No no stop! Dont try the transformer oil on the gun part. Transformer oil eats plastics and rubbers. Been there done that and paid the price. If you want to use any oils in the gun part of a EM use any of the silicone oils from dow corning. 702 or 705. that works just as well. What we use is the insulating epoxy they use for electrical cables. You can buy it from your local electrician shop. It comes in a packet with two sections. simply mix the two halfs, pour into the gun HT cable connection area, after repair, and it's fine. Much cheaper, less messy and safer.

Hi Andy

To save writing out all the options please take a look at our web site HINTS
and TIPS to check where your problem is,
is it the gun, gun chamber, cable or high voltage tank? Do not consider
that the only problem is likely to be the insulation of the gun. Chamber
cleanliness, vacuum level etc all play a part in high voltage breakdown a
feature that will result in beam instability.

But is it beam instability due to the gun (emission meter variations,
virtual source fluttering) or due to contamination in the condenser system
illumination flutter or movement)?

Hope this helps?

Dear Members
I am trying to accumulate literature sources that explain how best
to prepare insect specimens for sectioning so that the medium adheres well
and such that the knife doesn't 'catch' the specimen and 'drag' it out of
the medium. I would like to start with semi-thin sections of wings, and
then ultra thin for TEM. If there are any 'inside' tricjs that are
unpublished or otherwise unlikely to be encountered, I would be grateful.
Thanks
Ian

Dear Ian,
For LM use London Resin and try to match the hardness of the resin to
the tissue eg use the hardest grade for highly sclerotised beetle
cuticle and the medium grade for most cuticles. Tricks like orienting
the block so the knife cuts the cuticle first then cuts through the
underlying tissue will help but the hydrophobic epicuticle of some
insects will never bond to the resin when using standard
glutaraldehyde/osmium fixations. Yell if you want more detail.
Cheers,

First the flame: why assume we only like looking at little itty bitty
things?

On to real comments: Actually, I like looking at anything (size doesn't
count) and I like making cool and/or pretty pictures and I like math puzzles.

Being a microscopist fulfills all of these and pays my bills. To support
my job and my interests, to have access to the cool materials and
technologies that keep me fascinated, I need to be concerned with the
latest multi-probe cutting edge technologies, running a multi-user
facility, having a
purchasing department, federal grants, personnel and a job. Such is reality.

The conclusion is:
We should be discussing both the microscopies (cool pictures and how to
make them regardless whether they are snowflakes for the elementary
classroom or biological processes to understand cutting edge protein
interactions) and the processes for supporting the microscopies (e.g.
federal grants vs. commercial).

I've been subscribed here for years. It seems to me this listserv is doing
exactly what I describe/prescribe. Do we really need to discuss this more?

Subject: [Microscopy] Osmium vapors

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html

Question to the list:

Our local safety inspector is concerned about the appearance
of the fridge where we stock our solution of osmium. As you
can expect the white interior of the fridge has turned grey
with vapors of osmium over the years. Although we are
taking every precautions to avoid leakage of osmium
vapor from its container, this is a problem that I have
observed in every EM lab that I have worked in. Does
someone on the list have a method to store osmium in such
a way as to avoid any escape of vapor? Also, is there
something we could put into fridge that would trap osmium
vapors as they leak out? Thanks for your advise.

Question to the list:

Our local safety inspector is concerned about the appearance
of the fridge where we stock our solution of osmium. As you
can expect the white interior of the fridge has turned grey
with vapors of osmium over the years. Although we are
taking every precautions to avoid leakage of osmium
vapor from its container, this is a problem that I have
observed in every EM lab that I have worked in. Does
someone on the list have a method to store osmium in such
a way as to avoid any escape of vapor? Also, is there
something we could put into fridge that would trap osmium
vapors as they leak out? Thanks for your advise.

We store our osmium in a secondary container...a large poly pro bottle
(capped) and then we bag that container in a plastic Ziploc. It helps a
bit.

When OsO4 came in metal cans, I found by placing the working solution in a
Wheaton dropper bottle, wrap the bulb with Parafilm, place the bottle in the
can, close the lid, wrap the lid with electrician tape, and place the can in
a plastic Ziplock bag worked great. You could essentially use any clean
glass container, not just a Wheaton bottle.

After 20 years of working with OsO4, the inside of the refrigerator was
pristine. It requires diligence to unwrap and wrap the container, but it
worked.

A short-cut to the above mentioned technique, was to use a clean pint paint,
place the Wheaton bottle in the can and push the lid down tight, then place
the entire can in a Ziplock bag.

Regards,
Ken

We use Osmium in our lab and keep it in the refrigerator.
We keep it in a glass bottle and cover the lid with
parafilm. Then we put that bottle in another bottle with a
screw top and wrap the bottle in foil. It works great, our
refrigerator doesn't have and black residue, just the two
bottles.

Subject: [Microscopy] Re: Osmium vapors

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html

Working with undergraduates in a small (yet multiuser) lab, I have had
concerns about handling and storing osmium tetroxide for years. My
solution (which may not be practical for everyone) is that only sealed
ampoules are stored in the fridge (in their original shipping can and
packing materials). Vials are opened one at a time, the solutions are
mixed and used, tissues are exposed, left-over supplies are stored, and
waste is kept ONLY in the fume hood. In other words, opened supplies of
osmium never leave the fume hood (until disposal as toxic waste). If a
cold solution is needed, and ice bath can be used. We mix just about
enough for each procedure, and the unused left-over Os04 working
solution is kept in a small glass jar in the hood for the next
procedure. So we have no blackened refrigerator surfaces and no Os04
fumes accumulating in the fridge (or escaping into the room). It seems
to me that this approach could be expanded for a larger lab.

Subject: [Microscopy] Osmium vapors

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html

The simplest solution to this problem is not to keep your osmium in the
refrigerator. I keep mine in a glass Schott bottle with plastic cap which
is then stored within a plastic container in the fume hood. I am not sure
if light effects the osmium but to be sure, I wrap the plastic container in
aluminum foil. There is leakage from the glass bottle because over time,
the inside of the plastic container goes black. Anything that leaks past
the secondary container goes up the fume hood. Once every year or two, I
splurge and replace the bottle and container. I don't experience
"pre-mature" darkening of my 2% osmium stock which typically lasts about
2-3 months before I use it all up. Tom Phillips

NA is 0.5 of AA. Or more correctly NA = n(sine of (AA/2)). The notation n
is the refractive index between your lens and the glass slide or cover
slip, usually air n=1.0000. This isn't very helpful is it? AA or angular
aperture is a measure of the angle which describes the largest come of
light your objective will accept or your condenser will produce.
Resolution depends (simple theory) capturing as many of the defracted rays
from a sample as possible. The bigger the cone the more rays you capture
and the more resolution you have and the more you can magnify the sample.

Optics meant to be used in air always have an NA less than 1. Those using
oil, glycine or water have a NA greater than one. Condensers typically
have a higher NA than your assortment of objectives because they have to
accommodate many objectives. You reduce the NA of a condenser by closing
the condenser iris down. If you have the correct illumination set up you
can remove an eyepiece and watch the condenser iris close in the back focal
plane of the objective. Most of us close it a little past the edge of the
objective back focal plane 'cause we like it contrasty.


So your condenser is an meant to use in air while your objective is an oil
emersion. Never, never, say it with me, never put beans in your nose or
oil on a condenser with an NA of 0.9.

The best resolution you can get with your system is to oil the objective to
the slide and use the condenser in air. Frankly, it's just OK that way and
in my opinion it's oil immersion is never worth the work (OK you can flame
me now...) You need to oil both the condenser and objective to the slide
(assuming you have the right thickness slide, cover slip and your sample
has sufficient contrast by staining or difference in refractive index) to
get the most out of your optical system. I'm a microscopist cause I'm a
big sloppy guy and this is all too much trouble for me.

Sound like a homework question, so good luck!!!!

Dear Sophia,

In air a na of .9 is all that is possible with out oiling the
condenser to the slide. Condensers made with .9 na make better
images with out oil than 1.2 na to 1.4 na oil immersion
condensers with out oil. Also simple Abby condensers have a good
deal of chromic aberration at wide apertures.

The combination of those and the fact that most users don't take
the time to oil the condenser to the bottom of the slide
resulted in many microscope makers using .9 na condensers. For a
in depth discussion of the problems of large na condenser and
other things see Ted Clark's piece
http://www.modernmicroscopy.com/main.asp?article=53 in Modern
Microscopy. Other work on lighting by Ted Clarke is referenced
at http://www.couger.com/microscope/Ted-Clarke/

You asked a good questioning about the aperture of the
condenser. To get the full performance form an objective the
condenser and light train need to be the same quality and na as
the objective. That is usually only a real consideration for
study at high resolution and high resolution microphotography.
The limiting factor in any optic system is its weakest link. In
micosopes this often the lighting and/or condeser.

The numerical aperture is a rating for how much light comes through. A
variety of design factors that I can't explain affect the value. An
excellent source of information for your class is available on the Olympus
site. I've pasted the address of the page discussing objectives and N.A.
below. From there you can navigate throughout their entire primer.

http://olympusmicro.com/primer/anatomy/objectives.html

I don't have any connection to Olympus and other manufacturers may also have
excellent technical information up on the web. I suggested this site
because I found it to be very well organized, illustrated, and easy to
understand. Aside from the liberal use of the "Olympus" label, the
discussions are based on science, not a sales pitch. I hope this helps.

Dear Veselin,

The numerical aperture is the light collecting ability of a specific piece of optics. It depends on two factors: half the actual collecting angle and the refractive index of the immersion fluid. The equation is:
NA=n x sin a where n = ri of the immersion fluid (air is 1.00, oil is 1.5212, water is 1.33, for example) and " a" is the half angle.

Your question is an interesting one for several reasons.

First, both the NA of the condenser and the NA of the objective contribute to resolution: (Equations are difficult to send by email, but here is the basic equation:)
R = [1.2 L]/[NAo + NAc] where 1.2 is a shape factor (Bessel function) reflecting the round apertures we use in the microscope, "L" is the wavelength of light (you can use 500nm or 0.500microns as an average), and NAo = NA objective; NAc = NA condenser.

Interestingly, this equation is related to not only the ability to resolve spacing (R is actually the smallest distance between two objects which still permits them to be imaged as 2 separate entities), it also has impact on edge fidelity. As a result, higher NA optics (both objective and condenser) not only improve your ability to resolve fine detail, they also produce crisper, sharper edges.

Secondly, the NA's written on your glassware are only the general operating specs. If you close down the iris in the condenser, you limit the NA of the condenser. Since your condenser has a maximum NA of 0.9,it is not meant to be used with oil. On the other hand, your objective NA indicates that, for best imaging, a drop of the appropriate immersion oil should be placed between it and the top of your sample. If you don't follow this procedure, your images will not only lack clarity (immersion oil is considered to be an important optical component of the system), your objective will only operate with a "working NA" of approximately 0.9.

Finally, your question is very appropriate because, for optimum resolution, the NA of the condenser should match or exceed the NA of your objective. Your condenser does not meet this requirement. If you do the calculations with the Resolution equation above, you will see that you will limit the resolution available from your system. Since you are working at the High School level, this limitation will probably not have a serious impact on your work. If you eventually get involved with higher level research, I would recommend that you purchase a condenser which better fits your needs.

All of this is explained in "Optimizing Light Microscopy," a book still available through MME. For further information, please contact Ken Piel at kenpiel-at-mme1.com. (Tell him I sent you).

Hope this is helpful and good luck in your studies!

Hello to you all,

We keep our osmium solutions in Schott Duran laboratory bottles
(http://www.schott-duran.com/english/products/duran/detail/laborflaschen
.html), and keep the bottles in a paint can (a new one that never had
paint in it). This is then kept in our fridge. This arrangement seems to
keep the vapour contained (no marks in our fridge) and isn't a pain to
open up. I also keep a pottle of whole milk powder in there for spills.

Question to the list:

Our local safety inspector is concerned about the appearance
of the fridge where we stock our solution of osmium. As you
can expect the white interior of the fridge has turned grey with vapors
of osmium over the years. Although we are taking every precautions to
avoid leakage of osmium vapor from its container, this is a problem that
I have observed in every EM lab that I have worked in. Does someone on
the list have a method to store osmium in such a way as to avoid any
escape of vapor? Also, is there something we could put into fridge that
would trap osmium vapors as they leak out? Thanks for your advise.

Osmium vapours are not stopped by simple bottle tops. We buy ours
already made up. The bottle lids have a plastic (?) insert which is
effective.

