PARAMETER TISSUE PROBE
NUMBER glomeruli PHYSICAL FRACTIONATOR*
NUMBER and VOLUME kidney cells e.g. those that make up glomeruli: endothelial, mesangial, and podocyte OPTICAL FRACTIONATOR* and NUCLEATOR
CONNECTIVITY capillary network CONNECTIVITY
VOLUME kidney region e.g. cortex and medulla CAVALIERI/POINT-COUNTING
PER CENT by VOLUME kidney component e.g. glomeruli or proximal convoluted tubules AREA FRACTION FRACTIONATOR
LENGTH kidney tubules or blood vessels SPACEBALLS
CROSS SECTIONAL AREA kidney tubules CAVALIERI/POINT-COUNTING
SURFACE kidney structures e.g. glomerular capillaries ISOTROPIC FAKIR
THICKNESS kidney structure e.g. glomerular basement membrane ORTHOGONAL INTERCEPTS

*use thick physical sections for the optical fractionator and thin optical sections for the physical fractionator; the so-called double-disector
