In correlative microscopy, light microscopy provides the overview and orientation of the complex cells and tissue, while electron microscopy offers the detailed localization and correlation of subcellular structures. In this chapter we offer detailed high-quality electron microscopical preparation methods for optimum preservation of the cellular ultrastructure. From such preparations serial thin sections are collected and used for comparative histochemical, immunofluorescence, and immunogold staining.In light microscopy histological stains identify the orientation of the sample and immunofluorescence labeling facilitates to find the region of interest, namely, the labeled cells expressing the macromolecule under investigation. Sections, labeled with immunogold are analyzed by electron microscopy in order to identify the label within the cellular architecture at high resolution.
