Imaging Cores - Electron


Imaging Cores - Electron (About)


The core facility is a full service lab providing access to advanced expertise in Biological Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) related research, from consultation to imaging service and training to faculty, scientists and students on campus, external research institutions and industrial community.

We receive previously fixed samples, prepare them for TEM, negative staining and immunoelectron microscopy techniques, and perform ultramicrotomy, digital imaging and interpretation of results. Support is also available in planning for future electron microscopy experiments, writing grants, publications, and collaborations.


The core facility is at this location.
