Observation in the LM often requires sectioning of the sample with a microtome. Therefore, fixation and embedding may be needed. In addition, staining with organelle-specific fluorescent dyes and with antibodies as well as FISH techniques need fixation of the cytoplasm which is either possible by chemical substances or by freezing. Fixed cells can be further processed for observation in the electron microscope.
