||"ß-cell volume has been determined by a number of different
techniques, at both the light- and electron-microscopic levels."
specific gravity or density of the tissue is assumed to be 1
mg/mm^3 and the volume of a single ß-cell is 1,020µm^3 (1.02x10^-6 mm^3/cell), there are 9.8X10^5 cells per milligram of
