This practice covers procedures for preparing and recording images of a suspension or suspensions of liposomes for the purpose of evaluating their shape and size distribution for quality assessment. The sample is to be vitrified in a liquid ethane slush onto specially prepared holey carbon electron microscope (EM) grids, and imaged in a cryo-holder placed in a cryo-capable electron microscope.
