Biomedical applications: Pitfalls in the practice


Journal Article

Most medical microprobe analysis is conducted on insoluble particulates such as asbestos fibers in lung tissue. It is necessary to flash-freeze in order to preserve the integrity of electrolyte distributions at the subcellular and cellular level. It is also important during a microprobe study to utilize several different controls. These controls help to exclude the possibility of a spurious contaminant present in that particular run of embedding medium or fixative.
