Blood Cells

Erythrocytes (red blood cells; RBCs) Blood smears containing some platelets. Erythrocytes carry oxygen. The RBCs appear hollow because mature RBCs have no nuclei. The cells are not hollow just thinner in the center.

Erythrocytes Iron in the hemoglobin is responsible for the red appearance. When oxygen combines with the iron to form oxyhemoglobin it turns red. When the oxygen is removed there is a purplish or bluish tinge.

Platelets and Erythrocytes Platelets are small cellular pieces that function to promote blood clotting. They adhere to a damaged region of a blood vessel and initiate a complex reaction. They have no nucleus. They stain red to purple and are much smaller than red blood cells.

Basophil (granular leukocytes) Basophil with some platelets on the left. Basophils function as mast cells and can be identified from the other granulocyte (Eosinophils) by the differences in the structure of the nucleus. The

nucleus of eosinopils is lobe whereas in the nucleus in basophils are not as notably lobulated. Less than 1% of leukocytes are basophils.

Eosinophils (granular leukocyte) Eosinophils are identified by bilobed nucleus and granular cytoplasm. About 2% to 4% of all leukocytes are eosinophils. Eosinophils are phagocytic cells with an affinity for antigenantibody complexes.

Neutrophils (granular leukocytes) Granules are very difficult to see. Neutrophils are identified by their nucleus that is made up of a number of lobes held together by strings of chromatin. Approximately 60% to 70% of all leukocytes are neutrophils. Neutrophils are phagocytic cells. They are particularly attracted to microorganisms.

Monocytes (agranular leukocyte) Monocytes can be identified by the large horseshoe shaped nucleus. Approximately 3% to 8% of all leukocytes are monocytes. Monocytes function as phagocytes at the site of infection that destroy bacteria, foreign matter and cellular debris.

Lymphocyte (agranular leukocyte) Both large and small lymphocytes contain a large dark nucleus that occupies most of the cytoplasm. 20% to 30% of all leukocytes are lymphocytes. Lymphocytes differentiate into plasma cells that produce antibodies.
