THE NUMBER-WEIGHTED VOLUME OF A CELL ESTIMATED WITH THE NUCLEATOR PROBE


Section thickness required: thick sections if using a disector for number weighted sampling

Orientation of tissue required: isotropic or vertical sections

The optical disector is used to pick the cell without bias in a number weighted manner.

The example above is from an isotropic section.

This example is from a vertical section, the vertical direction (black arrow) must be indicated before the nucleator rays are placed.
