Frequently Asked Questions about Absolute Neutrophil Count in Ranchi

Q. What all conditions can an ANC test detect?

An ANC test can help identify any infection, cause of inflammation, and other conditions such as autoimmune disorders, bone marrow disorders, etc.

Q. How is an ANC done?

An ANC test is done using a sample of blood that is withdrawn from a patient’s vein. The blood sample is collected in a vial and sent to the lab for analysis.

Q. Is there any risk associated with an ANC test?
