Scanning electron microscopy of giemsa-stained chromosomes and surface-spread chromosomes

  title={Scanning electron microscopy of giemsa-stained chromosomes and surface-spread chromosomes},
  author={Kazuhiko R. Utsumi},
Giemsa-stained chromosomes as prepared for light microscopy, and including G-banded, C-banded, and FPG-stained chromosomes, were examined by scanning electron microscopy. Although suitable for light microscopy, these chromosomes were too flat for a close examination of their fine structure by scanning electron microscopy. The surface of Giemsa-positive regions was rough and bright, whereas that of unstained or poorly stained regions was smoother and less bright. Giemsa-staining, therefore… CONTINUE READING
