|Ruthenium tetroxide, 0.5% stabilized aqueous solution|
Useful as a staining agent for electron microscopy of polymers, as well as a fixative for biological samples. Ruthenium tetroxide penetrates tissue very slowly, reacting strongly with proteins, glycogen and monosaccharides.
Ruthenium tetroxide can be used as an even more aggressive form of staining for the study of polymers by TEM than osmium tetroxide.
Supplied in pre-scored ampoules each with its own ampoule cracker.
Recommended Storage: 4°C in refrigerator:
