Electron Microscopes

Electron Microscopy

The Electron Microscopy (EM) Facility, was developed by the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience, and the Materials Section of the Chemistry Department in a joint interdepartmental initiative.

The EM Facility houses a Scanning Electron Microscope (JEOL 5510) and a Transmission Electron Microscope (JEOL 2000FXII). The Jeol 5510 SEM is equipped with an Energy Dispersive X-ray Microanalysis Detector (Oxford Instruments). Both microscopes are capable of digital imaging.

Services provided by the EM Facility staff can be tailored to the needs of the investigator. The examination of a broad range of specimens from cultured cells to polymers, and from nanoparticles to botanical samples can be carried out in the EM Facility.
