    I see a monocyte, 2 neutrophils (or or those eos?), platelets, and the red cells seem a little thick on that part of the slide...

    Very good. 2 neuts. It is pretty hard to get a picture like that with an i phone. The light has to line up just right.

    Have not done smears or looked at them in years (15 years ago in med school to be exact)!

    You a lab tech, researcher, grad student, hematologist, or vampire?

    Check out the cytoplasm of the wbc in the lower left!

    Are the other two eosinophils? Can't tell for sure but the cytoplasm has a pinkish tint, can't see if it is granulated or not.

    What species?

    [​IMG] That was a human sample. I am a Med Tech.
    Sometime with the hours I work, I feel like a vampire. [​IMG]
    Yep. A co-worker showed me how to get those photos.
    It takes a steady hand and a lot of practice.
