A Modification to Facilitate Attachment of Large Object Tables to the Jung Tetrander I Microtome


312 STAIN TECHNOLOGY water drop on the slide. Each section is located in a definite area of the grid. The slide is dried for twelve hours at room temperature. After the water drops have evaporated, the sections adhere smoothly and evenly to the slide’s surface. Using our staining technique (0.1 % toluidine blue in Siirenson’s phosphate buffer pH 7.6 at room temperature for approximately one hour) the sections (Epon) do not become detached, although we observed that in a more alkaline staining solution they have a tendency to do so. After staining, preparation of the sections can be completed in the customary manner. Acknowledgement. This work was supported by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft-SFB 89 - Kardiologie - GGttingen.
