Recent advances in laser microprobe mass analysis of inner ear tissue

Scanning Electron Microscopy (1): 393-406
Recent advances in laser microprobe mass analysis of inner ear tissue
Maintenance of ionic gradients within the various fluids compartments of the inner ear requires transport active cellular systems at different locations. LAMMA [laser microphobe mass analyzer] analysis is ideally suited for detection of ions in microquantity on cellular levels overcoming many technical difficulties. This paper summarizes the results of microprobe analysis obtained with LAMMA supplemented by X-ray microprobe adjacent to the endolymphatic space (a) in the cochlear duct, in the vestibular organ and in the endolymphatic sac. The possible role of inner ear and ocular melanin in the mechanisms of active ion transport is discussed.
