Re: size of kupffer cells
I can't find any reference to the size of Kuppfer cells either, but there
are always red cells present in any sections of liver. Red cells have an
average cell diameter of approximately 7 microns, so take it from there.
There may be some shrinkage artefact to consider, but the Kuppfer cells will
probably shrink at the same rate as the red cells, so the built-in 7 micron
scale will still be pretty accurate.
