band cell

(redirected from Band cells)

band cell

any cell of the granulocytic (leukocytic) series that has a nucleus that could be described as a curved or coiled band, no matter how marked the indentation, if it does not completely segment the nucleus into lobes connected by a filament.

band neutrophil

The formal term (recommended by the Histology Subcommittee of the International Anatomical Nomenclature Committee) for the immature or band form of neutrophil is granulocytus neutrophilicus juvenilis; the descriptive term band neutrophil is popular with many experts.

In combination with NR Carrier Aggregation, spectrum sharing can typically double the coverage area of new 5G mid and high band cells, delivering hundreds of megabits per second indoors and at cell edge.
Marked neutrophilic leukocytosis with shift to left of reticulocytes (immature/band cells) was indicative of severe bacterial infection to uterus, which might be due to stimulation of bone marrow to release more number of immature or band cells into peripheral circulation in an attempt to overcome infection (Mojzisova et al., (2000) (Fig.
Laboratory investigations showed haemoglobin 5.7gm./dl; Total leukocyte count 614.8x10 9 /l, Myeloblast 65%, Promyelocytes 10%, Myelocytes 26%, Metamyelocytes 18%, Band cells 4%, Neutrophils 30% and Lymphocytes 7%: ESR 2mm, platelets 709x10 12 /L.
