Full Blood Examination (FBE)

A Full Blood Examination (FBE) is a blood test which measures a large number of blood parameters, most notably the Haemoglobin (blood count), White Cell Count and number of Platelets.

 

Haemoglobin levels my indicate anaemia, a white blood cell count may indicate an infection or allergy and the number of platelets may reveal the reason for easy bruising of bleeding.