Waste osmium is stored in any bottle which is then kept in what we can
in the UK a Kilner jar. It is made of glass, has a rubber seal and uses
wire to clamp the lid very tightly. Osmium vapours do not seem to pass
through rubber seals. Unfortunately new Kilner jars in my supermarket
have plastic seals - so an experiment will be required.

We use Osmium in our lab and keep it in the refrigerator.
We keep it in a glass bottle and cover the lid with
parafilm. Then we put that bottle in another bottle with a
screw top and wrap the bottle in foil. It works great, our
refrigerator doesn't have and black residue, just the two
bottles.

Dear Nestor,

will replies like these reach the sender? I mean, this question was posted
from AskAMicroscopist, not emailed by a list member, so I am afraid our
replies will not reach people like Veselin unless we explicity include
them in the address of our emails...

Skage,

We have been running an older version, S200 for some 15 years. Overall, it
has had an excellent service history (mostly replacing vacuum pumps and
occasional chips, resistors, capacitors, etc).

We are a metallurgy lab, so our samples tend to be conductive and dry. The
large sample chamber is a real plus as is the nice stage. Also, we are not
heavy users and kept limited access with regard to number of users. We do
miss having direct digital imaging, which I presume the S250 has. Your
situation may be very different than ours. Newer scopes offer partial
vacuum capabilities and probably better ultimate resolution.

Other than being an older instrument (not always a bad thing) without
some of the newer bells and whistles, I have no regrets and we look forward
to many more years of service from it.

Subject: [Microscopy] best knife angle

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html


I had known at one time, but I suppose due to age, I can't remember, but I'm
hoping that people here could advise me as to the best knife angle to buy on
a Diatome knife. All our specimens are human biopsy tissue embedded in
epon. I'd like to buy a histo-knife, and I was under the impression that 45
degrees would be the best sort of knife angle for routine use like this. Is
this correct?

I use a 45 for normal work. I find it works very well. I have a 35 I
use for special work. 35 has some advantages, but is not as robust.

it has been a while since i have purchased a knife. 48
degrees should work well for biological tissue.
if you have doubts, questions or concerns i recommend
contacting staci kirsh at electron microscopy
sciences, she is an invaluble resource.

I have had 45 degree diamonds for most of my career but last year bought a
35 degree one. I think there is a significant improvement for the lymphoid
tissue we are cutting these days. I hear they wear out faster but I don't
do a ton of sectioning so the tradeoff seems worth it. Tom

I apologize to the list for the unnecessary messages. We have recently started using the automated reply feature of our email server with some unexpected results. Attempts to repair the auto-reply logic have (so far) failed. Hopefully, my unsubscribe request will be processed soon. Again, I apologize for wasted bandwidth.

Skage,
It might also depend on what you're trading for it. Some older SEMs might
be worth trading while others might be better kept in your lab.

Hello Everyone
Our lab has been offered a refurbished
Cambridge S-250 electron microscope in exchange for
another SEM unit.

Do anyone have anyone have strong opinions of this instrument ?
or know of any advice I should heed before agreeing to such a trade in ?

Thanks ,

Subject: [Microscopy] best knife angle

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives

Diatome suggest for their 'ultra' diamond knives, that 45 degree is
good for routine sections. 35 degree apparently offers less section
distortions in biology and materials science. 55 degree is best for
really hard ceramics and similar materials

The Diatome article offers two references:
1. J.C. Jesior; How to avoid compression; Jnl. of Ultrastructure &
Molecular Structure Res. 95, 210-217 (1986)
2. J.C. Jesior; Use of low-angle diamond knives leads to improved
ultrastructural preservation of ultrathin sections; Scanning Microscopy
Supplement 3, 147-153 (1989); Scanning Microscopy International,
Chicago (AMF O'Hare) IL 6066 USA.

This information came out of a Diatome colour brochure which I must
have received some time in the last 10 years or so. I do not have the
actual references.

NB Incidentally Diatome do market a 'Histo' knife but it is really
intended for light microscopy sections rather than ultrathin ones
('Ultra' knives).

Good luck

unless i have forgotten, diatome also/used to market a
semi diamone kife that would cut semi thin sections as
well as thin sections. of course the memory is the
first thing to go.

Skage,
I'm not really familiar with either model, but maybe someone on the list is
and can give you some recommendations. You might also try contacting Earl
Weltmer of Scanservice Corp.
earlw-at-sbcglobal.net
as he is familiar with more makes and models than I am.

Skage,
It might also depend on what you're trading for it. Some older SEMs might
be worth trading while others might be better kept in your lab.

Hello Everyone
Our lab has been offered a refurbished
Cambridge S-250 electron microscope in exchange for
another SEM unit.

Do anyone have anyone have strong opinions of this instrument ?
or know of any advice I should heed before agreeing to such a trade in ?

Thanks ,

Fellow listers:

Just a reminder that the "Reply" functionality of the
list has recently changed.

Currently, when you "Reply" to a message, the e-mail
is sent to the entire list, not just the original
sender. I believe that this is/was a biproduct of
Nestor's efforts to minimize SPAM (great job Nestor,
keep up the good work).

This is different than in the past, when a "Reply"
only went to the author of the post you were replying
to.

While this makes it easier to reply and have a post go
to the group, it also seems to have spawned a number
of messages there were meant for specific individuals,
but made their way to the entire group.

Not necessarily a problem, but in some cases it could
be...

I noticed the Tungsten Carbide knives in a catalog, and wondered if this
sort of knife would be at all suitable to cut 0.7 micron sections of Epon
embedding biological material. Currently we are using histo-diamond knives,
but it is my dream to be able to use a more durable, cheaper knife that
gives the same result. I was just wondering if anyone has tried this, and
what sort of result they might get with epon. Or is it a stupid idea?

Subject: [Microscopy] Knife angle

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html

Although I am only familiar with so-called 'hard' materials microtomy
(metals, alloys, minerals, ceramic fibers and the like) the interesting
point about the knife angle in this area is that the 35 sections better for
all of the above materials in my lab, so the 45 knives gather dust. Since
wear is a function of the amount of sectioning as well as type of material,
I cannot comment on that aspect, but can note that we never had any damage
to the 35 except when we deliberately tried to do so on ~20 micron,
extremely hard amorphous alloys particles. (It was not pretty!).

The success of the lower angle is no fluke, as Helmut Gnaegi of Diatome has
gotten good sections of; 200 micron quartz particles, polysilicon/metal
layers on a single crystal silicon substrate, carbon fibers (but care had to
be used or nicks would occur), superconducting oxide and Ti implants in
bone. Phil Swab (with a coatings company in California) has sectioned many
optical glass coatings, and layers of boron nitride and artificial diamond
on single crystal silicon substrate. To the best of my knowledge, both of
these specialists had trouble with any other angles.

My theory is that, for most of the above examples, the knife edge only
initiates a crack in the fairly brittle material which is then 'wedged open'
across the block face by the angle of the knife, hence the reduced damage
with reduced angle (though section breakup does occur).

Finally, we did a bit of fooling around with histo knives a few years back.
Far from being only good for semithins, though 1 micron thick sections of
aluminum were produced, they produced some of the thinnest, flattest
sections we ever obtained (~10 nm for nanocrystalline metals) and was the
only knife that produced decent ~20 nm thick sections of the above amorphous
alloy particles. Go figure.

I have had 45 degree diamonds for most of my career but last year bought a
35 degree one. I think there is a significant improvement for the lymphoid
tissue we are cutting these days. I hear they wear out faster but I don't
do a ton of sectioning so the tradeoff seems worth it. Tom

the histo knife should last for years in the hands of
a careful tech. and if you are using the sections for
orientation a few knife scratches should matter. just
be sure to not let an inexperienced person use them.

I have used the Tungsten Carbide knives some. They are not sharp enough to
cut sub-micron thick sections as they leave a slight snowy appearance to the
block face. I have been successful in cutting plastic embedded tissue
sections of approximately 3-5 microns with them. The edge stays good much
longer than glass does. They are great for working with harder materials.
After applying per-mount and coversliping the sections, the snowiness is no
longer evident.

I noticed the Tungsten Carbide knives in a catalog, and wondered if this
sort of knife would be at all suitable to cut 0.7 micron sections of Epon
embedding biological material. Currently we are using histo-diamond knives,
but it is my dream to be able to use a more durable, cheaper knife that
gives the same result. I was just wondering if anyone has tried this, and
what sort of result they might get with epon. Or is it a stupid idea?

Another couple reminder about recent changes-

First, it used to be that a poster's personal name would appear in the
X-from: field and give a pretty good idea of their identity. (List rules
(http://www.msa.microscopy.org/MicroscopyListserver/Rules.html) ask that we
provide our real name as part of the post.) Recent changes have stripped
that field down to just the e-mail address. That makes messages look a lot
more anonymous than before. In fact, the original From: field is preserved
in the new stuff tacked on to the bottom of the post, but many of us
probably don't look those lines over. So, it is probably a good practice to
add a brief signature line so we clearly know who you are and can avoid
some of the recent confusion.

Second, there are those new lines of stuff tacked onto the end of the
posts. I encourage you all to trim those back as you reply to messages.
They add unnecessary bulk to the messages. A new set is always tacked on
anyway.

Cheers, even to those of you in Hawaii. I almost joined you there.

Exactly, Michael.

The problem with tungsten carbide is that it is actually a
microcrystalline alloy of tungsten carbide particles bonded with
cobalt, and this microstructure structure interferes with very thin
sections, much as with steel, but the carbide is harder and tougher,
which is why it is used to machine steel.

Knife facets may look quite shiny but they need to be polished much
flatter than a wavelength of visible light if they are to meet at a
smooth edge measured in the low nanometers, and thus be capable of
cutting the sub-100 nanometer sections appropriate for EM work.

The good thing about metal alloys is that the edge angle can be made
more acute while retaining the desired durability, but only at the
expense of minimum section thickness, so they are used for LM work.

Glass does well for EM knives because it is amorphous and thus has no
microstructure, while being hard enough to section. Of the hard
monocrystal alternatives to glass suitable for EM knives, only
sapphire, silicon carbide and diamond seem appropriate. All these are
good candidate materials for ultramicrotome knives, depending on cost
and other requirements.

yes i agree, glass knives are relativly cheap, fast?
depends on what you are using them for. histo knives
should last for years and can be used to face the
blocks as well. used one for years untill someone with
little experience got hold of it, i had never seen a
diamond with so many chips in it.
moral of the story, keep your knives close, but keep
your diamind knives to yourself.

We use bottles with rubber septums to store the liquid, and keep the
bottles within sealed falcon tubes, within a sealed bottle. This keeps
the vapours from leaking and discolouring the fridge.

Title-Subject: [Filtered] Drosophila eye ultrathin cryosections

Question: I have processed Drosophila eyes for immunolabelling (EM)
using the Tokuyasu technique and the results are, to say the least,
very disappointing. The eyes floated in the fixative which didn't
help matters. The problem looks to be spacial when I compare the
results to standard resin TEM preparation. Maybe there is some
problem with buffers, fixation or section expansion. Does anyone
have experience of these tough little beasties?

Question: Hi,

I'm not too familiar with these despite the fact I have two of them
gathering dust. But I have heard them disfavorably compared to the
S200. Mine may be site-rigged for handling semi wafers (and there's a
chance both came from the same facility, at different times... a
hunch) but in mine the stage uses little more substantial than pvc
tubing to transmit the z-axis knob to the stage: horrible hysteresis.

I suspect these and related scopes were enormously popular, and I
know for a fact this 'scope has die-hard fans.

LaB6 is typical but it wouldn't surprise me if there was an active
aftermarket upgrade to FE: indeed one of mine may have one. On the
other hand, you may have missed the bulk of the aftermarket boat by
about 5 years: lots of parts for old scopes falling off of price
lists.... but sometimes onto "clearance" lists :)

But I'd say even if your own scope leaves a lot to be desired,
trading it for another old scope like this? I'd say deosn't quite
make sense unless you have a special requirement. Ultimately, it just
may not be worth the shipping: which of course is dicey unless
there's at least a few hours teardown and re-assembly. Better the
devil you know.

I hope more people respond, I've been back and forth as to whether to
try to get one or both of mine working for about 6 years now :)

-Jeff

Question: I don't have experience with osmium compounds, and my
suggestion may not be very practical (read: expensive) unless you
have piles of vacuum fittings lying around like I do, but on occasion
when wanting to "absolutely" seal something up I've used a KF50
stainless nipple (or bellows, sometimes)of appropriate length, a pair
of stainless blanks, clamps, o-rings etc. so that the item could be
sealed "vacuum tight". Of course it's all relative but I wouldn't
think much vapour will diffuse though the ~5mm of highly compressed
Viton. The clamps are a bit clumsy to put on but very quick to come
off: I'm not sure you can get a quick-release clamp in KF50 but that
would make it almost one-handed. You could probably save money and
thru-gassing by having a single-ended arrangment, ie: a pipe section
with a KF50 flange welded on one end and a cap welded on the other.
Some (if not most) of the hi-vac houses weld their standard catalog
items on-site, and some don't charge much extra (~%20 premium) for
custom items from stock parts.

