But if you were to try the thinner product, in addition to finding it easier to seal, you will be happily surprised to find out that the thinner version of the product is also much less expensive! In the present technique tissue sections were attached to widely used silane-coated slides, processed, and embedded in Epon beneath non-adhesive transparent plastic films. Although the 5 mil film sectioned quite acceptably, we are told that the 2 mil product sections even easier. Don’t already have an Oxford Academic account? Abstract For correlative light and electron microscopic immunocytochemistry, a simple method for flat embedding of cryostat sections in Epon was devised. Maximum dimension is 10″. Hajime Sawada, Michiyo Esaki; A simple flat embedding method for the correlative light and electron microscopic immunocytochemistry, Journal of Electron Microscopy , Volume 47, Issue 5, 1 January , Pages —, https: This method simultaneously offers transparency and thinness of the embedded blocks, absolute flatness of the sections, and easy removal of Epon from embedding molds.

Some comments specific to use in microscopy and histology laboratories The fluorinated-chlorinated polymers, because of the fluorinated aspect of the system, exhibit, in some respects almost PTFE-like properties, and therefore separates easily from all of the commonly used epoxy embedding formulations used in microscopy and histology.

However, the manufacturer of ACLAR films has discontinued the production of fllm 5 mil film and only offers the film in 2 and 7. This article sclar originally published in.

Microscopy in with a renewed editorial board. In general, we would recommend against use of this film when EDS is contemplated, unless of course there were no other alternatives which often times could be the case.

Because of the Cl content in the film, we would urge caution before using ACLAR film in conjunction with any EDS work because of the large count rate that would be coming from the presence of Cl in the film. And finally, the film shows no signs of deterioration even after long term exposure to UV.
