Biological Electron Microscopy: Theory, Techniques, and by Michael J. Dykstra, Laura E. Reuss

By Michael J. Dykstra, Laura E. Reuss

This e-book covers traditional gentle microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, intermediate and excessive voltage transmission electron microscopy, electronic imaging and telemedicine, cryotechniques, fixation protocols, cytochemistry and immunocytochemistry, images and photomicroscopy. The textual content is geared up with a survey of every topic, and a recommendations part, the place applicable, with tried-and-true equipment that would produce publishable effects. the idea at the back of a variety of technical methods is equipped to aid the reader troubleshoot difficulties. whereas the recommendations sections aren't intended to be encyclopaedic, they need to function a commonly appropriate start line for quite a few techniques to cytological learn. Biological Electron Microscopy is designed for an introductory one-semester direction in organic electron microscopy and gives an creation to all of the significant technical ways for pattern coaching and instrumentation usage to respond to cytological questions.

Sample text

Most aldehyde fixatives diluted to working strength and appropriately buffered for use are stable for at least a year at 4°C. Aqueous osmium stocks are stable for months at the same temperature, provided that no dirt, buffer, or other reactive substances have been introduced and that they are stored in the dark. , 1987). Glauert (1975) suggested, " ... " He gives no information concerning the outcome of long storage in fixatives but does say that storage of aldehyde-fixed samples in buffer" ...

Some workers recommend 10% buffered acrolein, but others have used 3-4% with success. Chapter 1 16 Temperatures. Fixation at 4°C or at room temperature gives good results. Rate of Penetration. Penetration of about 1 mmlhr has been reported for rat kidney tissue. This fixative has been recommended for large samples because of its excellent penetration capabilities. Duration. Due to its rapid rate of penetration, I hr at room temperature is quite adequate for the sample sizes normally encountered in an electron microscopy laboratory.

Other workers insist that samples should never be stored in aldehydes because excessive protein precipitation will take place over time. Figures 11 and 12 compare a rat kidney sample 22 Chapter 1 Figure 11. Distal convoluted tubule of a rat kidney fixed with 4F: 1G and processed on the same day in 1985. 10,769 X. fixed and processed to resin on the same day in 1985 to a piece of the same sample of rat kidney stored in 4F: 1G fixative at 4°C until final processing to resin in 2002. You will note that they are essentially indistinguishable and that long-term storage in aldehyde fixative produced a good publishable image.
