The nuclear chromatin is coarser than that observed in myeloblasts, but it is relatively faintly stained and lacks a well defined membrane.
The nucleus is fairly regular in contour (not indented), and seems to be 'buried' beneath the numerous cytoplasmic granules. (If the nucleus were indented, it would likely be a metamyelocyte.)
Myeloblasts or blasts are new, immature blood cells developed in the bone marrow that are the precursors of myelocytes.
There is an internationally agreed method of counting blasts, with results from M1 upwards.
