Cell Count (Body Fluids)


Calculation of cell counts refers to the quantification of a sample’s number of cells. Cell counts provide important information about biological processes. Calculation of cell counts helps to understand the behaviour of cells, the progression of disease, and the effectiveness of treatment. For example, CSF (cranial spinal fluid) is the fluid that surrounds the brain and the spinal cord. Pleural fluid (fluid around the lungs) is the fluid surrounding the lungs. Peritoneal fluid (fluid in the abdomen) is the fluid around the stomach. Synovial fluid (fluid inside the joints) is the fluid inside the joints.
