Dear Histonneters, We have a student doing her PhD studying CYPRIDS. A Cyprid
is the free swimming stage of the Sea - Water Barnacle before it settles
permanently! Our student Marsha would like to look @ the lipid content/volume
& also the protein content/volume of individual Cyprids,ALSO looking @ the
nervous system Histologically to see if it changes morphologically as they
age/mature in the Cyprid well as the  newly settled Barnacle
stage. What fixative would be utilized & is it possible to demonstrate both
lipids & proteins with the same procedure/method etc.? Marsha has access to
a Confocal
Microscope & is hopeful that someone can suggest a method/s to look @ the
specimen under the Confocal to determine amounts of protein/Lipid ??) ANY
help/suggestions will be GREATLY appreciated.......................
Cheers, Bruce (& Marsha) in OZ.
