The Platelet Populations

  • H. Vainer
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 28)


Many information concerning the morphological heterogeneity of the circulating platelets have been accumulated in recent years. The electron microscopic investigations of platelet ultrastructure have added valuable information (2, 21, 59) to those previously obtained by optical (6l) and phase contrast microscopy (46).
