Absolute Granulocyte Count
Understanding Absolute Granulocyte Count
What is Absolute Granulocyte Count?
Absolute Granulocyte Count (AGC) is the outcome of a blood test that determines the cell number for each blood cell type, hemoglobin levels, and gran CBC count. It's a simple and quick method. The AGC test is a component of the complete blood count (CBC). Granulocytes have a typical range of 1.5 - 8.5 x 109/L. Granulopenia is indicated by values below, and granulocytosis is shown by the values above the normal range. Low and high granulocyte counts can be affected by a multitude of medical problems such as infections, inflammation, or malignancies, where the number of immature granulocytes rapidly increases.