I think the idea of absorbants/reactants holds a lot of potential.
Activated charcoal comes immediately to mind.
Is it so reactive as to present a fire hazard if quickly adsorbed
onto the huge surface area?

Title-Subject: [Filtered] further hardening of LR White

Question: I have tried embedding large samples (~ 1cm3) of porous
rock material in a variety of resins and find that LR White (Hard)
provides the best infilling due to its low viscosity. That being
said, the blocks are not as hard as when using epoxide resins such as
EMBED 812. I am cold-curing (i.e. with accelerator) at both room
temperature and at 4?C with mixed results, but even in the best case
the blocks are not as hard as I would expect. My question: can I
further harden the blocks by now placing these samples in the oven at
60?C? My reasoning is that resin within the block (i.e. beneath the
surface and therefore not exposed to oxygen) will proceed with
polymerization at a faster rate than if I left the blocks at room
temperature. Or is the reaction now at completion? Thanks

Question: What is the maximum resolution achievable in Phase Contrast
and also Interferential Contrat DIC microscopy.
Since in bright field it is appr 1.40 I am sure that because of the
phase rings as well as the use of Wollaston prism in DIC, it must be
much lower even using oil immersion objective.

One concern I have always heard was the formation of metal azide,
especially lead azide. These explosive and unstable have been found in
older metal plumbing. When I started as a QC chemist years ago, dilute
concentrations of sodium azoide was used as a perservative in some test
solutions used in clinical chemistry. One than one person got an
unpleasent surprize when working with the older style lead drain pipes. I
later wanted to use a test solution for sulfur which contained sodium
azide, my management had fits. I never did use that test.

I don't want to creat an electron storm of words, but I will suggest you
check out disposial method for your own safety.

Dear Meghan,
The preparation methods for any sample on which you are doing EDS or
other analytic techniques must take into account the elements you are
trying to analyze, so, for example, if you are looking for
water-soluble elements like Na or Cl ion, do not rinse the tissue in
solvents that will remove them. Note, however, that if you are looking
for Cl bound in organic compounds, such as polychlorinated biphenyls,
washing out the ion will enable you to distinguish the organochlorine.
For accurate quantitation, it is a good idea, if possible, to examine
the material untreated, except for freezing and perhaps sectioning,
then dehydrate by lyophylization in the scope and redo the analysis.
This will give accurate values for volatile elements and you can
improve the quantitation by taking the wet/dry ratios from elements
that are not affected by the drying process. Another consideration,
for the case that the elements of interest are not affected by your
preparation process, is not to use a stain that interferes with lines
from those elements. Pb and S are notorious for this, and one case I
ran into was trying to analyze Pt and Ir in a specimen that was treated
with Os and given to me. Since your specimens may not be suitable for
observation in the TEM when not prepared in some way, and since you may
not have access to cryopreparation methods, you need to keep in mind
the general principles that, whatever the preparation steps, they
cannot affect the concentration of the elements of interest, and cannot
interfere with the lines you want to measure. Good luck.
Yours,

Subject: [Microscopy] Looking for tiny holes

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html

Hi:

A guy came into the lab today asking me to image and measure some holes in
a silicon nitride wafer.

OK, I say, how big?

2 nm he says, some maybe up to 70 nm.

That's pretty small, I said. How did you plan on doing it?

Don't know, that's why I came to you, says he.

Here is what he's got. A chip about 1 mm thick with an FIB section out of
it that is like an inverted pyramid into the chip. The pyramid doesn't go
all the way through, but there is a thin area at the bottom that is
supposed to have the tiny hole. The chip is opaque in the TEM, way too
thick, the thin area is translucent at 80KV so we can sort of see where we
are going.

We rigged up a special TEM holder so we could put the chip in the TEM, but
searching for the FIB hole, then the tiny hole inside that took a while.
Eventually I could see something that looked like a hole and it was about
100 nm across. He said that was OK, it was a test hole and should be about
100 nm.

Finding this 100 nm hole was no picnic and I anticipate finding and
measuring a 2 nm hole to be harder. He wants to be able to pop one in and
check the diameter and pop in another one.

Anyone with some bright ideas about how to help this guy? We brainstormed
things like FESEM, AFM, some kind of diffraction with lasers, don't know if
any of them will work, don't have any more ideas.

Thanks

Subject: [Microscopy] RE: Looking for tiny holes

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html

Any idea if there will be a single hole per sample or multiple holes? Will
you have any idea what the probable depth of the small hole will be (not
including the thinning they are apparently doing to the substrate)? The
hole's aspect ratio will have a lot to do with any analysis since a large
ratio (small diameter hole, long bore) can make alignment with any imaging
system a big problem.

This is probably a good time to jump in and see if they can't adjust their
experiment a little. Too often researchers jump before they can walk, and
assume that an existing method can provide whatever information they need,
without providing any compliance to existing techniques. A thinner
substrate would require less preliminary FIB thinning on their part and if
it were thin enough, could allow you to determine and measure the presence
of a hole even if the bore weren't perfectly aligned with the beam.

While they may be reluctant to discuss the work they are doing, details
aren't really needed. It may be in their best interest to understand the
hole formation process before extending it to such a thick substrate that
requires multiple operations. Unfortunately, it may be up to you to point
that out.

} Hi:
}
} A guy came into the lab today asking me to image and measure some holes
in
} a silicon nitride wafer.
}
} OK, I say, how big?
}
} 2 nm he says, some maybe up to 70 nm.
}
} That's pretty small, I said. How did you plan on doing it?
}
} Don't know, that's why I came to you, says he.
}
} Here is what he's got. A chip about 1 mm thick with an FIB section out of
} it that is like an inverted pyramid into the chip. The pyramid doesn't go
} all the way through, but there is a thin area at the bottom that is
} supposed to have the tiny hole. The chip is opaque in the TEM, way too
} thick, the thin area is translucent at 80KV so we can sort of see where
we
} are going.
}
} We rigged up a special TEM holder so we could put the chip in the TEM,
but
} searching for the FIB hole, then the tiny hole inside that took a while.
} Eventually I could see something that looked like a hole and it was about
} 100 nm across. He said that was OK, it was a test hole and should be
about
} 100 nm.
}
} Finding this 100 nm hole was no picnic and I anticipate finding and
} measuring a 2 nm hole to be harder. He wants to be able to pop one in and
} check the diameter and pop in another one.
}
} Anyone with some bright ideas about how to help this guy? We brainstormed
} things like FESEM, AFM, some kind of diffraction with lasers, don't know
if
} any of them will work, don't have any more ideas.
}
} Thanks

Dear Dr.Henderson,

I noticed with interest your recent employment note on the Microscopy
listserver and hope that you are having good success.

Our publication, Microscopy Today, is mailed six times per year to
nearly 15,000 microscopists -- each of whom has either specifically
requested the publication or were automatically subscribed as an MSA
member benefit. Our next issue closes on August 15th and will be mailed
on or about September 15th. You may consider placing your employment ad
with us.

We offer employment advertisements at the reduced rate of $450 for a
quarter-page (3 5/8 in. W X 5 in H) insertion. Larger (3 5/8"
W)employment ads can be purchased for an additional $90 per inch over 5
inches high.

Should you be interested, normal procedure is for you to supply your
text by email , or fax the copy to us at (727) 507-7102. We will
typeset, add a border, etc., and email back a PDF draft copy of the
advertisement with a quote at no obligation to you. After your price
approval, proof, changes, corrections, and billing instructions, are
received, we will publish. You may include a logo if you wish.

Kindly advise rather soon should you be interested in this proposal as
the timing for this issue is becoming critical.

Regards,

Ron Anderson, Editor
Microscopy Today

Why use sodium azide?

We are planning to use sodium azide for the first time as we wish to
store SEM samples for 3-4 months (rare samples available now for a
student project in November). I have found that very occasionally
something can grow in sodium cacodylate buffer. I think there are some
fungi that like it :)

I've seen it as a constituent of a TEM fixative, so it shouldn't be a
problem. But why bother?

} } Hi:
} }
} } A guy came into the lab today asking me to image and measure some holes
} in
} } a silicon nitride wafer.
} }
} } OK, I say, how big?
} }
} } 2 nm he says, some maybe up to 70 nm.
} }
} } That's pretty small, I said. How did you plan on doing it?
} }
} } Don't know, that's why I came to you, says he.
} }
} } Here is what he's got. A chip about 1 mm thick with an FIB section out of
} } it that is like an inverted pyramid into the chip. The pyramid doesn't go
} } all the way through, but there is a thin area at the bottom that is
} } supposed to have the tiny hole. The chip is opaque in the TEM, way too
} } thick, the thin area is translucent at 80KV so we can sort of see where
} we
} } are going.
} }
} } We rigged up a special TEM holder so we could put the chip in the TEM,
} but
} } searching for the FIB hole, then the tiny hole inside that took a while.
} } Eventually I could see something that looked like a hole and it was about
} } 100 nm across. He said that was OK, it was a test hole and should be
} about
} } 100 nm.
} }
} } Finding this 100 nm hole was no picnic and I anticipate finding and
} } measuring a 2 nm hole to be harder. He wants to be able to pop one in and
} } check the diameter and pop in another one.
} }
} } Anyone with some bright ideas about how to help this guy? We brainstormed
} } things like FESEM, AFM, some kind of diffraction with lasers, don't know
} if
} } any of them will work, don't have any more ideas.
} }

} The thickness at a hole depends upon whether a precipitate fell out, which
leaves a thicker region around a hole. If a hole is formed by electropolishing
an annealled sample of a pure metal, or even some alloys, the area around the
hole may be very thin. 20 to 50 nanometers might be typical thicknesses
achieved.

I saw that yesterday. I guess things are working out for Scott, if
his lab is growing. That's good.

Colleagues;

I believe I have plugged the loop-hole that allowed the Housing
for Sale Email to get through the system earlier today. It was
a unique situation to say the least, but then again they are all
getting this way.

At the same time since I was editing the code I have also changed the
Listserver Software so that a reply should nolonger go automatically
to the Listserver but to the sender.

Nevertheless I caution you to please always look at what your sending.
It only takes a moment.

If you wish to send a copy of your "reply" to a message to the Listserver
you will now have to explicitly add the Listserver Email
address (microscopy-at-microscopy.com ) to your recepients list

Nestor
Your Friendly Neighborhood SysOp

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives

Sodium azide should be used very carefully. It has been used as a biological
preservative for a long time. In 1968 I was working in a CDC lab in Phoenix
(Yes, there was a CDC branch there at that time) where we used sodium azide to
preserve hepatitis antigens. One of the technicians was using an aspiration
tube attached to a pipette to transfer sodium azide solution to an antigen
preparation. She coughed and sucked the solution into her lungs. She was on
the floor gasping for breath within 15 seconds. There was an MD sitting in
his office next to the technician's lab. He heard her fall to the floor. He
new what she was doing and determined what had happened. He had what he
called a "universal antitdote" in his office. He administered the antidote
and gave her mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and she survived.

I know (I hope!!) people don't use aspiration tubes today but this incident
sure brought home to me how how quickly sodium azide works. You may want to
look at the following CDC URL:
http://www.bt.cdc.gov/agent/sodiumazide/basics/facts.asp Although
this article states that there is no specific antidote for sodium azide
poisoning, in the incident I related above, an antidote was given. I don't
remember what it was.

Sodium azide should be used very carefully. It has been used as a
biological preservative for a long time. In 1968 I was working in a
CDC lab in Phoenix (Yes, there was a CDC branch there at that time)
where we used sodium azide to preserve hepatitis antigens. One of
the technicians was using an aspiration tube attached to a pipette to
transfer sodium azide solution to an antigen preparation. She
coughed and sucked the solution into her lungs. She was on the floor
gasping for breath within 15 seconds. There was an MD sitting in
his office next to the technician's lab. He heard her fall to the
floor. He new what she was doing and determined what had happened.
He had what he called a "universal antitdote" in his office. He
administered the antidote and gave her mouth-to-mouth resuscitation
and she survived.

