PLC contrast Leica EM Stain

Preparation of the sample using the following protocol:

  • Classic-Glutaraldehyde Fixation PFA, Osmium, Epon
  • Ultrafine Cup - contrast Uranyless Lead -Citrate

Chantal Cazevieille CRIC / IURC INSERM Montpellier tested aqueous UranyLess in the Leica brand grid contrast controller on different tissues, Drosophila heart atrium, retina, cochlea and ileum (Gut). The tissues were fixed according to the standard protocol 2.5% Glutaraldehyde in PHEM buffer, the post fixation in 0.5% osmium in 0.8% potassium ferrocyanide in RT for 2 hours. The sections are collected on single-hole or 200 mesh grids.

The treatment of the grids is UranyLess 7mn lead citrate followed 7 minutes.

We present here some images made by Hitachi transmission electron microscope with a digital camera AMT.

You will notice that the combined action of potassium ferrocyanide and UranyLess reveal a marked way the cyto-membranes in the ileum.

Polymersomes

UranyLess was tested in comparison with uranyl acetate, which is at acidic pH 4 (seems to disrupt the organization of the molecular structure) in compraison also the comments by the technique Cryo SEM (scanning electron microscopy).

The chemical structure is organized as follows:
