Product Description

Reticulocytes are immature Red Blood Cells produced by the Bone Marrow. Reticulocytes mature and develop in the bone marrow, circulate in the blood stream for about a day and mature in to fully functional Red Blood Cells (erythrocytes). Reticulocytes compose only about 1% of total RBC in the blood at any given time. A measure of Reticulocytes is a good indicator of how well your Bone Marrow is functioning since it is directly responsible for producing reticulocytes. A lower count can also give as indication of various underlying diseases and conditions and also for monitoring disease management and treatment. The test is usually ordered to detect the specific cause of anaemia (Haemolytic Anaemia – Anaemia due to abnormal breakdown of red blood cells).