I know (I hope!!) people don't use aspiration tubes today but this
incident sure brought home to me how how quickly sodium azide works.
You may want to look at the following CDC URL:
http://www.bt.cdc.gov/agent/sodiumazide/basics/facts.asp
Although this article states that there is no specific antidote for
sodium azide poisoning, in the incident I related above, an antidote
was given. I don't remember what it was.

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives

We use a standard SEM to work with nanometer-scale features (~50 nm) in
silicon
nitride. You might consider using electron diffraction. If using a 10
keV beam,
(wavelength of .12 angstroms), a circular aperture with a diameter of 2
nm would
create a circular diffraction pattern (described by an Airy disk). With these
parameters, the radius of the first zero is given by R = 0.007*(distance from
the aperture).

Dunno much about TEM and standard detectors used, but if you have an electron
detector with a spatial resolution of 10 microns placed 1 cm below the sample,
you would be able to resolve the central diffraction order (thereby measuring
the hole diameter). To do this, you'd turn off the scanning mechanism for the
microscope, and you'd want to focus quite a bit beyond the hole itself (to
ensure the electron wavefronts extend across the diameter of the hole.

Anyway, I'm sure there are more straightforward solutions, but this is just an
idea. We do similar stuff all the time.

} Hi:
}
} A guy came into the lab today asking me to image and measure some holes in
} a silicon nitride wafer.
}
} OK, I say, how big?
}
} 2 nm he says, some maybe up to 70 nm.
}
} That's pretty small, I said. How did you plan on doing it?
}
} Don't know, that's why I came to you, says he.
}
} Here is what he's got. A chip about 1 mm thick with an FIB section out of
} it that is like an inverted pyramid into the chip. The pyramid doesn't go
} all the way through, but there is a thin area at the bottom that is
} supposed to have the tiny hole. The chip is opaque in the TEM, way too
} thick, the thin area is translucent at 80KV so we can sort of see where we
} are going.
}
} We rigged up a special TEM holder so we could put the chip in the TEM, but
} searching for the FIB hole, then the tiny hole inside that took a while.
} Eventually I could see something that looked like a hole and it was about
} 100 nm across. He said that was OK, it was a test hole and should be about
} 100 nm.
}
} Finding this 100 nm hole was no picnic and I anticipate finding and
} measuring a 2 nm hole to be harder. He wants to be able to pop one in and
} check the diameter and pop in another one.
}
} Anyone with some bright ideas about how to help this guy? We brainstormed
} things like FESEM, AFM, some kind of diffraction with lasers, don't know if
} any of them will work, don't have any more ideas.
}
} Thanks

I didn't see that you got a response on this, so I thought that I would
do so.


I built a FIM/IAP for my dissertation work back in the early to mid
80's. Mine was made using UHV stainless steel components. I was
familiar with most of the people in the field at that time and didn't
know anyone that was still putting together glass systems. I think that
it has been a long time since people have been using glass systems for
FIM. When they were, mostly they had their systems custom made by their
in-house glass blowers.

To anyone interested,



I have a Leica TCS 4D confocal system originally installed in 1994. It has a Kr/Ar laser and a water cooled UV laser, with a Leitz DMRBE upright microscope and a number of lenses. It has the usual problems associated with age but was still functional when it was disassembled for storage.

Title-Subject: [Filtered] Measurement of ink depth/contrast

Question: Hello Gentlemen,
I work for an independent testing organization, Trace Laboratories - Central.
We have been asked to have printing ink measured for depth and contrast. Laser printing is done on the insulation sleeve of a cable.
per Sikorsky specification SS7333, Paragraph 4.6.5
This asks for measuring to an accuracy of 0.0001 inch with a contour projector or calibrated microscope or Zygo measuring device. The contrast measurement is suggested to be made with a Spectrum Technology CMS^2 Contrast Measuring System. I would need evidence of either an accredited laboratory or calibration to pass on to the customer.

Is this something that someone associated with this resource might be able to quote?

Regards,
Mike

Title-Subject: [Filtered] Drosophila eye ultrathin cryosections

Question: I have processed Drosophila eyes for immunolabelling (EM) using the Tokuyasu technique and the results are, to say the least, very disappointing. The eyes floated in the fixative which didn't help matters. The problem looks to be spacial when I compare the results to standard resin TEM preparation. Maybe there is some problem with buffers, fixation or section expansion. Does anyone have experience of these tough little beasties?

Question: Hi,

I'm not too familiar with these despite the fact I have two of them gathering dust. But I have heard them disfavorably compared to the S200. Mine may be site-rigged for handling semi wafers (and there's a chance both came from the same facility, at different times... a hunch) but in mine the stage uses little more substantial than pvc tubing to transmit the z-axis knob to the stage: horrible hysteresis.

I suspect these and related scopes were enormously popular, and I know for a fact this 'scope has die-hard fans.

LaB6 is typical but it wouldn't surprise me if there was an active aftermarket upgrade to FE: indeed one of mine may have one. On the other hand, you may have missed the bulk of the aftermarket boat by about 5 years: lots of parts for old scopes falling off of price lists.... but sometimes onto "clearance" lists :)

But I'd say even if your own scope leaves a lot to be desired, trading it for another old scope like this? I'd say deosn't quite make sense unless you have a special requirement. Ultimately, it just may not be worth the shipping: which of course is dicey unless there's at least a few hours teardown and re-assembly. Better the devil you know.

I hope more people respond, I've been back and forth as to whether to try to get one or both of mine working for about 6 years now :)

Title-Subject: [Filtered] MListserver:b Re: Osmium Vapors

Question: I don't have experience with osmium compounds, and my suggestion may not be very practical (read: expensive) unless you have piles of vacuum fittings lying around like I do, but on occasion when wanting to "absolutely" seal something up I've used a KF50 stainless nipple (or bellows, sometimes)of appropriate length, a pair of stainless blanks, clamps, o-rings etc. so that the item could be sealed "vacuum tight". Of course it's all relative but I wouldn't think much vapour will diffuse though the ~5mm of highly compressed Viton. The clamps are a bit clumsy to put on but very quick to come off: I'm not sure you can get a quick-release clamp in KF50 but that would make it almost one-handed. You could probably save money and thru-gassing by having a single-ended arrangment, ie: a pipe section with a KF50 flange welded on one end and a cap welded on the other. Some (if not most) of the hi-vac houses weld their standard catalog items on-site, and some don't charge much extra (~%20 premium) for custom items from stock parts.

I think the idea of absorbants/reactants holds a lot of potential. Activated charcoal comes immediately to mind.
Is it so reactive as to present a fire hazard if quickly adsorbed onto the huge surface area?

Title-Subject: [Filtered] further hardening of LR White

Question: I have tried embedding large samples (~ 1cm3) of porous rock material in a variety of resins and find that LR White (Hard) provides the best infilling due to its low viscosity. That being said, the blocks are not as hard as when using epoxide resins such as EMBED 812. I am cold-curing (i.e. with accelerator) at both room temperature and at 4?C with mixed results, but even in the best case the blocks are not as hard as I would expect. My question: can I further harden the blocks by now placing these samples in the oven at 60?C? My reasoning is that resin within the block (i.e. beneath the surface and therefore not exposed to oxygen) will proceed with polymerization at a faster rate than if I left the blocks at room temperature. Or is the reaction now at completion? Thanks

Subject: [Microscopy] Hitachi S4100 screens and ergonomics

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html

Hi All,

We have just had an ergonomist look at our Hitachi S4100 set up as the
primary user is beginning to have some problems which could get very
nasty as time goes on.

Has anyone out there had similar issues? And if so, what issues were
felt to be critical and what solutions were offered?

One of the biggest issues (according to the ergonomist) is the position
of the screens. They are CRT's embedded in a console and as such can't
be moved. Has anyone tried to take the video signals from one of these
systems (or similar) and put them onto a LCD monitor? If so, how was it
done and how successful was it? (these screens are also beginning to
lose their intensity which isn't helping!)

Another issue is the arrangement of the console and column. The
ergonomist feels that they would be better at 90 degrees to each other
but the cable length between the column and console prevents that. Has
anyone tried to lengthen these cables (some go to the HV tank)?

Any help or information would be appreciated.

Cheers

Since I'm the Manager for the Educational Division I have to put my 2 cents
in.....

NEVER buy a microscope just because it is affordable. I always suggest
getting in a local dealer who can
provide you with a demonstration AND be there after the sale in case you
need service.

There are many "off brand" microscopes out there that are a good way to
through away money. I have been
in many labs where whole sets of microscopes are on the shell because one
or two starting smoking and the
lab manager was afraid to use them. I have also tried servicing some of
these off brands and the materials
used and the machining makes them good ship achors :-)

For your own best interest, call a local dealer and get a demonstration -
it's also good to ask for references from
people who have used the microscope you are looking to buy. Remember the
saying "you get what you pay for".
Bad quality microscopes will prevent you from being able show the students
what you are trying to teach.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives

Hello Colin,

We have an Hitachi S-4000 which I believe is very similar to the S-4100. We
have encountered both of this issues and have addressed them as follows:

We attempted to turn the column cabinet in order to enable users better
access to the manual stage controls. As you observed the cable length is
insufficient to accomplish more than 20 -30 degree of rotation. We also
determined that turning the column introduced a new problem...it became
difficult to introduce a sample into the SEC port (which is our primary
sample entry port). Our solution was to purchase a motorized stage. While
this was a costly upgrade, it was money well spent. The 5 axis stage we
purchased from a company called E.Fjeld(http://www.efjeld.com/P_5500.htm)has
performed much better that anticipated. As expected wear and tear on the
user is dramatically improved! In addition the stage motion is much more
precise and backlash is nonexistent.

On the S-4000 there was a simple solution to adding a high resolution CRT
type monitor. A BNC port accessing the display crt already existed. If you
open the back lower console panel you should see two BNC ports in the upper
middle region (ours are unlabelled). We connected a cable from the left
port to the B & W monitor. If you have schematics for the system you should
be able to determine if this port exist on your system. Unfortunately I
don't know much about LCD monitors and their cabling options so this could
be an issue when selecting a monitor. However, we have been satisfied with
the B & W CRT. Also, we haven't noticed any adverse field effects while the
CRT monitor is in use.

While not addressed in your post a third area relating to ergonomics was
addressed by elimination of the Polaroid camera system. We purchased a
passive acquisition system from PCI
Quartz(http://www.qrtz.com/acquisition.html) which allows us to capture
digital images.

While the upgrades were costly they have improved the user interface,
increased productivity, and added to the useful lifetime of the instrument.
The system is 16+ years old and continues to produce quality results in a
digital environment. I'm not sure how much, if any, of this information is
helpful or relevant? However, if you have any question please feel free to
contact me directly. Good luck, jr.

Disclaimer: These are my opinions only and do not reflect those of my
employer. While I am a satisfied customer I have no financial ties to any of
these manufacturers. All of the upgrades mentioned are available from
multiple vendors and it is suggest that you investigate all options prior to
making any purchases for your system.

That's an easy one.....no! Dektol is for developing photo paper, not
film. Take it from someone who did this by mistake once and got
negatives with grain the size of gravel and films so thick you could use
them to view eclipses. It just might be possible with enough testing
and fooling to get negatives you could actually see through, but the
quality would be pretty awful anyway.

If you don't make prints anymore, donate your Dektol to your local
photography classes.

Good luck,
Randy

Hello All,
Can anyone advise this new user to our lab? His prep/questions are
below. I think that he needs negative staining. How best to prep this
sample?/fixation/washing out the sucrose?? and what type of filmed
grids are being used these days??Formvar/Pioloform??other??

-----------------------

Basically what I have is a 100nm virus particle bound to a 100nm
liposome molecule by a Nickel NTA "bridge". In short, I would like a
picture of this complex. So, If I had this complex (usually in
~10-20%sucrose solution), what would I do from there as far a
preparation?

Dear Listers,

Has anyone used a low melting point (LMP) agarose to
encapsulate cells for TEM? If yes, which resin is
best suited for LMP agarose encapsulted cells? We
have in the lab Durcupan ACM resin, EMbed-812, LRW
resin kits.

The samples were encapsulated after buffer wash, after
osmium fixation.

Thank you,

We use Agarose type IX (Sigma). It works well with Spurrs and Araldite
(from TAAB in the UK). This summer I have had a problem infiltrating
cells in agarose with LR White (polymerising at 55 degrees C) despite
success in two previous years. This is probably a problem with me
rather than the products.

I have used LMP many times for TEM. I process it just like I would a
block of tissue and go into EMbed-812 or Spurs.
Good luck

Subject: [Microscopy] LM zinc-osmium staining of trout chloride cells:woes

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html

Hello all,

We have a group of labs that are
attempting to standardize an Osmium-
ZnI2 staining procedure for detection of
chloride cells in trout gills.

