R.B.C. – The RBC is composed of a colorless envalop enclosing semiliquid material, 65 % water, and 35 % solids of which 33 % is Haemoglobin bound to 2 % stromal meshwork of protein and others.

W.B.C. – The WBC is an important variety of cells in the blood. It is known as Leucocytes. Leucocytes are rich in nucleoprotein and also contain lipids, glycogen, cholesterol, ascorbic acid, and a variety of enzymes, specially proteolytic.
