Hematocrit – The amount of red blood cells in the blood.
Hemoglobin – A protein that transports oxygen or carbon dioxide in the blood.
Mean corpuscular volume (MCV) – Measures the average volume of red blood
cells in the blood.
Mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH) – The amount of hemoglobin per red
Mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) – The amount of
hemoglobin concentrated in a given volume of red blood cells.
Red cell distribution width (RDW) – Measures the difference of red blood cell
size or volume in blood sample.
Percentage and absolute differential counts – Measures the amounts of
different white blood cell types within the blood.
Platelet count (RBC) – Measures the amount of platelets (fragments and
particles of cells) in the blood that are crucial for blood clotting.
White blood cell count (WBC) – Measures the amounts of different white blood
cell types within the blood.
Iron – The iron blood test measures the amount of iron in the blood. Iron is a
mineral that is needed by your body to produce hemoglobin, energy, and
maintaining proper muscle and organ function.
Total iron-binding capacity (TIBC) – Is used to differentiate between anemia
types and gives more iron statistics than the Iron test alone.
Ferritin – Ferritin is present in small concentrations that correlate with total-body
iron stores, making its measurement valuable for the assessment of disorders
relating to iron metabolism.
Folic acid (Folates) – This test measures levels of folic acid (folate). Folic acid is
a B vitamin that plays an important role in DNA synthesis and producing red
blood cells. Folic acid is absorbed through the small intestine and stored in the
liver and must be ingested through diet since it cannot be made by the body
Vitamin B12 – This test measures levels of vitamin B12, also known as
Cobalamin. B12 plays an important role in the normal functioning of the central
nervous system, metabolism, and the formation of red blood cells. Deficiencies
may occur in individuals with digestive disorders like celiac disease or irritable