The protocol seems foolproof: immerse
freshly dissected gill pieces in a freshly-
made solution of 1 part 2% OsO4 to 4
parts 3% ZnI2 for 24 at 4C, dehydrate,
clear in Histochoice, paraffin-embed,
section, de- paraffinize and mount in
Cytoseal60-xyl.
There seems to be no consistency in
results. In fact, more often or not we see
no staining of the chloride cells, though
the gill filaments themselves display the
rich tan colour of well-osmicated tissue.

Does anyone have experience with this
technique? What can cause it to fail? Is
age/source of reagents an important
factor? Are there any tricks to making
the procedure reliable?

Dear Linda,
If the specimen would not be perturbed by removal of the sucrose,
either of the techniques of negative staining or cryoEM would be
improved, and for negative staining with UAc, the buffer should not
contain phosphate. It would be best if the specimen could be in a
dilute buffer, either tris or a Good buffer would be suitable. I would
use carbon-formvar coated grids for negative staining and either lacy
carbon or, better, Quantifoils for cryo imaging. Depending on the
resolution desired, the tolerance of the specimen for low pH, the
equipment available, etc., the easiest procedure (and the one that I
would start with) is negative staining with UAc, which is at pH = ~3,
or phosphotungstate or phosphomolybdate, which are at pH = ~7. After
getting the specimen into the appropriate buffer, put 5 ul of the
appropriately diluted material onto a glow-discharged carbon-formvar
grid. Add 5 ul of a 2% solution of the staining compound, and let
stand for 1 min. Blot most of the liquid off with a bit of #1 filter
paper applied to the edge of the grid, add 10 ul of a 1% solution of
stain, let stand for 1 min, then thoroughly blot off the liquid. After
seeing whether the dilution of the specimen gives a good amount of
material on the grid--enough to see several particles in each (film or

Claire,
Note that low melting point agarose (and probably all types)
is nicely stained by fast green. We would make a few percent solution
in 100% ethanol and add a drop to our agarose blobs. Otherwise, they
can vanish in the solutions and lead to some frustrations. I suppose
fast green would also dissolve in acetone but I don't know that for a
fact. However, now we trap small samples between formvar films on
wire loops and like that much better than agarose (except on the days
when the formvar won't cast, 8-().

HTH,
Tobias

This is not entirely true. Many years ago, I saw an article suggesting the
use of Dektol for developing 4489 and Electron Image Plates (glass). The
article demonstrated a more linear curve for exposure using 80-100kV.

I used Dektol for years after reading this article with great results. I
used this formula with SO-163: 5500 ML water + 400 ML Full strength Dektol.
I would basically make up the regular Dektol solution of photographic paper
development and from this solution would pour off 400 MLs. Consistent
results for printing with No. 3 grade paper were common.

You may have to experiment with scope intensity to exposure. I was able to
set-up my scope exposure was 2 seconds with a development of the regular 4
minutes exposure with nitrogen burst for 2 seconds every 10 seconds.

As for grain....what grain? Is a 3 x 4 foot enlargement ok for grain?

Wow....I stand corrected. In 40 years of darkroom work, this is the
first I have heard of using Dektol successfully for film development,
except for a few avante-garde photographers using it for special effects
(i.e., grain). My life has been more sheltered than I thought, I guess.

I take it you have never used it with 4489? Just curious.

Randy

Randy,
I did use it with 4489, but liked the linearity of SO-163 compared with
Kodak plate film and so switched to SO-163. I no longer use film or the
darkroom as I have gone 100% digital.

Stefan,

One possible way is by using the Quantomix Wet-SEM
technology.

http://www.quantomix.com/

I haven't used their system, but it may be one
possible way to image lubricant soap structures.

Question: I would like to change our TEM tissue embeddment protocol to eliminate propylene oxide. Toward that end, what are some effective (and quick and easy...) methods to remove water from "100%" ethanol or acetone? We have an extremely humid building environment and I am sure there are many better techniques than my ancient method of adding the appropriate molecular sieve, swirling and letting stand until the fine particulates settle...

Thanks in advance.

Dear Listers,

Many thanks to all of you who provided input on TEM
processing for agar encapsulated samples.

Also, the article by Paul Webster in Microscopy Today
shows insightful techniques to process small pellets,
samples. Thank you for pointing me to that article.

Have a nice day,

For many years now we have been purchasing sealed, pint containers of
100% ethanol. We use freshly opened containers as the final ethanol.
After several openings, this is then considered as 95% ethanol and
used to produced the more dilute ethanol series. We have never had a
failed embedding due to water in the ethanol using this procedure.
And, yes, we are also in a humid environment.

i know this, the original question was how to dry out
100% etoh and ethanol. yes of course 100% etoh will
absorb moisture from the air and how much will depend
on the humidity and lenght of time the bottle is open.
i would think in modern air conditioned buildings
would have a fairly low humidity.

Title-Subject: [Filtered] MListserver: microwave protocols for electron and light microscopy

Question: Hello Everyone
The microwave protocols website has moved from http://www.microwaveprep.org to
http://www.microwaveprotocols.ubc.ca

Debby Sherman did an awesome job organizing the original website but didn't have the time to maintain it and has passed it on to me since I have someone who maintains my website. (Note: my webmaster wanted to use CSS. If you have a Mac there are still some problems using Internet Explorer but it works just fine in Safari. If anyone has any experience with CSS bugs for Mac IE, please get in touch with me.)

We started to use a microwave four years ago. It became so popular we now have two.

For confocal and fluorescent microscopy where a protocol normally takes three hours (an hour in the primary antibody and an hour in the secondary), it typically takes a total of half an hour in the microwave. So researchers come in at 9 am and are on the confocal at 9.30 am. We usually find less background staining and the cells are fresher - especially when the primary staining is usually overnight.

For em processing that normally takes about three days, it is 2-3 hours in the microwave.

If it works conventionally, it will probably work in the microwave. However, the settings tend to be different for different specimens. What works for one doesn't necessarily work for another. Hence the Microwave Protocols website as a depository for different protocols and tips. For instance, a PhD student here was using the microwave for fluorescent staining of brain slices and found that staining 30 micron sections in eppendorf tubes stained better than 10-15 micron sections in a 24 well plate.

If you have a protocol that works for a particular specimen, please submit it to anyone of the reviewers. We have a review panel to check the protocols before they go up.

Question: Dear Listserver,
Awhile back there was a string about gold sputtering using a gold coin. This was considerably cheaper than buying a new target. I don't know how to find these in the archives. Do any of you know how this was done or if you know where this information is located in the archives of the Listserver? I have a Hummer V. Thanks. Barbara Plowman P.S. I hope this isn't a repeat post!

Dear Barbara,
Although probably more expensive than using a gold coin, you pay not much
more than the current price for gold if you get your local jeweller to make
up a target. We get ours made somewhat thicker than specified so they last
longer. The donation of a sputter-coated insect or other item is usually
much appreciated too!
cheers,

Could someone please tell me the height of the Gatan 3/8" diameter
mounting stubs for their Disc Grinder? I am making an adapter for our
Dimpler(R) for a customer who uses that hand grinder and the dimensions
are critical. Obviously in my new position, I don't have one on hand
(or in my hand). If you could also verify the diameters for both the
stainless steel and Pyrex(R) mounts it would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Scott,
My Gatan Disc Grinder 623 has two mounting stubs and one is about 3/8" long
and the other a little (~1/16") longer. They were probably both longer when
it was new, but of course they get ground down a little as you use the tool.

Title-Subject: [Filtered] MListserver: Working ISI Mini-SEM Console/ TV Scan May Be Available.

Question: Hi,

As some of you may have noticed on Usenet, I've been developing a digital/pc replacement for the "bulky" console of the diminutive ISI Mini-SEM. I hope to be able to bring the 'scope around to primary and secondary schools in hopes of inspiring kids into pursuing science.

The project is almost finished and it's time to decide what to do with the console. It's temtpting to canabalize it for the ~$150 in AMP connectors I'll need to finish my project, but before I tore into it I wanted to see if there was any interest from someone with a viable 'scope and problematic console. Only the console, TV scan controller, and little B/W monitor is included: I need the external power supply.

I still have some testing and analysis to do, probably be about a month before it's ready to ship.

Contact me if you're interested,

-Jeff

Question: Hi,


I'm interested in purchasing accessories, upgrades, crossgrades, and parts for ISI MINI-SEM units. In particular I'm looking for alternate chambers and stage
arrangements. I have the "straight-on" chamber based on right angles: curious about the chamber with the 45 degree cut for the controls.

Filaments, apertures, liners, any other running gear always appreciated.

The 'scope will probably spend about %50 of it's on-hours in primary and secondary schools for the next few years, at least.

Anyone with extra stuff, or who might have a lead on a repository, please e-mail.

Hi

My experience with a wide range of sputter coaters would suggest that
provided the gold coin was in good electrical contact with the power supply
(perhaps glued to an old target with a conducting media) you should find
everything works well.

Good Luck

I tried having this part repaired, but got scammed. Fortunately, I have the
part back, if not my money. If anyone has a source of ball bearings, I will
try and fix it myself. Thanks.

I have an old Simplex microscope (actually Leitz,) with one of the massive
stands used for this type of measuring microscope. The micrometer height
adjustment went out on me years ago and I've just been using the threaded
height adjustor on the column to focus the scope. Now, I'm at a point where
I really need the fine adjustment. Is there anyone out there who can
disassemble the focusing rack that holds the scope and replace the small
ball bearings so it will function again? If anyone can help, please let me
know. Thanks.

===============================================================
My experience with a wide range of sputter coaters would suggest that
provided the gold coin was in good electrical contact with the power supply
(perhaps glued to an old target with a conducting media) you should find
everything works well.
===============================================================
Steve is correct if you were using a coin made of pure gold, probably better
than 0.999 purity.

But it has to have that high of a purity to work. Why? Because with gold
being so soft, most (monetary) coins (in fact all that I have ever heard of)
contain alloying elements that don't sputter so well (or at all). Hence,
once a little gold is sputtered, the surface becomes rich in these (left
over) alloying elements and sputtering stops. One does not need very much
of the typical alloying elements before such difficulties present
themselves. Therefore, in the general case, "gold" coins really don't work
very well. We have also seen some evidence of particulate contamination of
the samples from small metal inclusions that rain down on the sample once
freed from the gold matrix. The exception is the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf
which is advertised as being 0.9999 pure and that, should work quite nicely
provided it is not too thick (2.8 mm) to fit into your cathode holder.
However most coaters don't like cathodes that thick, and they are designed
to take cathode diameters larger than the 30 mm Maple Leaf.

If the reason why one is motivated to try using a coin is to save money, a
better approach might be to visit a jewelry workshop and you should be able
to get a gold foil of the needed purity. But then again it tends to not be
in the most desirable thickness and it also would have to be cut into the
needed disc diameter with some amount of waste foil (and some of the
"savings"). You would also lose the opportunity to return the left over
cathode for recycling (for a recycling discount) as is possible with some
of the microscopy supply vendors who routinely supply replacement gold
cathodes for coaters. It is the mechanical processing and "cookie cutting"
of the gold cathodes, and polishing, that results in replacement cathodes
from traditional sources to appear "higher" in price relative to the jewelry
store option.

Disclaimer: SPI Supplies offers replacement gold and other targets for
sputter coaters and we would have a vested interest in having prospective
customers purchase their replacement cathodes from firms like ours.

We used a Canadian Maple Leaf several years and have had great success. We
pounded it flat and used silver paste for the adhesive.

Title-Subject: [Filtered] LR gold and benzoyl peroxide

Question: Hi! I was wondering how I should catalyze LR Gold with benzoyl peroxide. The LR Gold resin that I purchased did not come with any instructions on how to add the catalyst. The blurb in the Ted Pella catalogue only mentioned "benzoyl peroxide, 1%w/v." My question is, do I add the benzoyl peroxide to the entire bottle of LR Gold the same way the catalyst is added to the entire bottle of LR White resin or do I add the benzoyl peroxide to whatever aliquot of LR Gold resin I am using for each project?

Thanks!

Dear Dr. Komboli,
Just add the required amount of Benzoyl peroxide in
an aliquot of LR gold (the amount you require) and
stir it. It would dissolve then you can embed your
samples and polymerise. I use about 50 mg for 5ml of
LR gold.

Subject: [Microscopy] Optical Microscopes: Leica v Olympus

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives

Hello again listers,

A former colleague, now in another continent, has sent me the following
query. Could any of you please share your experiences on ANY of the aspects
here: if you feel there's the likelihood of a commercial flame war
developing, please send the reply to me only, but any thoughts of general
interest please reply to the Listserver.

