An unbiased estimate of the membrane thickness distribution function is given for membranes which are modelled as planar sheets having random thicknesses when they are sampled by isotropic uniform random (IUR) plane sections. The estimate has a simple expression in terms of the intercept measurements. It simplifies the formula given in Mecke (1989).
