  • The suitability of silver nitrate as a stain for scanning electron microscopy was investigated. Accordingly en face preparations of arterial intima were impregnated with silver nitrate, fixed with formalin, and coated with platinum‐palladium alloy. In SEM images, the silver lines surrounding the endothelial cells, and the deposits on the intima appear as white lines or dots on a darker background. Similar results were noted for nitrocellulose‐embedded endothelium. Paraffin sections of kidney… CONTINUE READING
