Abstract

The investigation of epithelial cells with a confocal fluorescence microscope is only useful as long as the three dimensional structure of the sample is preserved. For many reasons it is not guaranteed that this goal can be achieved with fixed specimens. In order to perform relevant biological experiments one must find ways avoiding the "loss of information".
