A platelet count test is done to determine the number of platelets in blood. It is done as a part of the routine Complete Blood Count (CBC) test. This test suggests if the number of platelets in the blood is high or low. The test is often done to monitor underlying conditions or treatments that may affect the platelets.

Platelet count test is most commonly done to check for diseases and disorders affecting the blood; like bleeding disorders, bone marrow diseases, or clot related diseases. A blood sample is collected from the arm for adults and from heels in children.

Platelets are tiny fragments of cells that are essential in the normal clotting of blood. They are also called thrombocytes and are produced in the bone marrow. These platelets form clumps or clots to prevent and stop bleeding. They also activate other platelets that assist in the coagulation cascade that activates the clotting factors. This forms a clot that remains on the wound until it heals.

Platelets live for 8-10 days after being released into the circulation from the bone marrow. The bone marrow repeatedly produces new platelets to maintain the number. Platelet count test helps in determining the range of disorders that may indicate low or high number of platelets. The normal range of platelets is from 150,000 to 450,000 platelets per microlitre of blood.

Platelets count can be affected by a variety of reasons. These conditions include bleeding disorders, bone marrow diseases, platelet diseases, etc. Thrombocytopenia is the condition where the platelets count is lower than normal. Platelets count higher than normal is termed as thrombocytosis.

Thrombocytopenia can be caused by certain underlying diseases, medications, viral infections, pregnancy, and vitamin deficiencies, amongst others. Thrombocytosis occurs when there is inflammation, abnormal levels of iron, cancer, etc. When the platelet count is lower than 50,000, there is an increased risk of bleeding.

Platelet count test is ordered by the doctor when the patient shows signs and symptoms such as unexplained bruising, prolonged bleeding from wounds, frequent nosebleeds, excessive menstrual bleeding, excessive clotting, or improper functioning of the platelets.

A blood sample is collected from the arm or hand. The platelet count is measured via a machine that determines the exact number of platelets. A person may develop a small mark or a bruise but the test is otherwise painless and has no risks. The test requires no special preparation and is conducted as a part of routine blood examination (as in the case of CBC test) or can be prescribed by the physician depending upon the signs and symptoms.
