Electron Microscopy Labeling
For post-embedding labeling, incubate thin sections by placing grids on drops of reagent arrayed on a sheet of Parafilm™. The use of nickel grids is recommended, especially if silver enhancement procedures are intended.
For pre-embedding labeling, float specimens in dilute reagent on a rocking table.

Apply a few drops of dilute reagent to cover the specimen.
