A platelet (or thrombocyte) is a figurative element of blood that is formed in the bone marrow and fragments into small elements. Platelets are therefore not complete cells, but only small fragments without a nucleus. Their lifespan is about 8-10 days, and they are broken down in the spleen. They are one of the essential components for blood clotting (or primary hemostasis).
