705-4Basophils [#/volume] in Blood by Manual countActive

Term Description

The total number of basophilic white blood cells quantitated first by performing a manual hemocytometer count for the white blood cell count, then quantitating the percentage of basophils from a peripheral smear. The absolute basophil count is determined by multiplying the total white blood cell count by the percentage of basophils counted on the peripheral smear.

Part Description

LP14328-6   Basophils
Basophils are granular white blood cells characterized by a pale-staining nucleus with 2 to 3 lobes and a cytoplasm containing coarse, dark-staining granules of variable size. They represent 0.5-1% of circulating leukocytes and they are stained by basic dyes. When activated, they release histamine, leukotrienes and a number of cytokines.
