Blood Film, Consultation


Reference Range

A blood film, or peripheral blood smear, is a microscopic slide made from a drop of blood, which allows the cells to be examined microscopically. Blood films are usually done to investigate hematological problems; identifying immature and abnormal cells, and to look for parasites within the blood such as malaria and filaria. There are many diseases, disorders, and deficiencies that can have an effect on the number and type of blood cells produced, their function, and their lifespan, such as: abnormal production of cells in the bone marrow, increased cell destruction, megaloblastic anemia, thalassemia, iron-deficiency anemia, hemolytic anemia, and different types of leukemia.
