The earlier decade has obvious a impressive raise within the use of electron microscopy as a researm device in biology and drugs. hence, so much institu­ tions of upper studying now boast numerous electron optical laboratories having a variety of degrees of class. education within the regimen use of elec­ tron optical apparatus and interpretation of effects isn't any longer constrained to some prestigious facilities. nevertheless, temniques used by researm staff within the ultrastructural area became super varied and complicated. even though lots of relatively first-class volumes of electron microscopic temnique at the moment are devoted to the fundamental components on hand whim let the beginner to procure an affordable advent to the sphere, fairly few books were dedicated to a dialogue of extra advert­ vanced temnical elements of the artwork. It used to be with this view that the current quantity used to be conceived as a convenient reference for employees already having a few heritage within the box, as a knowledge resource for these wishing to shift efforts into extra promising temniques, or to be used as a complicated direction or seminar consultant. subject material has been mosen fairly at the foundation of pertinence to offer researm actions in organic electron microscopy and emphasis has been given these parts whim appear destined to drastically extend in important­ ness within the close to future.

DANIEL C. PEASE A. Introduction A practical, working histologist or cytologist in a sense requires understanding of what he is doing at two different levels. For convenience and general productivity he knows very well he has to "fix" tissues and cells as a first preparative step. However, he is quite aware that this is basically a crime against nature, and no matter how sophisticated the fixation procedure may be, there surely are always lingering doubts as to how closely the final image resembles the living object.

A second type of artifact expresses itself simply as shrinkage, even in those areas optimally preserved (Fig. 1). This is not generally very noticeable except in nuclear profiles. These become scalloped rather than remaining circular. Scalloping can also occur around inclusions such as secretory granules, and irregularities in the profiles of some large mitochondria such as occur in the cortex of the kidney may be evident. What appear to be angular displacements of endoplasmic reticulum also occur.
