How to Keep Your Samples Under Physiological Conditions
The Leica Nano Workflow
Leica Microsystems’ Nano workflow combines dynamic data with the best possible sample fixation by high pressure freezing. However, good sample preservation won’t help if your cells are stressed by temperature drops or a shortage of oxygen (O2), carbon dioxide (CO2), or nutrients. These factors will influence a variety of biological processes down to their underlying ultrastructural basis and impair your analysis.
Therefore, Leica Microsystems worked together with Baker Ruskinn to develop a way to keep your samples under physiological conditions from the moment of cell seeding until high-pressure freezing.
With this solution, samples can be grown, selected, and imaged without any time pressure. In this article, it is described why controlling O2 is especially important and how it is addressed in the Leica Nano workflow together with Baker Ruskinn.
