RE: freeze fracturing skin samples
Ah. Tim's comments are correct. I was thinking of a method to expose
the internal structures of samples without sectioning.
Freeze-fracture in this sense is very different and is used for
membranes, lipids, and the like. Today's Monday for me, and I wrote
Freeze-fracture is used for EM, but you have to have very specialized
equipment to do it. If you don't have the equipment you can probably
find a university in the Boston area that has it.
