Ultrawide transmission electron microscopy image of a mouse kidney
Ultrathin sections of a mouse kidney mounted on a SiN Window Chip were imaged using the Limitless Panorama (LLP) function, an automated montage system. Sections mounted on a flat, grid-bar free SiN Window Chip allow us to view the entire area without any wrinkles. To record this wide field of view in high resolution, automatic montage imaging (96 × 90 images) was carried out using LLP at a pixel size of approximately 5.6 nm/pixel. The images thus obtained have approximately 20 billion pixels, allowing us to observe the entire kidney cortex region (distribution of glomeruli and the network of tubules) while maintaining a resolution that allows us to observe the basement membrane structure of the glomerulus.
