snap fit gelatin capsules

Current techniques involving the use of acrylic resins and dry ice temperatures for electron microscopy embedding require ultraviolet polymerization in many instances. Gelatin capsules have found a renewed popularity with these applications. Also useful for specimen storage, shipping and carrying of small specimens, apertures, and calibration specimens.

Be sure to pre-dry capsules before use. Flushing with dry nitrogen is recommended before resins are added to the capsules.
