About this book

There has been exponential growth in cryo-electron microscopy methods over the last twenty years. Using an accessible, consistent format to explain the material, Handbook of Cryopreparation Methods for Electron Microscopy presents the most sophisticated methods used in research laboratories. It describes the basic principles of freezing, cryo-ultramicrotomy, embedding at low temperatures and freeze-fracture. The book also explores applications such as electron crystallography, 2D/3D structure, tomography, and techniques for protein localization. Each chapter covers a specific method, including detailed protocols and numerous illustrations to clarify the techniques.


Cryo-Fixation Methods. Macromolecular Assemblies. Cryo-ultramicrotomy. Low-Temperature Embedding. Freeze-Fracture and Metal Shadowing. Immunolabeling, Electron Tomography.
