Untersuchungen über den Bau der Cyanophyceen und Bakterien

Nature volume 57, page 29 | Download Citation



THIS little volume is very full of information on methods of fixing and staining, and on the results of high power observations of these minute organisms. Fischer's principal conclusions are that staining depends on physical and not chemical properties of the dyes and cell-substances, and consequently there are no such things as nuclear stains.
