Special Instructions: See individual procedures for WBC, RBC, HGB, HCT, MCV, MCH, MCHC, PLT, and RDW for normal ranges for different age brackets. The Hemogram (CBC) procedure does not include the WBC differential. The WBC differential must be ordered separately. Single or multiple parameters (i.e. Hemoglobin, Hematocrit) that are included in the Hemogram are not performed individually. A Hemogram will be performed when individual parameters are ordered.
