Under a magnification of 1125X, this photomicrograph of a specimen consisting of mucus strands, revealed the presence of a pus cell, or a white blood cell (WBC), also known as a leukocyte, which displayed what is called a ring nucleus. Pus is composed of WBCs, necrotic cellular debris, and thin, watery serous fluid. If created in response to a pathogenic organism, or a foreign substance, evidence of those constituents would also be visible.
