A highly efficient method for staining ultrathin sections
- 35 Downloads
A simple and efficient staining method to handle simultaneously thirty (or even more) electron microscope grids with ultrathin sections is described. The device applied is easily constructed from inexpensive and readily available materials but can bring easily high quality staining results, and the amount of stain and washing water required is very small.
