Morphological studies of cells and tissues

Morphological analysis of cultures’ and tissues’ cell surfaces. The samples are prepared by chemical methods (fixation, postfixation, dehydration and finally dried by CO2 critical point method), placed on the stubs (specimen mounts) and gold-coated for SEM observation. In the case of tough or low water content samples, they can be directly coated for the SEM observation.
