
