Shorter periods result in poor preservation and fragile slices. If brain blocks or slices are immersion fixed for longer than 48 h there is extraction of tissue constituents and organelles and nerve processes appear swollen. The advantage of en bloc staining is that preservation of membranes is superior (see Figs. 2C and D), and it eliminates having to stain grids with uranyl acetate prior to viewing. The latter technique is more likely to produce precipitates on sections making them unsuitable for photography.
