Just wanted to share with you this picture I took at the Lab today. I know it’s not the best blood smear nor the best staining ever but I liked the look on those cells you can see.
These are blood cells. Cells like those ones are happily going through your veins and arteries. The red small ones are called erythrocytes and they are the ones that carry the oxygen all over your body. The upper one (grayish-purple) is a neutrophil, which fights infections. Finally, the pink granulated one is an eosinophil, a cell that helps us fight with parasites.
