Assessment of size and nucleo-cytoplasmic characteristics of the squamous cells of the corneal epithelium

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The aim was to objectively assess size, nucleus and nucleo-cytoplasmic ratio features of squamous cells from the corneal epithelium. The corneas of recent post-mortem sheep eyes were either glutaraldehyde-fixed for transmission electron microscopy or impression cytology samples taken, glutaraldehyde-fixed and stained with Giemsa. From the specimens for impression cytology, a representative region was photographed from 12 different samples taken from the central region and 16 different samples taken from mid-peripheral regions of the corneal epithelium. Images were subjected to morphometry after overlays were generated.
