ANC Calculator


ANC equals the Total WBC count multiplied by the total percentage of neutrophils (segs plus bands).

Example 1:
WBC = 4.3 Segs = 48% Bands = 2%
4300 x (0.48 + 0.02) = 4300 x 0.5 = ANC of 2,150
Enter: 4.3 (WBC) 48 (Segs %) 2 (Bands %)

Example 2:
WBC = 4.3 Neutrophils = 50%
4300 x 0.5 = ANC of 2,150
Enter: 4.3 (WBC) 50 (Neutrophils %)


Enter values and press the "Calculate" button.    (e.g. Enter 4300 as 4.3)
WBC count (x10≥/mm≥): Segs (%): Bands (%):
 OR
WBC count (x10≥/mm≥): Neutrophils (%):  
 
ANC Value: .
