Re: size of kupffer cells

From:Paul Bradbury

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.