Thanks for your attention.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I have some microscopy questions again, wondering if you can help? I am
going to buy an optical microscope for our institute, of course, my students
will use it more than others. I expect to use it in transmission Polarized
mode (for liquid crystal, polymer crystallization etc) and reflective
Nomarski interference contrast mode (for polymer surface and other surface
morphology) (still under consideration are the fluorescent mode combined
with our existing monochromator and CCD spectrometer)

I have contacted two companies, Leica and Olympus. However, as the price for
Leica is higher than Olympus, it is very hard for me to make a decision for
which company to go. I don't know if I can have some advice from you? I am
not familiar with Olympus and not sure the quality of it.

Leica has put on market many new models. The one I bought in the UK was a
Research type model. Leica here has an upgraded research model, but many new
low cost analytical models, cheaper on the body. At the moment, their
research model is still very expensive. I may have difficulty to afford it.
However, I am not sure of the quality of these analytical models. Leica
low cost polarized model has its analyser resolved only at 2-3 degree, but
in their research model the analyser can resolve to 0.1 degree. The
analytical model can also be fitted with reflective Interference Contrast
(via Smith reflector and DIC prisms)

I was told Olympus developed from biology microscopy and now is capable to
fit Nomarski Optics (they call it differential interference contrast DIC). I
have seen a research type Olympus microscope today. It seems quite good to
me. As I do not have sample to try, I checked only quality of the cross
polarizer. It seems the polarizer quality is good.

What Olympus argue that they can provide better quality of long working
distance lens than Leica to work with LINKAM hotstage. Leica provide me only
N PLAN lens for both polarized and interference contrast. Olympus suggest
these lenses are not good enough for interference contrast.

The choice of Lens seems very important. However, Leica Agents have not
advised me on that so far. I don't have must experience on choosing lens. Do
you also have any suggestions on that? I am looking forward to hearing from
you.

It was over 5 years ago that I shopped for a Pol Scope. But I think our
strategy will still work.

1. We collected a set of slides representing the type of things we would or
might want to see through the scope. In our case it included hairs, molds,
insects, crystals, etc.

2. We prepared an evaluation sheet with each feature we want to look at or
check, each specimen to examine, also the manufacturer, model demonstrated,
costs, etc.

3. We gave each available vendor a separate day to demo their scope using
our set of slides & any they supplied.

4. We had 2-3 evaluators who filled out an evaluation sheet for each scope
we looked at.

5. Later we compared the evaluations & discussed it as a group. We took
into account price, quality of scope, features, how well it worked with our
slide set, responsiveness & attitude of salespeople to our requests &
questions, availability & cost of service, warranty length, etc before
making our recommendations to our supervisor & lab director.

Hope that helps.

Question: Hey All,
I've decided to update the digital camera on our Olympus PME 3 invertedlight microscope. The digital camera that is currently attached is a Kodak DMC I (digital microscope camera). Any suggestions what to get that won't break the bank? I'm going for the best resolution for the buck. I've heard of people buying regular digital cameras and kits to attach to microscopes rather than the specialized microscope cameras; I don't know which gives better pictures/scheaper. I just need better resolution than what we currently have. Being able to control the camera from the computer and import directly into photoshop is nice also. Thanks in advance for the advice!

i like the nikon D-70 digital camera. it can easily
fitted to most microscopes or as for my use a
telescope with a t mount adaptor.

Subject: [Microscopy] TEM Sample Prep: Plasma Cleaning Ultramicrotomy Samples

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html

We are interested in feedback from any group in the community who has
experience with plasma cleaning TEM samples prepared by ultramicrotomy. Our
specific samples are inorganic (mineral plus some carbonaceous material)
grains in epoxy ultramicrotomy sections suppoted on continuous carbon film
TEM grids. We would like to know whether contamination can be successfully
prevented, or removed, from these samples by plasma cleaning (while in the
TEM holder) without also causing destruction, alteration or volatilization
of the epoxy section and/or carbon support film.



Thanks,

For years we have been using a Kodak DCS760 (actually a
Nikon F5 SLR body with Kodak CDD and electronics). The SLR's
are very nice because (1) they mount on the photo ports correctly
(i.e. F-mount, and otehrs), (2) they use the microscopes optics
alone, (3) and the SLR's have the better end (consumer/prosumer)
CCD's and electronics. Negative side of things is that unlike true
scieitific cameras the exposure systems are not setup to handle
Light Microsopy type imaging very well and so a little fiddling is
required.

We just got a new Nikon D-50 (very similar to the D-70, CCD
noise seems a little better, and $100 lower cost). With the Nikon
Capture software it can be used in "tethered" mode and driven
completely by the computer. Now, when I say we just got, I really
mean that, the box arrived this morning and we haven't installed it
yet. Give me a couple of days and I will give a report back.

As for breaking the bank: Nikon D-50 body $720, Capture
software (needed for tethered operation) $100, and right angle
viewfinder $185.

Right angle view finder: Very VERY helpful for upright
microscopes, but may not be needed / useful if you can use the
front camera port on an inverted scope.

More info on the Nikon & other digital camers take a look at:

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/specs/Nikon/


(BTW: I do not sell cameras or anything else nor have any financial
interests in digital cameras or Nikon)

for high quality images everything depends on the
pixels. the more pixels the better the image.
as for exposeures, everyone needs to remember all
cameras ""see"" things as an 18% grey card. so all
images need to be adjusted.
and yes to all those of you about to jump on me i know
this is simplistic.

I think this post is too simplistic. Don't play the Pixel game when you buy a scientific camera. For example: If you buy an 8 Mpixel camera to work at high magnification on your microscope, you are wasting money and storage. The resolution will be limited by the microscope, and not by the number of pixels of the camera. Likewise, if you are doing Fluorescence, a camera with fewer pixels can be more sensitive and thus be superior to a camera with gobs of pixels.

Also, please explain your comment that "all cameras ""see"" things as an 18% grey card".

for high quality images everything depends on the pixels. the more pixels the better the image.
as for exposeures, everyone needs to remember all cameras ""see"" things as an 18% grey card. so all images need to be adjusted.
and yes to all those of you about to jump on me i know this is simplistic.

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives

We routinely plasma clean holey/continuous carbon films with
particles on them it works
fine here at ANL. I've only done a few (i.e. { 5) microtomed
samples, but have not had
any problems with them, but that is not a significant number of
samples to gauge the
effectiveness.

The key here is to recognize, as you have apparently already done,
that the reactive plasma obviously will attack the carbon in your
support as well as the source of hydrocarbon contamination. I have found
that the hydrocarbon, not surprizingly is more reactive than, for
example, the more
stable carbon support films. The key here is to tailor your gas composition
as well as to adjust the power levels of your plasma. At ANL, for
carbon support films, we
use Argon gas only and at a low power setting of ~ 5-10 W for ~ 10 minutes
in our SBT PC-2000 plasma cleaner. In my experience, for these type of samples,
you should keep oxygen to a minimum as this will rapidly attach all
carbon. Basically,
we have found that there will be enough residual oxygen released by
the Argon plasma
to attack the organic contamination, assuming the specimen is not
heavily coated.

Of course, not all "carbon support films", are created equal and
some have more
hydrocarbon than others, so you will need to test the receipe for your films
as well as for the model of plasma cleaner and its settings
as each manufactureres unit will vary in efficacy. It is best here to make
a few sacrifical films and tune your settings to minimze the reaction on your
support films.

unless i have forgetten basics of camera exposures,
which is possible i am getting old. the metter in the
camera takes all the light falling on it and
"averages" it. it assumes the image to be aboout 18%
grey card. if you don't have one i can send you one of
mine. i use them to handle high contrast subjects.

again unless i am out of it isn't the highest
resolution possible to be about 200nm in a light
microscope? and pixel resolution to be between 3 to
8um, i could be wrong. again very simplistic. so i
guess i should hang onto my D-70.

200 nm is proabaly a bit optimistic, but let's go with that value. If you use a 100x lens, the 200 nm spot will be enlarged to 20 microns. If you use an 8 Mpixel camera with a pixel size of 2 microns or so, you are oversampling by a large factor.

Now, there are compelling reasons to buy an 8 Mpixel camera, but the number of pixels is not the only parameter you should use to decide on a camera.

Hmmm, you must be thinking on film cameras. In digital cameras, you don't have an extra sensor for exposure time setting. The imaging sensor itelf provides the information that you need. This allows a much better control of the exposure. For example you could take the information from the live image that is displayed on the camera or monitor, and find the maximum and minimum exposure pixels and then calculate a new exposure time to maximize signal, or minimize noise, etc. You can do that for the entire sensor, only use a certain spot, average over several spots...

that is the reason i like the d-70. it allows you to
sample the exposure over several spots. i also have
software purchased the adobe creative suite 2. it alos
for a great deal of control over the final image, such
as image bracking. i highly recomend it.

well i learned photography with a film camrea. i still
have several including a large format camera.
i have no vested interest in either nikon or adobe.
just like them both.

Supposing the resolution is 200 nm, that is less than half a wavelength of
light. That might be attainable given a lens (and other optics) of
sufficiently high NA. Those are generally the higher power objectives. My
basic 40x lens has an NA of only 0.63, so I won't get such good resolution.
But suppose we could get 200 nm out of a 100x objective.

200 nm resolution means we would need pixels every 100 nm or so. I
generally figure prints of 120 mm or so wide. That means the width of my
image will be about 120 um at 1000x. That means I will need 1200 pixels
across my image for a 100-nm pixel spacing. That isn't very many pixels in
today's terms. My old 1.3 megapixel Pixera can handle that.

You might say that the extra pixels allow you to take lower magnification
images and still record up to the resolution limit. First, what is the
resolution for that set of lenses? The NA and resolution falls off with a
drop in magnification. There may not be detail to record with the extra
pixels.

Having said all that, 3 megapixel consumer cameras are practically throw
away items now. For that matter, so are 40 GB disk drives. It doesn't hurt
to add a few more pixels (and MB) to be safe. However, I think a lot of
people are quick to take high-pixel images for which they never will use
the information contained there. They just provide a demand for more and
bigger hard drives.

I am going to have to run a comparison here one of these days. I have a gut
feeling that lower pixel number cameras may be more sensitive in low-light
situations than their higher pixel cousins. (I think that is what Mike Bode
suggested.) I want to do a side-by-side comparison to show myself and
others. I will grant that higher pixel cameras can record more detail in
their regular photographic mode under sufficient light. I just don't know
that they have the same edge in the lab.

well i think the money spent on a camera that will
grow with the applications at a reasonable price is
the way to go. the nikon will allow you to adjust the
exposure and quality of the final image. much also
depends on how much enlargement you need before you
begin to see the pixels.
i firmly believe that digital is the wave of the
future. you can get a nikon d-70 for under $1000
these days. and if you wish it is vesatal enough to be
used for macro photagraphy and making slides for
presentations.
again i have no vested interest in nikon. so hold the
flames on that issue please

yes by all means a side by side comarison is the way
to go.
i don't belive you can have to much hard disk or RAM,
or pixels. i typicaly enlarge and pics i take by quite
a bit. i use the nikon on a telescope for taking
images of the moon and other objects in daylight.
it is a hobby of mine.

What you said here certainly makes sense in many cases. Other people have different requirements. For example, they might want to have a live image on a PC screen to do more processing, or integrate the camera into an automated system, or provide the images live over the internet to a colleague. Many other applications come to mind that require a different camera than the one you are suggesting.

This only supports my initial point that the number of pixels should not be the only parameter to look at when you buy a camera for a microscope.

Re: new JEOL microprobe user listserver

Colleagues,

Rather than merely wishing for the twentieth time that there was a
listserver for JEOL microprobe users, technicians, and lab managers
to share questions, knowledge, news, problems, and experience (and
even socialize a bit), I decided to actually set up one.

There has been a listserver for Cameca SX50 users since 1996 to
discuss problems, suggest improvements to Cameca, plan meetings at
national conferences, and so on. I initially considered having a
8800/8900-only listserver, but I decided that there are more
similarities than differences across the generations. Whether you
use a classic JEOL JXA-733, a new field-emission 8500, or anything in-
between, this is for you. Of course, Cameca/ARL/whatever users are
welcome too!

I know, I know -- the last thing you need is more e-mail, but a
listserver is only as strong as its subscribers. Let's make this a
valuable resource! This, of course, is not meant to replace the
excellent MSA listserver (Thanks, Nestor!), but I think that it will
be valuable to more targeted list at our disposal, rather than e-
mailing all 3000 MSA subscribers. The same goes for the MAS
listserver too.

