Figure 1

Survey on several transmission electron microscopy strategies. The figure provides help to chose a specific strategy for TEM preparation based on the scientific purpose of the study. It shows the crucial decisions in specimen preparation from the fixation level to the investigation at the TEM. Abbreviations: GA = glutaraldehyde; PFA = paraformaldehyde; CTEM = conventional TEM; EFTEM = energy-filtered TEM; ET = electron tomography.
