    Composition of the blood The circulating blood is composed of  plasma   and  cells.    The cells are  red cells  (or erythrocytes),  white cells  (or leucocytes) and  platelets .  Blood cells can be identified in blood films  stained  with a mixture of basic and acidic  dyes.  Normal white cells are divided into  polymorphonuclear leucocytes  (or  granulocytes) and  mononuclear  cells.
