Method P.6664 right column 3rd paragraph: "For eukaryotic systems, a further complication is the possibility of significant variations between organelles. Wang et al. have recently reported the use of a surface plasmon resonance (SPR)-based electrochemical impedance microscope (EIM) that enables intracellular resistance levels to be measured at submicrometer resolution (primary source) in combination with sophisticated mathematical modeling, these measurements could be used to calculate intraorganelle, approximative conductivities and dielectric constants."
Comments P.6664 right column 3rd paragraph: "The authors obtained indicative values for intracellular dielectric constants in the range of ∼30 and ∼60 (primary source)."
