In CLEM (correlative light - electron microscopy), specimens are imaged by both light/fluorescence and electron microscopy and the resulting images are then superimposed/correlated. This approach combines the specificity or functionality of fluorescent stainings with the increased resolution of electron microscopy. The specimen processing procedures for CLEM are highly varied and need to be customized to address the nature and requirements of any particular experiment.
