A Neutrophils dominate the normal adult peripheral blood and may be found in two forms: segmented neutrophils (1,800-7,800/pL) and band neutrophils (0-700/pL).
The presence of these thread-like filaments is the most significant feature of segmented neutrophils and is the basis for distinguishing a segmented neutrophil from a band.
