The prior decade has obvious a striking elevate within the use of electron microscopy as a researm software in biology and medication. therefore, so much institu­ tions of upper studying now boast a number of electron optical laboratories having quite a few degrees of class. education within the regimen use of elec­ tron optical gear and interpretation of effects is not any longer constrained to a couple prestigious facilities. however, temniques used by researm staff within the ultrastructural area became super varied and intricate. even though a good number of particularly very good volumes of electron microscopic temnique at the moment are devoted to the fundamental components to be had whim enable the amateur to procure an affordable creation to the sector, particularly few books were dedicated to a dialogue of extra advert­ vanced temnical facets of the artwork. It used to be with this view that the current quantity was once conceived as a convenient reference for staff already having a few historical past within the box, as a knowledge resource for these wishing to shift efforts into extra promising temniques, or to be used as a sophisticated direction or seminar consultant. material has been mosen really at the foundation of pertinence to offer researm actions in organic electron microscopy and emphasis has been given these components whim look destined to drastically extend in valuable­ ness within the close to future.

Exotic Embedding Materials The literature records a modest amount of effort to examine some new embedding materials, or new variations on older themes. 1. Hydrophilic Gels FERNANDEZ-MoRAN and FINEAN (1957) and GILEV (1958) embedded osmium-fixed tissue in concentrated solutions of gelatin, permitted them to harden by drying and then were able to section the blocks thin enough to examine them in the electron microscope. This procedure had the obvious advantage of dehydration and embedding in a hydrophilic, polymeric substance which should have very poor, if any, solvent-like properties.

Diglycidyl ether, however, was not available commercially, and correspondence with Shell in 1967 revealed that they no longer had diglycidyl ether under development, principally because of its high toxicity. 02 Viscosities in centipoises at 25°C and densities for several complete resin systems (containing hardener and accelerator and ready for embedding). These resins are between 1 and 2 orders of magnitude less viscous than resins listed in Table 1. From SZUBINSKA and LUFT, 1973. , 1951; SZUBINSKA and LUFT, 1973).
