I remember it is also possible to monitor taxis on microscopy slides. The
paper of Howard Gest (Check pubmed PMID: 7710317) comes to mind. I guess
textbook by Gerhardt
(http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1555810489/qid=1028233911/sr=1-3/ref
=sr_1_3/103-5407546-8967058) would also have more protocols.
