Test Details & Preparation


  • Red Blood Cell (RBC) Count is done to evaluate the number of red blood cells (RBCs) used to screen for, help diagnose, or monitor conditions affecting red blood cells.

  • Red Blood Cell Count is a part of a complete blood count (CBC) and performed during a health examination, or when a health practitioner suspects that you have a condition such as anaemia (decreased number of RBCs) or polycythemia (increased number of RBCs).

  • A blood sample drawn from a vein in your arm or by a finger-stick (children and adults) or heel-stick (infants) for a Red Blood Cell Count.

  • No test preparation is required for a Red Blood Cell Count.

  • Since Red Blood Cell (RBC) Count is performed as part of a complete blood count (CBC), results from other components are taken into consideration. A rise or drop in the RBC count must be interpreted in conjunction with other parameters, such as haemoglobin, haematocrit, reticulocyte count, or red blood cell indices.

  • Blood or red cell loss that occurs suddenly or over time and diseases and conditions that decrease red blood cell production in the bone marrow will result in a low RBC count.
