Histotechnik: Praxislehrbuch für die Biomedizinische Analytik

Dieses einmalige Buch zur Histotechnik stellt die unterschiedlichen Techniken, die in einem histologischen exertions angewandt werden, umfassend vor. Diese zweite überarbeitete und aktualisierte Ausgabe wurde um Techniken ergänzt, die in den letzten Jahren entwickelt wurden. So finden sich neben Basisthemen wie Fixierung, Gewebe-Processing und Färbung, die Grundlagen der Immunhistochemie und in-situ-Hybridisierung sowie aktuelle Kapitel zur Molekularpathologie.

Holographic Sensors

This thesis provides a theoretical and experimental process for the fast fabrication, optimization and checking out of holographic sensors for the quantification of pH, natural solvents, steel cations, and glucose in options. constructing non-invasive and reusable diagnostics sensors that may be simply synthetic will aid the tracking of high-risk participants in any scientific or point-of-care environment.

Gas-regulating pressure gauges can be fitted to autoclaves, and these automatically reduce the gas supply when the required pressure is reached. Regulators for oil, steam and electrically-heated autoclaves are also available. Table of pressures The pressure gauge on the autoclave registers the internal pressure, and is calibrated in pounds per square inch; zero on the gauge corresponds to the normal atmospheric pressure of 20 AUTOCLAVES 15 lb. per square inch. Thus, a reading of 15 lb. pressure per square inch on the gauge is really equivalent to 30 lb.

The optical system consists essentially of a condenser, an objective and an eye-piece (Fig. 35). Rays from a light source are reflected by the mirror (plane surface) into the sub-stage condenser, which brings them to a common focus on the object, for example, blood film. The concave mirror should only be used in the absence of a con­ denser. Having illuminated the object, light rays pass through the objective, and produce the primary image in the plane of the eye-piece diaphragm. The eye-lens magnifies the image and brings it into focus on the retina of the eye.
