Platelet Count - Thrombocyte Count


Platelets are tiny blood cells that help clot blood. They attach to damaged blood vessels and form clots. Platelets play an important role in preventing excessive bleeding. Platelet disorders can cause bleeding problems or clot complications.

The Platelet Count test is performed to diagnose and monitor conditions affecting blood clotting, such as bleeding disorders, thrombocytopenia (low platelet count), thrombocytosis (high platelet count), and to assess bleeding or clotting risk before surgical procedures.
