With the advent of modern precision high speed microdensitometers operating under control of general purpose ii-computers, vast areas of research have suddenly beco e available which, until only recently, were largely inaccessible due simply to the constraint of limited available time. The intent of this paper is to present a general discussion of a number of applications for which such a system (one which we are currently using) is suited. Neither is the list of applications exhaustive, nor is our system the last word in this rapidly developing technology. Even so, with consideration of these finite limitations the research capabilities of such a system seem all the more impressive.
