Rapid chemical dehydration of samples for electron microscopic examinations.


Acidified 2,2-dimethoxypropane was used to chemically dehydrate biologic tissues for examination in the electron microscope. The ultrastructural integrities of single-celled algae, plant tissues (cotyledon, root, leaf) and animal tissues (liver, pancreas, muscle, cartilage) were maintained. Our technique was simpler and quicker than physically exchanging… (More)
