Difference between Blood and Lymph
|1||Blood consists of plasma, erythrocytes, leukocytes, and platelets.||Lymph consists of plasma and leukocytes (lymphocytes most abundant).|
|2||Red in color due to the presence of hemoglobin in erythrocytes.||Colorless as hemoglobin is absent.|
|3||Bloods plasma has more proteins, calcium and phosphorus.||Lymph plasma has fewer proteins and less calcium and phosphorus.|
|4||It carries materials towards and away from the tissue, therefore, it acts as a “vehicle”.||It transfers materials from the blood to the body cells and vice-versa, therefore, it acts as a middle man.|
