Complete Blood Count (CBC) is a calculation of the cellular elements of blood. Earlier these were done manually, but nowadays they are determined by cell counters that analyze the different components of blood in less than a minute with much better accuracy. CBC requires 2-3 mL of whole blood in an EDTA bulb. A major portion of CBC is the concentration of WBC, RBC and platelets in the blood. The complete blood count (also called CBC) is generated by testing a simple blood sample. WBC count is generally between 4,300 and 10,800 cells per cmm (cubic millimetre, mm3), RBC between 4.2 - 5.9 million cells/cmm. Normal range for haemoglobin is approximately 13 - 18 gm/dL for men and 12 - 16 gm/dL for women. Red cell indices: several indices of RBCs help determine the cause of most of the common ailments of RBCs.
