The complete blood count (CBC) is often used as a broad screening test to determine an individual’s general health status. It can be used to:

  • Screen for a wide range of conditions and diseases
  • Help diagnose various conditions, such as anemia, infection, inflammation, bleeding disorder or leukemia, to name just a few
  • Monitor the condition and/or effectiveness of treatment after a diagnosis is established
  • Monitor treatment that is known to affect blood cells, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy
