Absolute Neutrophil Count (ANC) Calculator

  • Total WBC (cells/mm 3)

  • % of cells Neutrophils

  • % of cells Bands

  • ANC (cells/mm3)=

Formula Used:

ANC (cells/mm3) = [(Neutrophil % + Band Cells %) x Total WBC] / 100


ANC - Absolute Neutrophil Count
WBC - White Blood Cells

If ANC is lessthan 500 then the patient will be at risk for infection by a variety of pathogens. Free Online Medical Calculator.
