Leukocyte Unit

Leukocyte Development Stages: Granulocytes, Monocytes, Lymphocytes

Myeloblast Size: 10-18μm Nucleus: Large; oval Chromatin: Finely reticular Nucleoli: 1-5 present; light staining Cytoplasm: Small rim of basophilic stippling No granules present
Promyelocyte Size: 14-20μm Nucleus: Difficult to see Chromatin: More condensed Nucleoli: Present Cytoplasm: Pale blue gray; moderate in amount, Azurophillic granules, very prominent
Myelocyte Size: 12-18μm Nucleus: Oval shaped; smaller Chromatin: Clumped chromatin Nucleoli: None present Cytoplasm: Somewhat blue
Metamyelocyte Size: 10-18μm Nucleus: Becoming kidney bean shape ChromatinL Dense or clumped Nucleoli: None present Cytoplasm: Specific granulation of type is apparent
Band Size: 10-18μm Nucleus: Elongated nucleus, no pinching Cytoplasm: Specific granulation of type is apparent;
Segmented Neutrophil Size: 10-18μm Nucleus: 3-5 lobes, held together by thin filaments; purple/blue Cytoplasm: Azure (Purple/pink/blue) granules
Segmented Eosinophil Size: 10-18μm Nucleus: Typically bi-lobed (up to 3, fuller) purple blue Cytoplasm: Pink/orange/red granules, Large crystalline/shiny, mainly in cytoplasm
Segmented Basophil Size: 10-18μm Nucleus: 3-5 lobes; purple blue, difficult to see Cytoplasm: Purple/blue/black granules, variable in size, throughout cytoplasm
Monoblast Size: 12-20μm Nucleus: Round/oval, central or eccentric, folding; large Chromatin:Fine, lightly dispersed chromatin Nucleoli: 1-4 visible Cytoplasm: Basophilic, intensely stained periphery, prominent perinuclear zone; moderate in amount, No granules
Promonocyte Size: 12-20μm Nucleus: Oval, indented, light purple; large Chromatin: Fine and spongy pattern Nucleoli: 1-5 visible Cytoplasm: Gray blue w Fine dust like azurophilic (red-purple) granules
Monocyte Size: 14-20μm Nucleus: Round, kidney shaped, can be indented or 2+ lobes Chromatin:Lacey chromatin pattern Nucleoli: None present Cytoplasm: Blue gray Fine granulation (ground glass), vaculoes may also be present
Lymphoblast Size: 15-20μm Nucleus: Round/oval, moderate Chromatin: Delicate chromatin pattern Nucleoli: 1-2 present Cytoplasm: Medium blue w dark blue border, abundant; No granules
Prolymphocyte Size: 15-18μm Nucleus: Round/oval, large Chromatin: Slightly condensed chromatin pattern Nucleoli: 0-1 present Cytoplasm: Medium blue with thin darker blue rim, reduced; Azo granules may be present
Lymphocyte Size: 17-20μm Nucleus:Round/oval, cleft may be present, large Chromatin: Dense clumped chromatin pattern Nucleoli: None present Cytoplasm: Light sky blue, scant in volume; a few azo-granules may be present

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
