In brief: Day/couple days..
Apparently, glandular fever is a viral infection caused by the epstein-barr virus.
Two blood tests are done. One is a test for antibody to epstein-barr virus, the other is a test for white blood cell count. The WBC is part of a complete blood count (CBC) and usually takes one day. The other may be longer, like two to four days, depending on the lab schedule, etc.
