Although transmission electron microscopy is usually used for high-magnification viewing,
it is certainly possible to use it at low magnification as well. That is, one can produce similar
micrographs of tissues taken by light microscopy and electron microscopy at the same
magnification. Even at the same magnification, however, you can easily tell the two kinds of
micrographs apart. How?
A) The image in the electron micrograph is still sharper.
B) Tissue viewed by electron microscopy is colored, whereas light micrographs are always black
and white (and shades of gray).
C) Tissue for light microscopy cannot be fixed (no fixation).
D) Tissue for electron microscopy cannot be sectioned.
