    Since the contrast in the electron microscope depends primarily on the differences in the electron density of the organic molecules in the cell, the efficiency of a stain is determined by the atomic weight of the stain attached to the biological structures. Consequently, the most widely used stains in electron microscopy are the heavy metals uranium and lead.
