Analytical Imaging Facility

OLD-Electron Microscopy

The Analytical Imaging Facility provides complete sample preparation utilizing a broad spectrum of techniques for examination by Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) or Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). Whether your interests lie in standard morphology or immunohistochemistry our staff will design protocols that will facilitate your experiments and optimize your results. Once the samples are processed, users can either work on the microscopes with one of our staff or independently (following training). Please see or contact one of our staff to plan a future experiment.

  • Transmission Electron Microscopes

    Microscope in which a beam of electrons is transmitted through an ultra-thin specimen, interacting with the specimen as it passes through it. 


      Highlighted Features: 

      • Cellular structure
      • Electron tomography
      • Single particle analysis
      • Macromolecular localization
      • Host-pathogen interaction
      • Tissue pathology
    Header TEM  
  • Scanning Electron Microcope

    Microscope that produces images of a sample by scanning it with a focused beam of electrons. The electrons interact with atoms in the sample, producing various signals that contain information about the sample's surface topography and composition.


      Highlighted Features: 

      • Surface imaging
      • Macromolecular localization
      • Host-pathogen interactions
      • Elemental analysis
      • 3-D reconstruction
      • Correlative Fluorescence and Electron Microscopy (CLEM)
    Header SEM  
  • Specimen Preparation for Electron Microscopy

    The expert staff can design a specimen preparation protocol to optimize cellular preservation tailored to your individual experiment objective.
