A modified wire-loop method for quantitative electron microscopic radioautography
A simplified method of emulsion coating and development for quantitative electron microscopic radioautography without any special instrument is introduced.
Seven grids carrying ultrathin sections are attached to a glass block with double-coated Scotch tape. They are coated with a wire-loop, 2.5 cm in diameter. Ten glass blocks are then stuck on a slide, exposed, developed, fixed and stained simultaneously.
Employing this method, the emulsion coating and the following procedures are easily accomplished under an identical condition.
