1. Ocular micrometer calibrated with a stage micrometer. With the 10X objective, the tenth line on the ocular micrometer is in line with the eleventh line on the stage micrometer. Since the lines on the stage micrometer are 10 µm apart, (111/10) X 10 = 11 µm per ocular scale division.

There is increasing evidence showing that microbes can influence plant-insect interactions. In addition, various studies have shown that aboveground pathogens can alter the interactions between plants and insects. However, little is known about the role of soil-borne pathogens in plant-insect interactions. It is also not known how environmental con...

Deficiency of a-galactosidase A (a-GAL) causes Fabry disease (FD), an X-linked storage disease of the glycosphingolipid globtriaosylcerammide (Gb3) in lysosomes of various cells and elevated plasma globotriaosylsphingosine (Lyso-Gb3) toxic for podocytes and nociceptive neurons. Enzyme replacement therapy is used to treat the disease, but clinical e...

... However, it is not always easy handling these organisms for the previous especial process that they require due to the small size of the specimens and they are often lost. For this reason, a container to introduce these specimens is necessary to promote their manipulation , especially in the dehydration phase prior to the specimens' covering with gold and SEM observation (see, e.g., Annels, 1985; Eisenback, 1985 Eisenback, , 1986 Eisenback, , 2003 Green et al., 1975; Higgins and Thiel, 1988 ; McLure and Stowell, 1978; Stone and Green, 1971 ). Some laboratory supply and distribution companies commercialize some containers (e.g., microporous specimen capsules) to introduce the samples but they are either too big in size or excessively expensive. ...

An easy and low-cost method to elaborate a container to dehydrate nematodes and other meiofauna in order to process them for scanning electron microscopy (SEM) is presented. Illustrations of its elaboration, step by step, are included. In addition, a brief methodology to process meiofauna, especially nematodes and kinorhynchs, and illustrations are provided. With this methodology it is possible to easily introduce the specimens, to lock them in a closed chamber allowing the infiltration of fluids and gases (ethanol, acetone, carbon dioxide) but avoiding losing the specimens. After using this meiofauna basket for SEM the results are efficient. Examples of nematode and kinorhynch SEM pictures obtained using this methodology are also included. Microsc. Res.
