    The word BANDA occurs without direct context in a list of analyses of blood along with the usual LINFOCITOS, EOSINOFILOS, GLOBULOS ROJOS, etc., etc.

    The normal range (INTERVALO BIOLOGICO DE REFERENCIA) is only 0-3%.

    There are just too many meanings for BANDAS, and I have not been able to discover any that refer to blood tests.

    What are these in English, please?

    Mucdhas gracias.

    I may be wrong, because I'm not an MD, just an interpreter, but I think bands are the immature neutrophils.

    Yes - danielfranco has it right. Bands (or band neutrophils) are one form of immature neutrophil.
