Preparation and preservation using
Analysis of liquids, low-melting point materials, soft film forming polymer emulsions,
immobilized diffusible compounds, and delicate biological structures. Samples are quench frozen
in liquid nitrogen slush and transferred to the SEM without exposure to air. Where necessary,
samples can be etched by sublimation, freeze fractured, and/or gold coated to provide surface conductivity.
Fee includes basic SEM charges and senior technical supervision.
