Test Details & Preparation


  • Peripheral Blood Smear test is done to evaluate your red blood cells (RBCs), white blood cells (WBCs), and platelets, to distinguish between the different types of WBCs, and to determine their relative percentages in the blood to help detect, diagnose, and/or monitor a range of deficiencies, diseases, and disorders involving blood cell production, function, and lifespan.

  • Peripheral Blood Smear test is performed when complete blood count (CBC) or automated WBC differential results are abnormal or when you have signs and symptoms that a health practitioner suspects are due to a condition affecting your blood cells.

  • A blood sample drawn from a vein in your arm or by pricking a finger, ear or, in the case of an infant, a heel.

  • No preparation is needed for a Peripheral Blood Smear test.

  • Findings from a blood smear evaluation are not always diagnostic in themselves and more often indicate the presence of an underlying condition, its severity, and the need for further diagnostic testing.

  • The results of a blood smear typically include a description of the appearance of the red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets as well as any abnormalities that may be seen on the slide.

  • Blood smears may be used to help diagnose malaria, a disease caused by a blood parasite. The parasite may be seen when a blood smear is examined under a microscope.
