3D Optical HREM imaging has been used to study various aspects of plant development

Plant tissues and HREM

Many plants tissues are suitable for processing using 3D Optical HREM imaging, including flowers, roots, stems, leaves and fruits, though they may require a relatively long infiltration time and treatment with vacuum.
