[Histonet] Fixative Question

From:"Sheffield, Tiffany L"

Hello fellow Histonetters!
    Could someone recommend a fixative for EM/TEM for bone.  I am
familiar with a few techniques from the Handbook of Histology Methods
for Bone and Cartilage by An & Martin. I am wanting to preserve synovial
and bone/cartilage tissue with attached antibodies for electron
microscopy without destroying the antibody-tissue binding? I was just
wondering if any of you had any experience with these techniques or
could recommend a fixative?Any help would greatly be appreciated.
