Electron Microscopy Unit

The Electron Microscopy Unit offers our users the expertise to perform ultraestructural studies of their biological samples of interest.

For doing so the facility is equipped with: 

  • Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) JEOL JEM-1011
  • Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) JEOL JSM-6390LV
  • Ultramicrotom Leica UC6-FC6
  • Emitech K850-225 Critical point dryer
  • Emitech K550X-240 Sputter coater

We provide assistance in order to get ready the sample including the embedding and both cryo & ultramicrotomy of cells and tissues. 

In addition, we offer the support for acquisition and later imaging analysis. 

After receiving a proper training, users can run microscopes by their own, only along the workday.
