Reticulocyte Count, Automated (Erythropietic Activity)


Use in evaluating erythropoietic activity. A reticulocyte test is used to determine the number and/or percentage of reticulocytes in the blood to help evaluate conditions that affect red blood cells (RBCs), such as anemia or bone marrow disorders. Reticulocytes are newly produced, relatively immature red blood cells. They form and mature in the bone marrow before being released into the blood.
