Differential Formula
Explanation:
WBC (White Blood Cell Count) Similarly to the case of “red blood cells”, also the white blood cell definition is a misnomer. Because, also white blood “cells” are unable to replicate and have to be produced by diverse components of the body’s immune system, particularly by the bone marrow, the thymus gland, and the spleen. Their technical cover name is leukocytes. We shall the types which commonly occur in humans and are considered as normal white blood cell types. The determination of their individual concentration is extremely important, because the relationship between their separate measurements offers paramount diagnostic clues. Precisely for this reason, the palette of such data is called the DIFFERENTIAL FORMULA, for this linked configuration of ties renders simple, yet very finely honed and reliable discernment for the diagnostic criteria. (In some countries and medical circles, the mentioned set of data is known as the Schilling Formula, after the Viennese Dr. Schilling, who first configured such information into a diagnostically coherent projection.)
