Microprobes have been used for biological research to an extent which may surprise this audience; it certainly surprised the speaker when he compiled a bibliography. The number of publications amounted to 82. Furthermore, most of the papers now report actual biological research instead of the evaluation of possibilities which prevailed in the early days.

    We must thank our colleague A. Boyde for the preparation of the tissue sections used for Fig. 5, and we must thank the staff at the Tube Investments laboratory, in particular P. Duncumb, C. J. Cooke, and P. Hunneyball, for the use of their electron microscope-microprobe, the original “Emma”, to obtain the data of Fig. 6.Google Scholar
