Electron dense, heavy metal compounds of uranium, tungsten and molybdenum have long been utilized for "negative staining" in electron microscopy. As demand for ultra-fine structure in biomolecules has increased, new fine grain structure materials are required.
Polysciences, Inc. is pleased to offer uranyl formate, as an advancement in negative EM staining. The uranyl formate is made from depleted uranium.The fine grain structure, fast biomedical tissue fixation properties and stability of this material make it unique for many imaging protocols.Radioactivity: approximately 1.11E4 Bq/g
