Part Description

LP18643-4   Granulocytes
Granulocytes are a category of white blood cells characterised by the presence of granules in their cytoplasm. Mature granulocytes comprise neutrophils, eosinophils and basophils, depending on the staining of the granules. Neutrophils, also called polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN or PML) because of the varying shapes of the nucleus, are by far the most abundant granulocytes.

Reference Information

Type Source Reference
Mapping Guidance Regenstrief Help Granulocytes counts were components of the 3-part automated differential count. So this code was created years ago for those instruments and did not include a method term because there was no ambiguity. It included neutrophils (segs and bands), and eosinophils (per UpToDate Sep 2010). The other components of the 3 part count were lymphocytes and monocytes. Today almost all automated differential counters are 5 or 6 part counts that do not include this term. Mapper’s Guide for the Top 2000 plus LOINC Laboratory Observations
