How long does a complete blood test take?

A complete blood test, also known as a CBC, is a broad blood screening test that examines the cellular make up of your blood, including the concentration of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. It also allows doctors to examine different parts of the blood for different disorders and diseases. The test itself can be very quick, with a turnaround of a matter of minutes.  If the test is performed at a hospital’s lab or requested by an emergency room, the results can come back very quickly. However, if the test is conducted as part of a regular doctor’s visit and sent out to an external lab, it can take up to a few days to receive the results.

Yeah, It depends generally on a particular lab who diagnose your blood. Normally it can take 2-3 days for a Complete blood test. If you need to take care of all the tests regarding your blood then it will take some time to carry out. You can check further more here:http://www.londonhealthcheck.com

Any lab can run a CBC within a few hours. Depending on what lab you had your blood drawn at they would probably sen out for the ANA. When a lab sends out a test is can take anywhere from 2 -3 days to a week. I have worked in hospital and outpatient labs for six years now and run many tests myself. If you are still concerned, give your doctor a call and ask about the results.
