Contrast Techniques in Light Microscopy

S. Bradbury and P.J. Evennett
June 15, 1996

Contrast in an image is essential to distinguish features from one another and from the background. This practical handbook describes the ways in which light interacts with the specimen in the microscope and the manner in which this is used to generate co...

Handbook of Nonmedical Applications of Liposomes, Vol IV From Gene Delivery and Diagnosis to Ecology

Danilo D. Lasic, Yechezkel Barenholz
January 09, 1996

Liposomes have become an important model in fundamental biomembrane research, including biophysical, biochemical, and cell biological studies of membranes and cell function.
