Haemocyte subpopulations from three bivalve species (the clams Ruditapes philippinarum and Mercenaria mercenaria and the oyster, Crassostrea virginica) were characterised using light-scatter flow cytometry and a standard set of methods. Two parameter (forward and side scatter) plots for the three species were very similar and resembled plots for mammalian white blood cells. Two haemocyte groups (granulocytes and agranulocytes) were found in both the haemolymph and the extrapallial fluid of the… CONTINUE READING
