Full Blood Count Test Singapore

What is a Full Blood Count Test?

A full blood count (FBC), also known as complete blood count (CBC), is a blood test used to assess your overall health. This blood test can detect a wide range of disorders, including anemia, infection and leukemia.

What does a Full Blood Count Test for in Singapore?

The full blood count test measures these components and features of your blood:

  • Red blood cells, which carry oxygen
  • White blood cells, which fight infection
  • Hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying protein in red blood cells
  • Hematocrit, the proportion of red blood cells to the fluid component, or plasma, in your blood
  • Platelets, which help with blood clotting

Any abnormal increases or decreases in cell counts may indicate an underlying medical condition that requires further evaluation.

Can I do a Full Blood Count Test as part of regular health screening?

Yes, you may. This may also allow you to understand your baseline.

Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR)

Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR), can also be ordered along with your full blood count test to detect inflammatory activity in your body. This test can be ordered when evaluating unexplained fever, certain types of arthritis or even symptoms that affect your muscles. The ESR test is also usually accompanied by other blood tests that your doctor may deem necessary to understand more about a condition.
