Possibly the wee creatures peopling the corpuscles of our own blood are overcome with the proper emotion when contemplating the unthinkable distance from one of these to another.
It is distinguished from the corpuscle, also the ultimate, indivisible unit of matter, by a closer resemblance to the atom, also the ultimate, indivisible unit of matter.
"Well, these stars, or rather corpuscles, only shine when they are heated by gliding over the atmospheric layers.
So is the microscopic examination for blood corpuscles. The latter is valueless if the stains are a few hours old.
Samples for the analyses of blood corpuscles were transferred to the laboratory and mixed using a roller mixer (1580R-Multi-purpose Centrifuge, LABOGENE, Bjarkesvej, Denmark).
One set of claims Anstey takes to task are those that construe Locke's Essay as aiming primarily to defend mechanistic or corpuscularian metaphysics, the first being views that explain matter by analogy to the functioning of machines and the second being those that do so by appeal to imperceptible corpuscles similar to what we now call atoms.
Internally, two regions are distinguished in the renal parenchyma: the cortex (out region) and the medulla (inner region), with innumerable tubules and renal corpuscles (nephrons).
At the end of centrifugation, three layers were seen, the top layer containing supernatant serum, the fibrin clot at the middle layer, and the bottom layer containing the red blood corpuscles [Figure 2].
On histologic examination of the mass, small, well-differentiated lymphocytes were observed mixed with neoplastic reticular cells and Hassall's corpuscles. On immunohistochemical analysis, the cytoplasm of 80% of the reticular cells showed abundant detectable brown antigen binding with pancytokeratin staining, and most lymphoid cells showed detectable antigen in the cytoplasm by using CD3 antibodies.
In an advanced development of E-RLO growth, the presence of many corpuscles (smaller than granules) inside the parasitophorous vacuoles (moderately eosinophilic) and few colonies were observed (Fig.
In sections on polymers, life chemistry, and applied sciences they discuss such topics as theoretical studies on the molecular design of a novel electrically conducting polymer using a genetic algorithm, reflections of artemisinin: a proposed molecular mechanism of bioactivity and resistance, nickel stearate hydrosols for hydrophobic cellulose, a mathematical model of the centrifugal sedimentation of corpuscles in a cyclonic deduster, and the informatics approach and its impact on bioscience: making sense of innovation.
The other theories explaining the presence of ectopic thymic tissue in the neck include failure of the thymic tissue to descend, persistence of thymopharyngeal duct and presence of degenerating Hassell's corpuscles.2,3
