    CP microscopy work

    Here are a few attempts at examining some CPs under a confocal microscope. As firsts I can't complain though I wish I would have changed a few things now. The digestive gland at the very bottom of the first picture was deeper than the rest of the plane which resulted in the unfortunate large dark shadow at the bottom half of the page. However due to the nice deep red color of the gland the ones that did come out did so quite nicely.


    Would attempt some TEM/SEM work with these but the time requirement to do so just isn't feasible. However I will be doing further confocal work and plan on doing Drosera stalked and sessile glands next week, any other suggestions are welcome! (Before anyone suggests pollen, I don't have any on hand sry)

    Digestive glands of a VFT:

    Not CP related but a nice shot FWIW, Mitochondria in mouse kidney tissue viewed using a TEM, cristae can be clearly distinguished.



    Enjoy!

    Those are fantastic photos; thanks for sharing!

    What do TEM, SEM & confocal mean?


    Someday I'm going to get a microscope. I wish I can afford a trifocal, or even a bifocal, but that ain't gonna happen unless I win the lottery.

    I'm not sure about confocal, but SEM = scanning electron microscopy and TEM = transmission electron microscopy.
