The color of your blood originates from your red blood cells. You have less white blood cells than red blood cells. Lymphocytes are a type of leukocyte. About 20% to 40% of your white blood cells are lymphocytes. For each 600 to 700 red cell, you have one leukocyte. There is also another type of lymphocyte called all-natural killer cells. These natural killer cells have the ability to damage tumor cells without any previous activation. When these memory lymphocytes meet an antigen momentarily time, they respond rapidly and especially to this antigen. There are a few blood tests that test for leukocyte. A complete blood count is a blood test that determines various parts of your blood. It gauges: Red blood cells; White blood cells; Platelets, the cells which assist with blood clot; Hemoglobin, the protein in your blood that brings oxygen; Hematocrit, which is the ratio of red blood cells to plasma, the liquid component of your blood. If your blood is only to be used for the total blood count, you do not require to rapid and can consume normally. Your medical care professional will take an example of your blood and send it to a lab. A specialist will suspend your blood example in a liquid and send it through a tool called a circulation cytometer. As your blood cells travel through the lasers, they spread light in certain patterns that are discovered by the flow cytometer.
