Since the 1930's peripheral blood cell counts are among the most common clinical tests contributing to diagnosis of a wide variety of diseases. The original Schilling formula, based on findings in a European population at the beginning of this century are still used as reference in our country. We therefore report the values found in a population of both sexes without manifest disease and qualifying to be blood donors. Means, 5 and 95 percentiles for 212 males and 43 females obtained with the use of a Technicon H6000 are reported.
