A healthy result should fall into the range 0 - 6 %.

Neutrophils are a type of cell belonging to the white blood cell (WBC) group. This family is commonly referred to as the “leukocytes,” and their primary function is to protect our bodies from stressors and infection. A mature neutrophil circulating in the bloodstream will have a divided or segmented nucleus. The nucleus of a less mature neutrophil will not be separated but will have a rod-like “band” shape.  When our bodies have succumbed to an infection, such as an acute bacterial infection, the total number of mature neutrophils and band neutrophils will increase in response. This process is referred to as a “shift to the left” and indicates an infection.  The test ordered to assess band neutrophil concentration is called a “differential blood count,” and it measures all five types of WBCs in the leukocyte group. The results of this test can help to reveal any abnormalities in the WBCs (i.e., an increase in “immature” band neutrophils). 

Normal Ranges:

Band neutrophils should account for only 0%-6% of white blood cells.