This is a moderated listserver, meaning all subscribers and all posts
are approved by a moderator (me). Moderation is intented to
eliminate spam and other junk mail from being sent to all subscribers.

There is a webpage with details here: http://probelab.geo.umn.edu/
listserver.html.

To subscribe, e-mail the message "SUB PROBEUSERS {YOUR_NAME} " to the
address: listserv-at-lists.umn.edu.

Please e-mail me with any subscription problems -- I want everyone to
be able to participate! Also please forward this to colleagues who
might be interested and forgive any multiple copies -- I'm trying to
announce this widely.

Best,
Ellery

Hi all,
In the same vein as the LM digital discussion my department was to
equip all the LM scopes in the introductory botany class with digital
cameras. They also want to be able to project what is being viewed on
the instructor's scope and have the students to be able to project what
is being viewed on their scopes (to share with the whole class).
Has anyone done this set up for their department? Or, know if there is
a company out there that would set up the lab for us?
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated...especially from
vendors.
thanks,
Beth

Subject: [Microscopy] Re: TEM Sample Prep: Plasma Cleaning

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html

I would like to add a few statements to the discussion and support some
of the statements that Nestor made with his posting.

We had a demonstration at the M&M 2005 in our booth where we dipped
various samples into mechanical pump oil (hydrocarbon based), wiped them
with a cloth, estimated the contact angle, plasma cleaned them with our
PC2000 using just atmospheric air for 5 min, and then took them out, and
the samples were ultrahydrophilic (contact angle less than 5 degrees).
Of course prior to doing this at the show, we did it in our lab. We did
this demonstration to put a stake through the heart of any arguments
concerning an oil vs an oiless pumping system. What we did not make
public at the show were results from our studies that showed that using
Ar on the samples also had a significant cleaning affect. (We also did
not show the results for Fomblin(R) and silicone based oils that showed
the same results as the hydrocarbon oil.) Five to ten minutes with
about the same power as was used for air gave clean surfaces. These are
the similar parameters that Nestor is discussing below in his posting
and our results are in complete agreement with his findings. We did
find a difference with different materials, (semiconductor, ceramic, and
metal), but if cleaned long enough (maximum about 10 minutes) all of the
samples exhibited the cleaned surface void of hydrocarbons as evidenced
by the contact angle.

I also have anecdotal information concerning plasma cleaning of glass
TEM samples that were coated with carbon. I had samples that I ion
sputtered graphite and other samples that I evaporated carbon onto.
These samples were then plasma cleaned (in a competitor's plasma
cleaner). It has been awhile since I did this, but one form (I think
that it was the evaporated carbon) resisted plasma cleaning while carbon
from the ion sputtered samples was removed. I went almost 20 minutes
without the carbon being removed. This strongly suggests that the form
of carbon is very important as Nestor suggests. To my knowledge, nobody
has looked into this. I know that the amount of hydrogen in
diamond-like carbon (DLC) films does change the Raman spectra from these
films. Raman or FTIR techniques might be interesting method to use in
an attempt to relate to how different forms of carbon perform using
oxygen plasmas. I know that DLC films with differing levels of hydrogen
that are grown for tribological applications have different properties
in a humid environments. The more hydrogen in the films, the more they
are susceptible to failure in a humid atmosphere.

We routinely plasma clean holey/continuous carbon films with
particles on them it works
fine here at ANL. I've only done a few (i.e. { 5) microtomed
samples, but have not had
any problems with them, but that is not a significant number of
samples to gauge the
effectiveness.

The key here is to recognize, as you have apparently already done, that
the reactive plasma obviously will attack the carbon in your support as
well as the source of hydrocarbon contamination. I have found that the
hydrocarbon, not surprizingly is more reactive than, for
example, the more
stable carbon support films. The key here is to tailor your gas
composition
as well as to adjust the power levels of your plasma. At ANL, for
carbon support films, we
use Argon gas only and at a low power setting of ~ 5-10 W for ~ 10
minutes in our SBT PC-2000 plasma cleaner. In my experience, for these
type of samples, you should keep oxygen to a minimum as this will
rapidly attach all
carbon. Basically,
we have found that there will be enough residual oxygen released by
the Argon plasma
to attack the organic contamination, assuming the specimen is not
heavily coated.

Of course, not all "carbon support films", are created equal and
some have more
hydrocarbon than others, so you will need to test the receipe for your
films as well as for the model of plasma cleaner and its settings as
each manufactureres unit will vary in efficacy. It is best here to make
a few sacrifical films and tune your settings to minimze the reaction
on your support films.

Hi Beth,

If you have a setup that allows sharing of a LCD projector between different PCs, all you would need is a camera that provides a live image on the PC screen. Student's PCs as well as the instructor's PC are connected to the projector. You would then simply switch between the PC to show what is on their screen.

Before you buy all that equipment, make sure that the quality of the projected image is sufficient. LCD projectors are very good for presentations, but the nuances of microscopic images might get lost.

Alternately you could use something like "remote desktop" to connect the instructor's PC to another PC in the classroom. The instructor's PC would then show the students desktop and be displayed via the projector. That way you would not have to deal with multiple connections to the projector, but the setup may be more complicated. Again, check the quality first. "remote desktop" will reduce colors if the bandwidth is too low, and you will get a bad image displayed on the screen.

Hi all,
In the same vein as the LM digital discussion my department was to equip all the LM scopes in the introductory botany class with digital cameras. They also want to be able to project what is being viewed on the instructor's scope and have the students to be able to project what is being viewed on their scopes (to share with the whole class).
Has anyone done this set up for their department? Or, know if there is a company out there that would set up the lab for us?
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated...especially from vendors.
thanks,
Beth

Subject: [Microscopy] TEM Sample Prep: Plasma Cleaning Ultramicrotomy

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html

There is more that I would like to add concerning plasma cleaners
affecting carbon films.

In the paper, "Surface Science Aspects of Contamination in TEM Sample
Preparation, J. T. Grant, S. D. Walck, F. J. Scheltens, A. A. Voevodin,
Proceedings of the Materials Research Society, Workshop on Specimen
Preparation for Transmission Electron Microscopy of Materials IV, eds.
Ron M. Anderson and Scott D. Walck, Pittsburgh, Vol 480, (1997), there
was a difference in the ability of the two types of plasma cleaners,
capacitively coupled and inductively coupled in the removal rate of
existing electron beam induced contamination. At the time, I thought
that this could be due to the difference in plasma densities between the
two systems. However, subsequent experiments at SBT showed that
pre-existing contamination could be removed by increasing the power and
lowering the pressure in the capacitively coupled system. (BTW, that's
SBT's design.) What these parameter changes do is increase the energies
of species in the plasma. In retrospect, the inductively coupled system
operated at a lower pressure than the capacitively coupled system and I
now believe that it is a difference in the energies of the species in
the plasma between the two systems that caused the difference. With
respect to the current topic question of how a plasma cleaner will
affect a carbon containing film, these parameters give another degree of
operator control in how the carbon containing materials are affected.

Incidentally, a recent flyer from a vender at the M&M 2005 meeting
claimed that an addition of hydrogen to the O2 plasma worked better and
that this was a discovery of theirs. It is well known in the literature
that an addition of H2 to a N2 or an O2 plasma will increase the
activated species of nitrogen and oxygen and in the case of oxygen are
the ones that are responsible for the cleaning. In fact, additions of
He will also increase the activated species and you don't have the
potential hazard. This is used in reactive sputter deposition systems
to increase the stoichiometry of oxide and nitride films. However, a
trade-off is that a light-element only plasma will increase the ion
temperature which could possible have adverse affects. The addition of
Ar which has a higher mass helps cool the plasma temperature. However,
keeping the results of Nestor's temperature rise experiments in mind,
I'm not sure how important this affect could be, but for
carbon-containing films, it could be very important.

I probably should give a disclaimer to the effect that SBT makes and
sells a plasma cleaner, but the above paragraphs are too "sciencey" as
opposed to "salesy", so I won't! OOPs, I guess I just did.

We are interested in feedback from any group in the community who has
experience with plasma cleaning TEM samples prepared by ultramicrotomy.
Our specific samples are inorganic (mineral plus some carbonaceous
material) grains in epoxy ultramicrotomy sections suppoted on continuous
carbon film TEM grids. We would like to know whether contamination can
be successfully prevented, or removed, from these samples by plasma
cleaning (while in the TEM holder) without also causing destruction,
alteration or volatilization of the epoxy section and/or carbon support
film.

Subject: [Microscopy] Questions on sodium azide

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives

I could do with some help with my risk assessment. This stuff seems to
be fascinatingly reactive yet I know many labs use it for storing
biological samples. I am planning to store samples in 0.02% sodium
azide and sodium cacodylate for 3-4 months. On contact with water
sodium azide produces a toxic gas. One safety site said it should
therefore only be stored in a fume hood. Another site stated that it
should not be stored in fridges with exposed copper or lead parts. My
sparkproof fridge suppliers advised against it. I am dubious about
storing biological samples at room temperature. Any suggestions?

I have been following this discussion on pixel number and resolution
for LM cameras with great interest.

It occurs to me that it might be useful to have a discussion of bit
depth as well. I realize that most cameras are standardized at 24
bits, which is really 8 bits per color channel. Although this does
give quite a range of color values, the intensity range is limited to
256 gray steps. I wonder if there is a need for greater range, so
that we can make finer disctinctions among intensities and/or record
a greater range, from bright to dim.

Thanks Michael. It is a useful resource.

It seems to the me that the real determinant of how much need there
is for increased bit depth is a function of the images. Many of the
fluorescence images I have seen appear to be saturated, in which case
perhaps 2 or four bits would be sufficient. However, if one is
interested in FRET or other quantitative techniques, the bit depth
may matter. As with pixel density, bit depth depends on the samples.

You are absolutely right that even a 24-bit image can only show 256 levels of gray. This compares to about 60 or so that the human eye can distinguish under optimum circumstances. Also, as far as I know, there are no monitors out there that can display more than 8 bit per color, so for displaying the images, this range is probably sufficient.

However, most people want to do further processing of the images, or they need a larger range for acquiring the images (diffraction patterns come to mind), and in fact, most cameras can provide images that have a wider range. Just as an example, our Cantega (a TEM b/w camera), can provide 16 bit of gray level information, or 65K gray levels. These images can then be stored as 16-bit gray level images to keep all the information contained in the image. The question then turns to how you can display this on an 8-bit monitor, but there are solutions to that. Other cameras have 14 , 12 or 10 bit ranges, and they are typically also stored as 16-bit files. For color, there is a 48-bit format that can be used. The files are getting pretty large then. If you have a 5 Mpixel color camera and store the image as a 48-bit file, each image requires 30 MB of storage.

Question: I have been catching up on some lab cleaning and have about 12 gallons of spent photographic fixer. I have been told that I can sink dispose of this using copious amounts of water or pay to have our chemical disposal contractor pick it up and dispose of it. Does anyone have a simple on-site silver recovery system I could try first? Is it worth the trouble/expense?
Thanks for any help.

Mike,

As you imply, the higher bit depth in B&W as well as color might be useful
performing image analysis where display of the image is not necessary but
obtaining data and statistics is. Re file size, the Nikon D2X raw image
opened in Image Capture and then converted to a TIFF file in Photoshop is
70MB! Takes a bit of processing power, that one does; think I'm going to
have to go to a dual processor system.

Damian Neuberger, Ph.D.


You are absolutely right that even a 24-bit image can only show 256 levels
of gray. This compares to about 60 or so that the human eye can distinguish
under optimum circumstances. Also, as far as I know, there are no monitors
out there that can display more than 8 bit per color, so for displaying the

However, most people want to do further processing of the images, or they

Listers,

We're considering a tissue processor for EM samples. We would like
to hear from any of you that have thoughts about the Leica EM TP
Tissue Processor or the EMS LYNX Tissue Processor. The usual types
of questions like do they work well, how is your support, price, etc.
or any other information that you may think is important would be
very useful. Thank you.

Here in New Jersey we are required to dispose of used fixer as hazardous
waste, due to the silver content. Kodak sells (or used to sell) a silver
recovery kit. so you might try them.

i remember those days when i worked in NJ, it was a
pain in the but to collect all the spent fixer. you
are right about kodax and the silver recovery kit.
someone else used to do it as well but alas that brain
cell is long gone.
i do believe if you truly just want the silver in it's
raw form you can use steel wool so the silver will
react with the steel wool and bind to it. perhaps some
on the list server can explain the chemistry to us
all. i was never any good at inorganic chemisrty.

