      The bone cells or osteocytes are embedded in a celcified matrix, right?…

      But Why is it that the bone prepared by the grinding method will not show the osteocytes but only the cavities or lacunae.?

      * i dont know what the grinding method is.

      quote deafear30:

      Then it wuld be a good idea to search about that. Since I suspect this question come from homework/lab, you probably have to read the texte that describe the grinding method.

      Just a little clue:

      (1) For the best view of bone structure (and also another tissues), we must provide a single layer of those tissues preparation.

      (2) Preserved histological preparation use chemicals that’s toxic to some cells.

      Now, dig for your own answer 😉

      oh i think i got it already!! …

      because of how they cut/slice (watever it is they do) the specimen? ..

      is that why there’s a thing seen "cross-section" on the slides?

      Cell’s membranes are dissolved when organic and mineral solvents are used.
