The mast cell granulations are stained pure blue, the eosinophil red, the neutrophil in mixed colour.
The nuclei are greenish, the red blood corpuscles orange, the acidophil granulation copper red, the neutrophil violet.
In isolated cases the increase at this time was very considerable; and in one case amounted almost to 12% of all neutrophil cells.
The mononuclear and transitional forms of the neutrophil group, do not under normal circumstances pass over into the blood-stream.
Of great theoretical interest is the contrast between eosinophil and neutrophil cells.
neutrophil neu·tro·phil (nōō'trə-fĭl', nyōō'-) or neu·tro·phile (-fīl')
A neutrophil cell, especially an abundant type of granular white blood cell that is highly destructive of microorganisms.
