The ANC calculator (Absolute Neutrophil Count calculator) is a tool that enables you to estimate the total count of neutrophils in the blood, which is useful in the assessment of the risk connected with infectious conditions. An example of this is sepsis in patients undergoing chemotherapy. It allows for quick diagnosis of neutropenia – a condition when the number of neutrophils in blood is substantially lowered.
The indicator in evaluating neutropenia is Absolute Neutrophil Count (ANC). In this article you will learn more about ANC and how to interpret its result. You will also find out what the ANC formula is.
