Document Summary

Blood smear: if you were to look under a microscope, you will see the blood being a type of connective tissue. They are a diverse heterogeneous group of tissues and one thing that unite them together as cells are that they are embedded in some kind of matrix. Like you see here, they are isolated not interacting with any other cells, but embedded in the matrix (white). In this case, the matrix material is the blood plasma. The different types of cells present in the blood: erythrocytes (rbc) they got this donut shape. They are the most dominant type of cell in the blood, and their function is to transport oxygen from lung to tissue. The second type of cells we have are leucocyte (wbc). The name comes from the idea that if we look at the blood smear, you will see they got no pigments whereas for rbc you will see red pigment.
