Cyanoacrylate glue as an alternative mounting medium for resin-embedded semithin sections
Liu, Pei-Yun., Phillips, Gael E, Kempf, Margit, Cuttle, Leila, Kimble, Roy M, & McMillan, James R (2010) Cyanoacrylate glue as an alternative mounting medium for resin-embedded semithin sections. Journal of Electron Microscopy, 59(1), pp. 87-90.
Commercially available generic Superglue (cyanoacrylate glue) can be used as an alternative mounting medium for stained resin-embedded semithin sections. It is colourless and contains a volatile, quick-setting solvent that produces permanent mounts of semithin sections for immediate inspection under the light microscope. Here, we compare the use of cyanoacrylate glue for mounting semithin sections with classical dibutyl phthalate xylene (DPX) in terms of practical usefulness, effectiveness and the quality of the final microscopic image.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
