This test measures how many platelets you have within a certain amount (volume) of blood.
A blood sample is required for this test. It is usually collected by inserting a needle into a blood vessel or by sticking a finger with a small needle.
Your test results will be reported as a value. This value shows how many platelets are in the blood volume. It will be given as platelets per cubic millimeter (mm3) of blood.
A result that is within your reference range is considered normal. This means that you have a normal number of platelets in your blood.
