What is an FBC and CBC blood test?Full Blood Count

Full Blood Count, also known as a haematology profile, the FBC or CBC provides information on white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets.

Why get a Full Blood Count blood test?

A Full Blood Count, (FBC blood test), is usually requested for patients who may be unwell and can be used to screen for issues such as anaemia, infection and bleeding. What does the test measure?

White Blood Cell Count

  • The WBC (white blood cell) count is a common test within a health assessment and is a measure of your body's ability to fight infection.
  • A normal WBC level can be interpreted as a sign that the first line of defence against invasion by bacteria or other disease-causing organisms is intact and functioning.Moderately elevated white cell counts are a sign of acute infection, while very high counts of abnormal white cells are encountered with leukaemia (a relatively rare form of blood cancer).

Red Blood Cell Count

  • The RBC (red blood cell) count is the number of red blood cells present. It can vary considerably, and a marginally low or high health screening reading may not imply a problem.
  • Significantly reduced numbers within any health check can be associated with anaemia (a deficiency in red cell production, or excessive loss of blood), and very high numbers are seen in polycythaemia (a condition which can be caused by smoking, living at altitude or just because the bone marrow makes too many red cells).
