The phase-contrast TEM can envision the high-contrast images of nano structures of soft-materials, such as liposomes, viruses, bacteria, cells, protein molecules, nano particles, toner, plastics and rubber, etc., without staining process which may cause damages on the subjects. The natural structure of the sample distributed in the solution can be observed by preparing the sample with rapid vitreous ice embedding method and using cryo phase-contrast TEM.
