Blood is made up of plasma and cells.

The different types of cells are broadly grouped into erythrocytes (red blood corpuscles), leucocytes (white blood corpuscles), and thrombocytes (platelets) with different functions.

The straw-coloured liquid in which all the cells float is plasma. Plasma is almost #95%# water and contains dissolved proteins, glucose, clotting factors, and dissolved carbon dioxide (#CO_2#).
