HelloI have not received a reply from you.Therefore I am answering as per the information available.It has been seen that a total leucocyte ( white blood cell ) count above 1.7 × 103/μL is indicative of infection in the knee joint.Count below this level means that the chance of infection is quite low.Synovial fluid leukocyte differential of >65% neutrophils also indicated infection.A value lower than this makes infection less likely.Color is not as important as the leucocyte count and the neutrophil percentage.Please reply if you want to discuss further.
