A FBE is a commonly used test by physicians as a primary assessment that can help to diagnose a wide range of illnesses, infections and diseases. The FBE test looks for abnormalities in the blood, such as unusually high or low numbers of blood cells. Blood cells include red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. Many conditions can cause an abnormal blood count.
