The booklet goals to explain the microscopic characterization of the smooth topic within the mild of latest advances received within the technological know-how of microscopy recommendations like AFM; SEM; TEM and so on. It doesn't concentrate on the conventional details at the microscopy tools in addition to structures already found in diverse books, yet intends to reply to extra basic questions linked to commercially vital platforms through the use of new advances in microscopy. Such questions are regularly now not responded through different options. The contents of the publication additionally mirror this because the chapters usually are not in line with describing in simple terms fabric structures, yet are according to the answering the issues or questions bobbing up of their characterization. either qualitative in addition to quantitative research utilizing such microscopic ideas is mentioned. in addition, efforts were made to supply a broader succeed in as discussions on either polymers in addition to organic subject were integrated as various sections. this kind of textual content with finished assessment of many of the characterization chances utilizing microscopy tools can function a helpful reference for microscopy specialists in addition to non-experts alike

Freeze-substitution and freeze-drying (FD) are dehydration techniques by which the water is gently removed from frozen specimen. Both techniques can serve as a link between cryofixation and conventional thin sectioning at room temperature. They are, therefore, hybrid techniques combining the advantages of the low temperature and the room temperature specimen preparation [7]. For the routine ultrastructural investigation the freeze-substitution is now the most widely used procedure. With respect to the structural preservation freeze substitution are more obscure than ‘‘pure’’ cryotechniques, such as freeze-etching or cryosectioning.

9b) shows a slightly grey background without any significant structures inside. The membrane lipid bilayer becomes visible in TEM image (Fig. 9d) only when the sample was prepared according to OsO4 fixation protocol. As has been mentioned above, a biosample after the treatment with osmium tetroxide during 2 h at room temperature loses most of its internal proteins, including the membrane proteins. Therefore, heavy metal salts easily find access to the polar groups of the lipids and residual proteins to make them visible by TEM.