Question: Stacey,
My understanding is that unused fixer can be sent down the drain with copious amounts of water but not spent fixer because of the silver content. I am hesitant to put anything down the drain other than water, so I've always used a silver-recovery system service.
If UC has a a Radiology Dept in its system, check with their mode of disposal or try a commercial photo lab to see what they do. They may even take it off your hands for disposal. I'd check the local regs and/or Haz Waste Dept before I put anything down the drain. It invariably comes back in your drinking water, IMO that is.

Question: I am currently examining an aircraft part which is made of aluminum C355-T6. I am fairly accustomed to cast aluminum, but I do not have experience wiht the fatigue appearances of this paticular alloy. What I see appears to be elongated eutectic regions with some very faint crack front markings. The surface appears somewhat rubbed and is making identification of stiation marks very difficult. Does anyone know where I can find some information about this subject - prefferably with images?? Thank you very much.

Hmmm.....There's a product called SilverMagnet SMT-20
that is compact and collects via electrolysis. And
there are also EPA certified steel wool buckets that
separate the silver out but those are mostly for low
concentration baths. Not for fixer based soln.s

Most large photo supply places will have some sort of
kit that will collect the silver that you can turn in
for a small check.

Check www.silvercouncil.org. They will direct you to
a suitable method for your use.

One good reference for fracture surfaces would be the

"Fractography". Another is titled "How Components

I have a lot of experience looking at fracture

Perhaps I can put this in perspective for you. Most
states release some raw sewage. It generally happens
by accident. Either a broken pipe or a malfuntion of
the waste plant, It is not just NJ. I am not an
apologist for NJ so how the flames please,

As for the NJ reg, I started work in NJ over 15 years
ago and it was a reg back then, not sure if that is a
generation or not. You tell me. Some states, I was
working in Dallas for a lot of years allowed fixer to
be dumped down the drain when I was working there.
Perhaps some one from Texas can tell me if this is
still alowed.

I should note that mercury is released into the water
constantly, it is a by product of coal plants
producing energy. How many of us recycle batteries or
just throw them in the trash and forget about them.
there is no state that requires we recycle them.

So your point is? "Just do it if you can get away with it" and can point to
something else that's worse?

I pointed out, off list, to the original inquirer that most jurisdictions limit
silver (in spent fixer) because it is a biocide that can cause a die-off of the
bacteria that are required for the normal functioning of waste water treatment
plants.

As an alternative to paying a waste hauler to remove fixer, one can sign up a
precious metal recovery company to remove it. Usually this is a break-even
proposition with the recovery firm providing a container and pickup service in
exchange for keeping the silver and handling the disposal of the silver-free
remains.

I am not certain what your point is. All i was doing
was pointing out to you that NJ has regs on how to
deal with spent fixer. I was not suggesting that
anyone cheat on proper wast disposal. Your suggestion
that I was is offensive.
FYI I know why silver is prohibited. Don't put words
in my emails that are not there. I already have enough
trouble typing.

As far as I am concerned labs should go digital. Alot
of major hospitals already have.

Hi

You may find that you are able to punch through the surface deformation by
increasing the kV. The backscatter contribution to the image will increase
and if you are lucky, and the surface damage does not go too
deep, you may see striations more clearly.

Good Luck

Question: We have had a Lynx for nearly 20 years, and during that time I have used it at least once a week, sometimes 2 or 3 times per week. It has needed a replacement mother board once, and we have replaced the vial seal a couple of times. We only go up to 1:1 resin/propylene oxide as we found the neat resin step messy, so we unload at the end of the 1:1 stage into clean processing vials with neat resin. We found it too risky to do unattended runs overnight, as once a vial was misaligned and the samples dried out as the carousel was unable to move to the next vial, but that was operator error rather than a fault with the equipment. We also found that the propylene oxide evaporated too quickly for an overnight run. We do re-use the vials and I clean the baskets and vials with acetone, which works really well, only discarding them when they become too black or loose in the carousel.

I really like the Lynx, and we give space to a newer second one, which is also really handy for the future....

I have seen the Leica version, but have no experience using the machine. They are pretty much similar in design, and the consumables are virtually interchangeable.

It is economic with chemicals and in our hands, reliable. The only limit is the size and dimensions of your samples you want to process.

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html

Hi

I know many of the UK microscopists read the listserver so here is my plea!

I am looking for a material science laboratory in the UK that uses an FEI
SEM and EDS. I have two material science overseas customers who wish to
take an advanced SEM + EDS training course in the UK and unfortunately all
of my clients with these instruments are biologists!

In exchange for letting us use the instrument we are willing to offer two
places on the course for the laboratory to use. We would need the
microscope each afternoon for 5 days and a small seminar room or office each
morning for the lectures.

If the establishment wishes we are able to carry out the lecture side of the
course for as many people as they may wish to attend, only the practicals
periods would be limited in numbers.

Thanks listserver sorry to take up space.

Subject: [Microscopy] TEM of aspiration biopsies - remove blood

Contents Retrieved from Microscopy Listserver Archives
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver/MicroscopyArchives.html

Our staff cytopathologist was wondering if there was an EM fixative
available that was similar to "Cytorich Red" fixative for light microscopy.
This formalin based fixative lyses the red blood cells from the fine needle
aspiration biopsies and leaves the tumor cells for the cell blocks and
histology work. He wanted to try this for his EM specimens, but
unfortunately this contains formaldehyde, not gluteraldehyde.

Is there something similar out there for EM?

Thanks, Peggy Harger-Allen

Question: I would like to be able to attach a digital SLR (ie Nikon D100) to a c-mount on a stereo microscope like a Leica MZ9.5 or Nikon SMZ800. I've heard conflicting answers from product reps, some saying that it isn't possible, some saying it is? However, I have no experience at all microscopy, but need to buy a system that has at least some photodocumentation ability. I don't need (and can't afford) a 4-5000 dollar imaging system. It seems like putting a digital SLR on a c-mount would be a reasonable and less expensive way to do photodocumentation.

Thanks

I use Macbeth densitometers and like them very much.
While I have an old one, there are newer versions
available. Check out:

http://usa.gretagmacbethstore.com/

I think that these have been a big standard for
a long time.

Title-Subject: [Filtered] MListserver: TiAL alloy/intermetallic electrical resistance

Question: Dear Listers,

I'd like to know the electricla resitance of TiAL alloy with different Al content? Any reference to recommend? Is it necessary for TiAL alloy or intermetallic to form at very high temperature (} 800 C) or is it possible for TiAl alloy to form at relatively low temperature (say 400 C)?

Your help is appreciated!1

IMHO it's a sad state of affairs that I am afraid to make any bold statement
for fear that I too will be censured, thrown off the Microscopy List and
denied any forum for appeal. Kind of mimics the current climate in our
national government....If this turns out to be my last communication, I want
to thank you all for your open and willing sharing of so much microscopy

I think Sergey got what he seemed to be asking for.

It was just absurd, as well as personally insulting to Nestor, to say that this
forum is "politically correct and heavily censured (sic)".

And he did say he was "loosing (sic) interest here".

I don't think that you, John, do either yourself or Sergey any favors by sending
this to the list. I don't think this should snowball.

I and most listers, belong to it because we want to participate in discussions
about microscopy, not listen to these little intrigues, vendettas, and exhibitions
of paranoia.

As I have said before, it's not an internet chat room.

IMHO it's a sad state of affairs that I am afraid to make any bold statement
for fear that I too will be censured, thrown off the Microscopy List and
denied any forum for appeal. Kind of mimics the current climate in our
national government....If this turns out to be my last communication, I want
to thank you all for your open and willing sharing of so much microscopy
knowledge. --Jane LaGoy

Colleagues

As many of you know, an individual's subscription was canceled to
the Listserver
in July , as per the rules of the Microscopy Listserver to which
everyone must
comply in order to maintain their subscription. An unverifiable message was
recently forwarded by a third party to the listserver concerning this matter.

For the record, the subscriber was informed of the cancellation and
instructed that he could apply
for a new subscription after an appointed period of time. There
have been a total of six
individuals to whom this restriction has been applied in the last 12
YEARS of operation
of the Microscopy Listserver. Of the six, all but two have been
fully reinstated and
they have, since that time, compiled with the rules of the
Microscopy Listserver.
The individual in question, should he so choose, will be given the
same opportunity.

I should also note for clarification, that contrary to the
unverifiable statements purported to be
from this individual, there are no special filters placed upon him personally,
only those imposed upon all non-subscribers and SPAM/UCE sources
by automated server
software.

I will remind you that the Listserver is a subscripton based forum
having well defined
and professional purposes, which has rules concerning its use as well as
membership. It is moderated and is monitored for complaince with its rules
with reasonable decorum and professionalism expected at all times
by subscribers.
There are numerous unmoderated public chat rooms which are
available to anyone that is interested in participating in
unbridled open ended public venues.

If you wish to review the Microscopy Listserver Rules, you may find
them on-line at
http://www.microscopy.com/MicroscopyListserver.

Anyone that feels that the Listerver rules are too restrictive for their liking
is welcome to unsubscribe at any time. The electronic forms for this
can also be found
at the above WWW site.

There is no purpose in further discussion on this matter, as
Administrator/SysOp of the
Microscopy Listserver, this decision was mine and mine alone, and
it is final. You
are welcome to address comments to me personally off-line should you
so desire.

I consider this thread closed and suggest that this forum return to
questions/discussions
concerning its purpose i.e. Microscopy & Microanalysis.

Nestor
The Microscopy SysOp

This will be the last time I respond to your your
email.
I have been to Europe more times than you have been to
the US. I am a world traveler. In fact I will be in
Nice France next week attending a medical conference.
Care to hash it out there. I can give you my exact
hotel and dates I will be there.

Dear Henrik,

There are several modifications for the JEOL-35, you need to know which
microscope you have. One type has a connection in the back, labeled as
JA-2, which is a 9-pin Amphenol connector. The other type has a fairly
large round connector for external beam control.

Look for diagrams in the book for wiring of that connector. I have diagram
for Amphenol connector only. Let me know if you need them.
Good luck,
Vlad

Hi All,
We are trying to find someone to work on our Balzers 360M Freezed Fracture
machine. It is a "modernized" unit with a thin film monitor and rotary
shadow device. It was is good working order when it was "decommissioned"
about 4 years ago but has been sitting idle since then. We would like to
find
someone in the Sacramento/San Francisco area who can help us get this
intrument up and running and who we can call for future service. We would
also like to know about general reliability and parts availability.
Thanks,

The link works for me. Under Exhibits-Permanent there is a short note about the collection. There are some electron microscopes, but they were not well displayed when I was there last.

Paul:

Mounting a digital SLR on a photo-port on a LM is very easy to
do - BUT I do not know of a digital SLR which uses a C-mount
specifically. The c-mounts are very small, digital SLR's, like film
SLR's use larger mounts like a nikon F-mount, Olympus O-mount,
Canon EF-mount, pentax KA-mount, or a more generic T-mount, or
other.

AND you will generally need to use some type of photo-eye
piece lens to project the image to the "film"/"sensor" plane of the
SLR


Your Leica may very well have an adapter on it for the C-
mounting which you will need to replace for a specific SLR body.

} Question: I would like to be able to attach a digital SLR (ie Nikon D100) to a c-mount on a stereo microscope like a Leica MZ9.5 or Nikon SMZ800. I've heard conflicting answers from product reps, some saying that it isn't possible, some saying it is? However, I have no experience at all
microscopy, but need to buy a system that has at least some photodocumentation ability. I don't need (and can't afford) a 4-5000 dollar imaging system. It seems like putting a digital SLR on a c-mount would be a reasonable and less expensive way to do photodocumentation.

Dear Listers,

Now that the whole world has gone digital, I just know there must be
bushels of those plastic TEM negative processing racks sitting around
feeling lonely and unwanted. We are starting a special program to
provide a home for these unfortunate victims of technological progress
and would be happy to take a few in.

If you have any of these to spare and would be willing to donate them
for the cost of shipping or a reasonable reimbursement, please let me
know. Thank you for caring.

Cheers,
Randy

I recently purchased a used Molecular Dynamics Phosphor Imager. It was, of
course, sold "as is" and I have no idea if I will be able to use it. The
seller stated that it comes on, but the computer shuts down. I have no model
numbers or anything until it actually arrives and I can inspect it. I hope
to use the beast for both X-ray and autoradiography imaging, and perhaps,
X-ray diffraction powder camera work. If anyone on the list uses this brand
of equipment and might be willing to help me diagnose the problems with it,
please reply to me off line. Thanks.
