Thus, the aberrations in our data were probably to do human error in counting, or chance. 3.) The erythroblast was the most common cell type seen in the bone. This is because erythroblasts eventually mature into erythrocytes, which have the highest oxygen carrying capacity. 4.) 4 megakaryocytes were visualized in the second field. They were very large in size, contained a fragmented nucleus, and stained palely pink with the eosin. 5.) We were able to visualize mostly erythroblasts and a few myelocytes. These two were easy to distinguish from one another in that the erythroblasts did not have nuclei. Furthermore, the myelocytes were larger in size and appeared to have a phagocytic form to them....
