Arneth's classification of neutrophils

Arneth's classification of neutrophils

Etymology: Joseph Arneth, German physician, 1873-1953
a system, no longer used in the United States, expressed in chart form in which neutrophils are divided into five classes according to the number of segments of their nuclei and are further subdivided according to the shape of the nuclei. Immature neutrophils with a single-lobed nucleus are placed on the far left side of the chart; those with multilobed nuclei are placed on the far right side.
