Platelet Count

No special preparation required

Platelets are the smallest possible cells of our blood and are visible only under a microscope. In their inactive state, they resemble tiny plates. When a blood vessel is injured, it sends a signal. When platelets receive that signal, they will travel to the spot and convert into their "active" configuration. Platelets develop long tentacles to contact the ruptured blood vessel, resembling a spider or an octopus.
