Microscopy Facility

Electron Microscopes

Electron microscopes hosted by the Microscopy Facility include:

FEI Tecnai G2 Spirit BioTwin

Allows users to perform next-generation microscopy for life sciences; designed to provide high-contrast, high-resolution imaging and analysis with conventional thin-sectioned specimens, electron tomography, and cryoEM for hydrated samples

JEOL JEM 1200 EXII

Allows users to perform conventional transmission electron microscopy (TEM) with thin-sectioned specimens, and other transmission electron microscopy with specimens prepared using other methods

Zeiss SIGMA VP-FESEM

Allows users to perform conventional secondary electron imaging, backscattered electron imaging, cryo-SEM, EDS elemental analysis, variable pressure SEM, and serial block face imaging and 3D reconstruction
