  • Electron Microscopy

  • The transmission electron microscopy (TEM) laboratory offers a wide range of technologies. Our broad expertise enables us to devise innovative procedures for the study of unusual samples.

    TEM services include:

    • Negative staining
    • Standard fixation, embedding and sectioning protocols
    • Pre and post-embedding cytochemical and immunological localization techniques using peroxidase and colloidal gold markers
    • Acrylic resin embedding

    The transmission electron microscope laboratory uses a Morgagni 268, manufactured by FEI. This scope is a fully digitized, high resolution, high performance, 100 KV instrument equipped with a 6 megapixel digital camera system in addition to a conventional 50 frame film camera.
