The WBC Differential Count studies the number of varied types of WBCs in the blood. There are five major types of white blood cells including neutrophils, band neutrophils (immature neutrophils) monocytes, eosinophils, lymphocytes, and basophils. The number of WBC cells of each variety found in the blood is essential in determining the efficacy of the immune system. Too many or few of any these WBCs can be indicative of infections, allergies, diseases. You may even have toxic reactions to medicines or chemicals.
