Hello, I am working on research project using A. tumefaciens and needed
to take a scanning electron micrograph of them and have had some
problems. Initially, cells were removed from agar plates and dried on
copper before being gold-coated. Upon viewing, the microscope could not
resolve the different cells, only a large mass. Is there a special
method for viewing bacterial cells under a SEM? I will try drying cells
at a significantly less concenetration however. Any suggestions?
