X-ray microanalysis is a useful technique to qualify and quantify basic elements in biological specimens. article reviews the principles and techniques for applying intermediate high voltage electron microscopy to X-ray microanalysis of various elements in biological specimens developed in our laboratory since the late 20th century. We first quantified the endproducts of histochemical reactions such as Ag in radioautographs, Ce in acid phosphatase reaction and Au in colloidal goldimmunostaining…

Quantitative elemental analysis on aluminum accumulation by HVTEM-EDX in liver tissues of mice orally administered with aluminum chloride
TLDR
It was demonstrated that hepatocyte lysosome ratio and macrophage count increased in liver tissues of treated mice during those short-term excessive Al administration periods, and it was also clarified that the concentrations of Al in both hepatocytes and Macrophages increased as observed by HVTEM-EDX.
Elemental Analysis of Aluminum Accumulations in the Livers, Kidneys and Brains of Mice Observed by HAADF-STEM-EDX
The elemental analysis on aluminum (Al) was carried out by high angle annular dark field (HAADF) scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) and energy dispersive X-ray microanalysis (EDX) on
Histochemistry, General and Special *
TLDR
The histochemical techniques have been well developed and systematized by the end of the 20 th century to demonstrate various components such as enzymes, proteins, nucleic acids, glucides, lipids, etc and should form a new field in medical sciences, which can be designated as "Special Histochemistry".

X-ray microanalysis of cerium in mouse spleen cells demonstrating acid phosphatase activity using high voltage electron microscope.
TLDR
Significant P/B ratio in X-ray microanalysis of biological specimens could be achieved by using a medium voltage transmission analytical electron microscope at accelerating voltage between 300 and 400 kV.
Detection of aluminium by energy dispersive X-ray microanalysis at high accelerating voltages with semi-thin sections of biological sample.
TLDR
Aluminium was detected in lysosomes of the three kinds of tissues with higher sensitivity by energy dispersive X-ray microanalysis by light microscopic observation and it was suggested that Al dissolved in acidic water was absorbed in the duodenum and accumulated in the liver and kidney.
X-Ray Microanalysis at High Accelerating Voltage Detecting Aluminum Accumulation in Mouse Kidney after Short-Term Aluminum Administration
TLDR
The EDX microanalysis was able to detect Al accumulated in the lysosomes and clarify the transitional changes of the quantities of Al detected during a short-term excessive Al administration to detect a correlation with the Al administration period.
Three-Dimensional and Four-Dimensional Observation of Histochemical and Cytochemical Specimens by High Voltage Electron Microscopy
TLDR
The results showed that the stereo-pair images obtained from thick specimens revealed 3-D ultrastructures and relationships of cells and tissues.
Stereo high-voltage electron microscopy of whole cells of the human diploid line, WI-38.
TLDR
The human diploid cell line, WI-38, has proven to be an especially good object for high-voltage electron microscopy using whole cells, and the approach combined with stereo-microscopy has extended the knowledge of cellular ultrastructure.
Three-dimensional high voltage electron microscopy of thick biological specimens
TLDR
The results show that whole mount cultured cells and thick sections stained with histochemical reactions reveal cell organelles corresponding to marker enzymes, such as G-6-Pase in endoplasmic reticulum, TPPase and ZIO in Golgi apparatus and cytochrome oxidase in mitochondria.

TLDR
It has been demonstrated by using this EPMA that 21 out of the 92 elements of the periodic table, once injected in a soluble form, were selectively concentrated within lysosomes of several types of mammalian cells.

TLDR
This work reported the ultrastructural localization of an antigen in skin processed by rapid freezing and freeze-substitution without chemical fixation, using a post-embedding method, which should be the first demonstration of immunostaining of rapidly frozen tissue processed without chemical fixatives.
