Title: The Role of Electron Microscopy in the Study of Calf Scours
Author: Peterson, Allan C.; Freeman, Thomas P.
Description: Neonatal calf diarrhea, referred to as calf scours, has a complex pathophysiology. This serious infection is the product of small intestine, which cause a decrease in the absorption or produce a complete breakdown of the epithelial cells. causes of this disease are bacteria, viruses or protozoa. Environmental factors and management practices both play an important role in the occurrence of calf scours. Electron microscopy is a useful tool in the study of calf scours due to it's ability to provide a rapid assessment of the microbes present. Electron microscopy permits the identification of many different types of organisms in a single sample preparation. Data may be obtained without the need of tissue samples or of sacrificing the animal. The process of electron microscopy is given. electron microscopy is a basic tool for the determination of the effects of this disease on a cellular level.
