Title: Neutrophilic granulocyte and monocyte in peripheral blood smear (human)
Description: Stain: May-Grünwald-Giemsa (MGG).
(1): The neutrophil (12-15 mm) shows a dark-stained partly lobulated nucleus with the smaller lobe connected by a fine strand of chromatin to the larger nuclear part. The cytoplasm reveals very faintly small azurophilic (primary) granules.
(2): The monocyte (12-20 mm) contains a large light-stained nucleus with a characteristic indentation with a distinct nucleolus in an light-stained apparently empty cytoplasm as the small primary or azurophilic granules are hardly visible.
