This book presents the newest technology in electron microscopy. It comprises two major areas of electron microscopy - transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The volume provides clear, concise instructions on processing biological specimens and includes discussion on the underlying principles of the majority of the processes presented. A notes section enables efficient adaptation and troubleshooting of protocols.show more
