The electron microscopy platform is dedicated to ultrastructural analysis of biological and material samples by electron microscopy (EM). The core offers high quality EM imaging services at a low cost. With state-of-the-art sample preparation and imaging equipment, the core offers trainings in sample preparation (including chemical fixation, sectioning of cells and tissues or preparation of non-cellular materials), operation of equipment, data acquisition and data interpretation. The core also provides personalised training on ultra-microtome sectioning with Diatome diamond knife. Consumables for sample preparation are also available at purchase from the core.
