Leukocytes a visual tour

Leukocytes: A visual tour

Laboratory Procedures


There are 5 white blood cells

There are 5 White Blood Cells

  • Segmented Neutrophil

  • Lymphocyte

  • Monocyte

  • Eosinophil

  • Basophil


Let s break them down

Let’s Break them Down!

  • Granulocytes

    • Segmented Neutrophil

    • Eosinophil

    • Basophil

  • Agranulocytes

    • Lymphocyte

    • Monocyte


The agranulocytes no granules in cytoplasm

The Agranulocytes(No granules in cytoplasm)

  • The Monocyte

  • The Lymphocyte

    • If there appear to be granules in a Monocyte’s cytoplasm, it is probably debris from it’s last meal!

    • Look for vacuoles (Stomachs) to tell if it is a Monocyte.


The granulocytes have granules in cytoplasm

The Granulocytes(Have granules in cytoplasm)

  • Segmented Neutrophils (there are 3 types)

  • Basophils

  • Eosinophils

    • On Basophils, the granules will stain BLUE

    • On Eosinophils, the granules will stain RED

    • Segmented Neutrophils granules are clear and not readily visible when stained.


Segmented neutrophil the adult

Band cell the baby neutrophil

Hyper segmented neutrophil the senior citizen

Hyper-Segmented Neutrophil (The Senior Citizen)


Lymphocyte the guard dog large nucleus

Lymphocyte (The Guard Dog)Large Nucleus


Monocyte the scavenger has vacuoles

Monocyte (The Scavenger) Has Vacuoles


Eosinophil the allergy slayer granules stain red

Eosinophil (The Allergy Slayer)Granules stain RED


Basophil the unknown stranger granules stain blue

Basophil (The Unknown Stranger)Granules stain BLUE
