Abstract

I HAVE investigated recently the effect of various fixation methods on mammalian skeletal muscle. For this purpose the biceps brachii muscle of the albino mouse was chosen because of its convenient size and the fact that it can be easily dissected out. All the mice used were females weighing about 34.5 gm., the biceps muscles were weighed in each case, and all were found to weigh about 0.0155 gm.
