Abstract

Summary: A method is described in which identical groups of micro-organisms are viewed first in the light microscope and then in the electron microscope. A direct comparison was made between electron micrographs and preparations stained with specific metachromatic, chromatinic and mitochondrial stains. In a study of the electron-opaque granules of the mycobacteria it was shown that they contain metaphosphates and show metachromasia. They are situated between the chromatinic bodies and cannot be identified with mitochondria.
