Term Description

Because of the confusion that occurs in countries that report results as both decimal fraction and percent, this property was created to represent decimal fractions that are reported without units.

Part Descriptions

LP14313-8   Monocytes
A monocyte is a mononuclear leukocyte, intimately involved in the initiaton of an immune response. It also protects against blood-borne pathogens and migrates quickly to sites of infection in the tissues. Monocytes are usually identified in stained smears by their large bilobed nucleus. They are produced by the bone marrow from hematopoietic stem cell precursors called monoblasts. The monoblast is the first stage of monocyte maturation. The developmental stages (4 subtypes) of the monocytes are: monoblast, promonocyte, immature monocyte, and mature monocyte.

LP14313-8   Monocytes
Large, phagocytic mononuclear leukocytes, produced in the vertebrate bone marrow and released into the blood. Monocytes contain a large, oval or somewhat indented nucleus surrounded by a large cytoplasm and numerous organelles. Source: National Library of Medicine, MeSH 2006

LP157588-7   Leukocytes
Leukocytes or white blood cells (WBCs) are immune cells that fight infection, neoplasms and other inflammatory conditions, and mediate allergic responses. There are five types of WBCs normally present in the circulation that are all derived from a similar stem cell in the bone marrow. The five type of WBCs are divided into two groups based on the presence or absence of granules in the cytoplasm. The granulocytes include the neutrophils, basophils and eosinophils. The non-granulocytes include the lymphocytes and the monocytes. The neutrophils fight infection by ingesting and digesting bacteria. Eosinophils and basophils respond to allergic reactions and are capable of ingesting antigen-antibody complexes. Monocytes phagocytose bacteria and release interferon to stimulate the immune system. Lymphocytes are divided into T-cells and B-cells. T-cell immunity is cellular and involves the activation of phagocytes and B-cell immunity uses antibodies to fight infection. Both elevated and low leukocyte counts can be markers of infection and malignancy, and low leukocyte counts are associated with a variety of primary and secondary immunodeficiencies, depending on the WBC type(s) that are out of range.
