Abstract

Specific DNA staining for electron microscopic observation is simplified by a shorter synthesis of the staining reagent. The new, more reliable reagent, osmium ammine-B, is stable for more than a year, dissolves completely in water, and does not require reoptimization of staining conditions for every batch, yet reproducibly gives strong contrast to DNA-containing structures.
