Ultramicrotomy is a proven and universally accepted technique for sample preparation for TEM, SEM, AFM, etc. It permits the fine internal structures of samples to be visualized and analyzed at nanometer-scale resolution by producing ultrathin sample sections in a fast and clean manner. A key advantage of ultramicrotomy is the size and homogeneity of the electron-transparent area within the sections and the speed at which the sections are produced.
Cryoultramicrotomy allows the sectioning of vitrified biological samples, which are preserved at the atomic level and represent the actual structure at the moment of freezing. Ultrathin cryo-sections, e.g., Tokuyasu sections, provide excellent preservation of ultrastructure and antigenicity for follow-up immuno-labeling, as well as facilitating Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy (CLEM).
