Electron microscopy is a powerful magnification tool, designed to detect fine details at high magnifications (sub-nm).
A wide range of samples can be observed using scanning and transmission electron microscope, including cells, cell organelles, viruses, cell infection assays, tissues and tissue slices, bacteria and bacterial interactions, fungi and many more. Gold labelled secondary antibodies can be used to visualize antigens located on the surface of the sample or within the sample.
We offer sample preparation and acquisition of scanning and transmission electron microscopy data of:
We are in the process of installing a transmission electron microscope at the faculty and will open training courses for students.
