A cryoglue to mount vitreous biological specimens for cryoultramicrotomy at 110K.

Abstract

Mixtures of ethanol, 2-propanol and 2-butanol can be used as a cryoglue to mount vitrified biological specimens for ultrathin cryosectioning. Brought directly from room temperature to a cutting support at 140 K in the cold chamber of a cryoultramicrotome, these alcohols stiffen to a viscous and gluey consistency allowing the attachment or embedding of a… (More)
