The nucleus of this monocyte is slighly indented but is also off to one side of the cell which is another typical characteristic of a monocyte.
Note the strongly indented nucleus that is characteristic of some monocytes - this nucleus has a "kidney bean" shape.
Mature Neutrophil: nucleus: 4-5 lobes; cytoplasm: "neutral" stained granules; size: larger than RBC.
Eosinophil: nucleus: bilobed; cytoplasm: filled with small eosinophilic or deep red staining granules that often consume the cytoplasm; size: much larger than RBC.
Note that this lymphocyte is quite large in comparison to others (has larger volume of cytoplasm).
Basophil: nucleus: bilobed; cytoplasm: large granules that stain "basophilic" or blue/purple-note that the granules do not completely consume the cytoplasm; size: much larger than RBC
This appears to be the only basophil in this slide; however, you should look for basophils on your other peripheral blood smear slides.
