Plasma The colorless fluid part of the blood lymph or milk in which compulsives or fat globules are suspended
Buffy coat The fraction of an anti­coagulated blood sample that contains most of the white blood cells and platelets following density gradient centrifugation of the blood
Hematocrit The ratio of the volume of red blood cells to the total volume of blood
Albumin A simple form of protein that is soluble in water and coagulable by heat such as that found in egg white milk and in blood serum
Erythrocytes ­A red blood cell that is typically a biconcave disc without a nucleus contains the pigment hemoglobin which impairs the red color to blood and transports oxygen and carbon dioxide to and from the tissues
Hemoglobin a red protein responsible for transporting oxygen in the blood of vertebrate it's molecule comprises of four subunits each containing an iron Atom bound to a heme group
Anemia A condition marked by a deficiency of red blood cells or hemoglobin in the blood results in pallor and weariness
Leukocytes A colorless so that circulates in the blood and body fluids and is involved in counteracting foreign substances and diseases
Granulocytes A white blood cell with secretory granules in its cytoplasm
Neutrophilis a type of white blood cell you lose sight that is filled with microscopic granules little sacks containing enzymes that digest microorganisms
Eosynophils A white blood cell containing the granules sides that are readily stain by eosin
Basophils A type of white blood cell with course bluish black granules of uniform size within the cytoplasm
Histamine A compound that is released by cells in response to injury in in allergic and inflammatory reaction causing contraction of smooth muscle and dilation of capillaries
Agranulocytes also known as mononuclear leukocytes are white blood cells with a one lobe nucleus characterized by the absence of granules in their cytoplasm which distinguishes them from granulocytes
Monocytes A large phagocytic White blood cell with a simple oval nucleus and clear grayish cytoplasm
Lymphocytes A form of small Leukocyte with a single round nucleus occur in the specially in the lymphatic system
Platelets ­small colorless disc shaped cell fragments without a nucleus found in large numbers in blood involved in clotting
Haematopoiesis­ The production of all types of blood cells including formation development and differentiation of blood cells
Erythropoietin­ A hormone secreted by the kidneys that increase the rate of production of red blood cells in response to failing levels of oxygen in the tissues
Hemostasis­ The stopping of a flow of blood
Thrombus­ A blood clot formed in site within the vascular system of the body and impending blood flow
Embolus­ A blood clot air bubble piece of fatty deposit or other object that has been carried in the blood stream two large vessel and cause an embolism

Hemophila­ A medical condition where the ability of the blood to clot is severely reduce causing the sufferer to bleed severly from even a slight injury
Antigen­ A tocsin or other foreign substance that induces in immune response in the body especially the production of antibodies
Antibodies­ A blood protein produced in response to an counteracting a specific antigen they combine chemically with substances that the body recognizes as alien
Agglutination­ A reaction in which particles suspended in a liquid collects into clumps and which occur especially as a Serocogical response to a specific antibody
Hemolysis­ The rupture or destruction of red blood cells
Leukemia­ A progressive disease where the bone marrow and other blood forming organs produce increased number of immature or abnormal leukocytes these suppress the production of normal blood cells leading to anemia and other symptoms
Polycythemia­ and abnormally increased concentration of hemoglobin in the blood through either reproduction of plasma volume or increase in red cell numbers
