A band cell (also called band neutrophil or stab cell) is a cell undergoing granulopoiesis, derived from a metamyelocyte, and leading to a mature granulocyte.

It is characterized by having a nucleus which is curved, but not lobar.[1]

Often the term "band cell" implies a neutrophilic lineage. However, the term is not used only with neutrophils.[2]

A count of band neutrophils is used to measure inflammation. An excess is called bandemia.
