Paper Abstract

A recently developed multiple beam interference confocal microscopy and conventional confocal microscopic techniques were employed to obtain 3-D images and morphological details of chondrocytes obtained from a postmortem of 1 day old baby for the first time. Unprecedented images clearly showed that they were circular and internal structures were noticeably visible. The nucleus shows two or three nucleoids. Peripheral nuclear organelles were also perceptible. These techniques permit to examine with precision the thickness of the organelles.
