What does a CBC with diff show?

A CBC with differential can be used to diagnose and monitor many conditions, including infection and anemia. Also known as blood cell count with differential.



What diseases can a CBC diagnose?

These are the types of health problems that a CBC can identify:

  • Anemia (low iron).
  • Autoimmune disorders.
  • Problems with bone marrow.
  • Cancer.
  • Dehydration.
  • Heart disease.
  • Infection.
  • Inflammation.

A CBC with differential detection of cancer can also be done. The CBC (complete blood count) is one example of a blood test that can be used to diagnose cancer. Blood can be detected by this test, if abnormal or too many blood cells are found. A bone marrow biopsy can confirm the diagnosis of blood cancer.

Similar to the above, it is asked: What is the different part of a CBC?"

If the WBC count is low or high, the white blood cell differential can be part of the CBC. WBC differential is used to identify and count the number of five types of white cells (neutrophils and lymphocytes as well as monocytes and eosinophils).

What are the usual values for a CBC that has diff?

CBC with Differential

Differential Cell Number Normal Value (%)
Monocytes: 1800 4-8
Eosinophils: 250 1-3
Basophils: 60 0-1
Bands 0 0-5
